As of March 2019, the classic, original V1 is no longer produced. 

There was never an offical Valentine sales or service agent in New Zealand, Valentine only sold (and repaired) in the USA.

We haven't stocked the Valentine V1 for a number of years for a number of reasons, including:

  • Newer, more cost-effective technology available
  • No obvious New Zealand distributor and we do no parallel import products
  • No official New Zealand Valentine radar repair agent - return shipping to the USA is expensive

But if you're still relying on reviews of friends who heard from a friend's grandfather that the V1 was the best and you really want to buy one, read the independent review site Raday Roy tear the Valentine 1 apart here BEFORE YOU BUY ELSEWHERE.

We invite you to consider a more modern alternative from EscortUnidenGenevoK40 or Stinger.
