I remember seeing something about this on Valentine's page. The two factors that make this difficult are 1) the height of the detector, and 2) the electronics that are used to determine direction. Most hidden units are mounted behind the grill, however the lower position results in less detection range. The direction feature seems to be based on timing (the difference in time between when a signal is detected on one direction sensor verses the other). If that is what the direction is based on, then the computer must know exactly how far apart the two sensors are. Because the V1 is not end-user programmable at that level, splitting the front and rear sensors would most likely result in the loss of directional function. Therefore it would be pointless to try and keep the directional sensors of splitting them up would render the directional capability useless.MKIVSupra said:Yup, I was wondering these same things. Unless you took a V1 unit apart and remote mounted the sensors or something but then you are stuck using that V1 in only that vehicle.
I thought your windows are tinted? I know you can still see it through tint but it doesn't stick out nearly as bad.Yukonart said:Only issue I've always had with mounting a detector that high up with the display visible is that it's pretty easy to see it at night from behind the car. Not something I've ever been keen on.
You mean like this... https://store.valentine1.com/store/products/20110ha.jpgYukonart said:I like the Passport's Smartcord accessory. You plug it in for power (or hardwire it) and mount the detector where you need it. The Smartcord has its own display, and can easily be mounted where only the driver can see it. . . . like just below the speedo.
