Doubts . . . Maybe it’s not
working right
You bought Valentine One because you wanted the best
radar protection. When you’re really concerned about
having the best, doubts come easily . . . “Is it really working
right?” . . . “It didn’t give much warning that time. Is it dying
on me?”
Such doubts are not easily resolved by a few paragraphs in
a manual. Still, radar behaves according to laws of physics.
So does Valentine One. There are reasons for everything
that happens. Please consider the following possibilities.
If you didn’t get a radar alert from a radar car, was the 
radar turned on? Remember that Instant-on doesn’t 
send out a detectable beam until it’s triggered.
There are strong radars and weak ones. If you received 
a weak alert, could it have been a kind of radar that 
you’re not used to?
The radar antenna can be pointed any direction inside 
the radar car. It doesn’t have to point toward the front. 
Are you sure it was pointed at you? If it’s pointed away,
its strength as you approach is much less.
Traffic, particularly trucks, between you and the radar 
can block the beam. Were you blocked?
The radar beam travels in a straight line. Was there a 
hill or building in the way?
Rain, moisture, or dust in the air can shorten radar 
range. Could this be the reason for the weak alert?
Valentine One was designed to provide you with security.
