Call 800 information and ask for Valentine.  Or look for their
ad in any of the car magazines.

Besides being a very good detector with a minimum of falsing,
the Valentine-1 has two features that make it different from
other radar detectors.  One: it displays numerically a count
of the number of separate "radar threats" it is receiving.
And two: it displays graphically whether the strongest
"threat" is coming from up ahead, to the side, or from
behind your vehicle.

I bought my V-1 thinking that these two features may be
a bit hokey, and I was primarily interested in the fact that
it was basically just a very good detector.  I've grown to
absolutely depend on these two features, though... they
make the detector *much* more usable.  It's not cheap, though.
