Which mounting position and detection strategy has worked best for you?
I understand the sentiment behind NetJunkie's comments. With that said, I find the V1 gives plenty of warning when mounted deep in the tint in the extreme upper left of the windshield. I am more concerned with the detector not being visible from outside the car, than gaining a few hundred feet of additional warning.

When you mount it make sure it has a direct line of sight out the front and rear windshield. Be careful not to put it behind the tinting on the windshield.

Can you post a pic of where you mounted it?

funny...i JUST finished hard wiring my V1 using the greatlakes mirror mount. *i* think it's pretty good.
The wire hides in the molding along the top of the windshield all the way over to and down through the A pillar molding.

How did you route the wiring?
Valentine1 is a detector. Here is a link to their site:

Woah, hold on what does this V-1 thing do, is it a jammer? A radar detector? or does it send a lower speed to the gun??? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif
The testing I've done against known signals in my area tells me the V1 is sensitive enough that any loss in range I experience is not significant in real situations.

I like the location of you valentine, but I wanted to ask if it still had an adequate view out the rear?? ...I just want to make sure that I know when someone "bad" is sneaking up behind me.
