Uniden just released firmware 1.53 for the Uniden R1 and Uniden R3. This is a small update that improves MRCD detection, changes how speed camera overspeed alert show up, and improves the responsiveness of the detector’s interface. This update adds some changes first brought over to the Uniden R7 with fw 1.29. Let’s cover all the …
This week I had the opportunity to sit down and talk to the man, the myth, the legend, Mike Valentine, and learn all about his brand new Valentine One Gen2. I got to ask him about the new changes and improvements in this next generation V1. Here is our complete discussion for you to enjoy. …
The Valentine 1 Gen 2 can be programmed using the V1connection app (free) for Android or iOS. This helps you tailor your V1 based on your preferences and driving needs. I recommend using V1connection just to program your V1 initially. Then when driving day to day, I recommend running JBV1on Android (free) and V1Driver on iOS …
JBV1 is easily one of the best countermeasure apps available. It’s was developed by @johnboy00 for the Valentine 1 (hence the name JBV1) and it has taken the place of YaV1 as the best app (it’s Android only) to run with your V1. It has also since added integration with the TMG laser jammer, plus …
Valentine Research has just started shipping the new Valentine One Gen 2 ($499). This is a huge update to the legendary Valentine One. The new V1 Gen 2 includes many hardware and software improvements. VR is planning on officially announcing it on their website next week and detailing all of the changes, but pre-orders have …
Radar detector detectors like the Spectre Elite are designed specifically to detect radar detectors. Ever wondered how RDD’s work? Will Theia be undetectable to RDD’s? Radenso just published an amazing video going over RDD’s. In this video, they explain exactly how radar detector detectors work and then gave us a look at what we can expect …
Uniden has just released firmware 1.29 (download here) for the Uniden R7 radar detector (purchase here). This update brings a long list of changes that Uniden has been working on the past months including many features specifically requested by enthusiasts. This firmware update improves MRCD detection range, allows you to dial back the sensitivity of …
Update: As of March 2020, the new V1 Gen 2 has started shipping out to those who’ve preordered. More info coming soon! Since March of 2019, the Valentine One has been out of stock on VR’s website. There’s been endless discussion and speculation on the forums ever since. You guys have been regularly asking what the …
Radenso has released firmware US19 for the Pro M which adds new alert tones for the different radar and laser alerts. Here’s a quick demo of the 15 different alert tones. They’re individually selectable for X, K, Ka, MRCD, MRCT, Gatso, & Laser. I’ve never been a huge fan of the default tones for K …
