First question. Anyone else have a Gen2?
So I've been running a Valentine 1 gen 1 since 1995. I have upgraded this Radar Detector 4 or 5 times. It currently is on the most recent firmware available for the Gen 1.
Now they have a Gen 2.
I bought a Gen 2 full retail. The reason is because of Covid and the shutdown Valentine Research is not doing upgrades yet. I am going to Florida in a few weeks and I wanted to get my hands on the new RD for the trip because it is blue-tooth to the phone and allows you to modify sweeps and whatnot to block persistent sources. Very useful.
I will have the old one afterword and I will probably sell it cheap enough for someone to get a discount off retail. That's another thread.
I was curious if anyone used the apps that were available on the Gen 1 through the Saavy link or whatever that was and if it was just not worth bothering.
Was from US Carberetion, don't remember exact kit but they are pretty good with facts and info iirc. Very easy to install and runs flawless. Get on their mailing list they occasionally have killer sales.
Back in the day before Fedex ground, Fedex shipped EVERYTHING, every, single package went to the hub in Tennessee. You ship something to your next door neighbor and it was flown out of state before coming right back. It had to do with their optimization system and it worked very well. This was in the 90s.
When the airplane fuel costs started to be an issue, it changed and they figured out a way to do local turn-arounds.
