Comparing Radar Warnings

v1 vs. Ordinary Detectors*

Military strategists agree that successful defense begins with good intelligence about the enemy. Valentine One® has a unique warning system relying on both forward- and rearward-facing antennas; it goes beyond Ordinary Radar Detectors by telling you — on every alert — where to look, and how many to look for. Once you have this intelligence report, you can easily decide when to defend and when you may simply shrug off a non-threatening alarm. Consider the following situations:
