Any owners use one of the Valentine 1 radar/laser detector?
I've always been under the impression that by the time these things pick up the signal it is already probably too late. One video I saw on Youtube showed it alerting before coming round a corner to a waiting patrol car.

Any thoughts?

They can usually hear us before they see us anyway haha!

True! That's what I was told last time I was tugged.

Been using mine for about 3 years now, couldn't recommend it enough!

I haven't seen the video, but it alerts me consistently earlier than you would expect, it picks up the deflected/reflected laser bouncing around off previously targetted cars and then tells your where it is. If you value your license at all then you should get one :)

I think it was one of your posts that made me look into it further. It certainly looks a good bit of kit anyway.
Is it the same model throughout the world or do they have a different model for different continents?

I've been doing a bit of reading and a lot of reviews seem to be praising the Escort Max 2 or Escort Redline XR. Some of the detection levels of these things are pretty amazing (tested on straights and on S-bend roads)
