Anyone know where I can go get one of these locally? I'm so impatient.. but if you don't know, then i can order it too.. just tell me where you can get it for cheap.

Eric - Where did you get your valentine?? I'm planning on probably clipping mine to the sun visor and then have the wire run through the airbag pillar and have a concealed display, then i'll have power everytime without having to waste a cig lighter.

Doesn't have to be valentine, i heard escort passport was just as good too.

Thx!

I don't think you can buy a valentine at any stores.. .? If you order it direct from them, I think it is something like $25 to get it the next day.

Passport 8500 cost me $239 plus shipping.

Just in case u want something a little cheaper than the valentine.
Hmm good deal.. but i live in VA and radar detectors are illegal here.. what should i do? Valentines have those concealed things and i can run the power wires through the pillar or down close to it probably to hide it..

I have mine mounted the same exact way. Mounted the V1 on the sunvisor and ran the wire down the A pillar just pushed it in between the pillar and the piece covering it. Put the concealed display in the back of the lint tray with some velco to hold it down. So when it starts going off i just look right there in the lint tray. I think its a perfect spot instead of mounting the display low like around your ashtray. I say your best bet is to order it directly from V1 or maybe catch one on Ebay or something.

Hope that helps some.

I'm not too sure about having it on your visor especially in VA. It's so noticeable and they do give out $95 tickets for having one. I have my Solo S2 in the upper lefthand corner of the windshield using the windshield bracket.

I live like 1 min from VA so I'am always in VA most of the time. I have mine on the visor, there is no way you can see it coming towards me unless you knew it was there. I have it on the visor closest to the A pillar and ran the wire down the A pillar. If I do get pulled over for something in VA its not very hard to pull the V1 and the clip off quick. If he sees the cord or something. Say hell officer thats where I plug my phone in or something since its a phone wire lol.

Not yet. However, I am going to hardwire my V-1 and it will be relatively hidden.
