Valentine One Radar Detector Moment of the Month
January 2009: Free and Flawed
My girlfriend bought me a Passport 9500i for Christmas. I thought it was okay, not
great. Every day on my way to work I passed a speed sign transmitting K band. One morning
the 9500i went beep just like always but you know who was waiting for me in the parking
lot beyond the sign. He pulled me over, said I was doing 10 over.
He told me he would just give me a warning. Then he noticed the Passport on the windshield.
He bent down, looked me in the eye, and said, "If you had a V1 you would have known
I was there.” I asked him how he knew about V1. He told me that neither he nor his wife
drive anywhere without their V1s.
I took his advice. If a traffic cop prefers V1, you know it has to be the best. I received
my V1 today and replaced the 9500idiot.
