Opinions are everywhere but few individuals have the specialized detector knowledge to make truly insightful comments. Please consider the following:
Car and Driver magazine, at one time the most authoritative of the detector testers, reviewed its choice of the top three detectors. V1 Gen2 was found to have the longest detection range of all in straight-down-the-road tests. In around-the-corner tests, V1 Gen2’s range was double that of the other detectors.
Roadshow by CNET.com reviewed all the radar detectors available and chose its favorites in five categories. V1 Gen2 was ranked Best Detector Overall.
Road & Track’s Zach Bowman interviews Mike Valentine on the lengthy evolution of the game-changing V1 into the completely transformed V1 Gen2.
Though time has somewhat passed this by, Vortex Radar’s Ariel Bravy does an exhaustive test of an early version of V1 Gen2 and provides a live interview with Mike Valentine. Please note: Bravy adds his updates at the bottoms of sections so scroll to their ends.
