Absolutely. Got me out of 8 possible tickets the last 2 days as I was driving back from the PC.

Great Question! Does it solve the false warnings that the F10 is producing??

That's due to the drivers assistance pkg. call valentine and they will walk you through some settings and it will go away. I'm very happy with them.

I bought a Valentine One recently (like within the past 2 weeks). I assume I'm covered by the "upgraded" model?

I followed their instructions for disabling POP and no longer get false warnings caused by the blind spot monitoring.

I have the driver's assistance package, and drove with the blink side detection operative, and it had no effect on the V1, and I did not disable POP detection -- had it set to "L" mode.

I have one with POP and I had to disable the feature due to the falsing. I also turned on the speed camera filtering too. It's been much better to deal with.
