You can change V1’s programming to meet special operating requirements, but should you? Police and the military strive for "situation awareness". If you know what’s going on all around you, you’re unlikely to be surprised by an ambush. Situation awareness is also the philosophy behind V1. The front and rear antennas, the Radar Locator and the Bogey Counter all work together to keep you informed of What is around you, How Many, and Where.
Considering V1’s broad capability, it’s easy to operate. All visual warnings are automatically corrected for outside brightness, so you never have to fiddle with a dimmer. Moreover, V1 already has three computer modes ready to adapt the Warning System to your particular needs. A lot of thought went into these various features to make them work as a system. I personally think V1 works appropriately for almost any situation I can imagine. Still, you can reprogram it to change its responses. We’ve been building in that flexibility for some years now. The risk is that you’ll diminish your situation awareness. Worse yet, you might inadvertently disable a protection you really need. So think carefully before changing the factory settings.
|1||Traffic monitoring devices have been introduced in many cities around the US to facilitate monitoring of traffic conditions and average traffic speed. These monitoring devices create "false" alarms within the K radar band. Valentine Research has developed a filtering algorithm to suppress these unwanted monitoring devices. This feature is enabled/disabled by user feature "".|
|2||Enabling the "" feature (DOWN ARROW) disables the V1s ability to detect K Pop (Ka Pop functions normally.)|
|3||V1s with serial numbers ending in 1078 or higher (software version 3.892 or higher), include a new Extended Serial Protocol ("ESP"). ESP has been added to enhance communication with future peripheral devices. Since ESP utilizes the Valentine One's standard RJ-11 power connector, it could possibly interfere or change the operation of third party devices that have been developed for the V1 utilizing the Legacy Concealed Display output stream. Every attempt has been made to automatically detect what peripheral is connected to the Valentine One's power jack. However, to accommodate any unforeseen problems, we have added user feature "" to insure third party devices that cease to function correctly with ESP can be made fully operational. Feature "" is factory defaulted to OFF (FRONT ARROW) and must be enabled by setting feature "" to REAR ARROW.|
