The World's Best Radar Detector

Because you know how much I love gadgets, I just couldn't pass up telling you about the Valentine V1, considered by some racing experts to be the iPod of radar detectors.

I've just got to believe that people who participate in a 3,000-mile road race (like the writer of this excellent piece) uniformly choose this detector. The reason? It is the only one that tells you which direction the radar is coming from. If it is coming from behind you, there is no reason to worry or slow down.

If you decide to make the plunge and buy this radar detector for your car, here's one gem of a tip: Don't mount it on your dashboard if you want it to work properly.
