Well, since it's Valentines Day I thought I would mount and wire my new Valentine One Radar detector in my new Q60RS. I bought it at Christmas and decided to keep it for myself. I used a BlendMount mirror mount that was designed for the V1 and Japanese made mirror stem. It mounted really secure with no wiggle, very stable. I ran the power wire behind the mirror, into the front of the headliner, down the driver side front pillar and into the fuse box. Used a fuse tap to connect the power and all worked great.

Will have to wait to test on a long trip till next month but, this new upgraded V1 is supposed to filter out false K signals created by driver assist electronics in the newer cars. Will let everyone know it works.

Here are a few images.. Sorry about the quality.

My V-1 needs an 'update' but the false signals are mind boggling. Let us know if the latest version helps solve this problem! :) Nice install btw.

Too bad scanners are illegal where I live...Would be handy to have when you're driving down what seems to be an empty stretch of road. Your installation job looks very clean.

I would love if scanners/radar detectors were legal in my area.. I would have avoided a few good tickets :(

Nice install though, interested to see how well it filters out the signals and waves from the drivers assistance electronics!

Yeah, my wife's GTI has a Escort 8500 and it has recently started to pick up loads of false Ks. I bought her the Valentine One for Christmas but she didn't like the way it fit in her car. Now it's mine, so I haven't had a chance to use it. Will be making trips to Vegas, Phoenix and LA this spring so will be giving it a real workout. Will update and let everyone know my findings.

Very nice install.... how is doing with false K alerts? I am told some k alerts can be caused by the new lane change signals, also new radar assisted cruise control and other driver assist electronics. The electric automatic doors, store alarms, etc are mostly x band. I always turn x off as no one around here uses it for traffic enforcement. Thanks for the Valentine links, I will check them out.
