We travel to Laramie, Wyoming, at least six times each year in a half-ton pickup, a 1,400-mile round trip. I bought a Valentine One Gen 2 just for these road trips.
Here’s what I have learned:
1) Only a small percentage–around 8-10 percent–of the law enforcement vehicles we encounter on the road are running radar. I know this because the Valentine does not alert and we pass them without incident.
2) Of the law enforcement vehicles we encounter that are running radar, V1 Gen2 locates them far, far in advance of them locating us. No traffic stops in 18,000 miles and counting.
I rest my case.
