I am debating on to upgrade my Valentine One or not?? It's 101.00 with shipping. It will have PoP on it if I do it. I know PoP is used in Florida but not sure if I should wait now or later and get a radar detector built in to the milly with laser jammers. Any ideas/info??

yep ...read on

POP Mode
How the POP Mode Works
The POP Mode is a feature of certain radars made by
MPH Industries. Its only purpose is to defeat radar detectors.
It works by transmitting radar in a short burst — only 67
milliseconds (that’s 0.067 seconds).
What you should know about POP Mode
It is inaccurate. In order to outfox detectors, MPH Industries
has pushed the technology outside the accepted principles
of engineering. And the company admits as much when its
Operation and Service Manual advises users as follows:
“A note of caution: Information derived during the
POP burst is non-evidential…Citations should not be
issued based solely on information derived from the
POP burst.”
Nonetheless, POP Mode is a reality and it will be used at
the discretion of individual enforcers.
Valentine One has full-time POP Protection
There is nothing you must do to activate POP coverage.
It’s built in, and it operates full time. It covers POP on two
bands — specifically the MPH Industries models Bee III
and Enforcer on both K and Ka.
What the “Dee-Dah-Doo” Tone means
Valentine One is designed to recognize — and ignore —
phony POP signals transmitted by poorly-designed
detectors. Occasionally a false alarm will be started before
verification is certain. If it then determines the source is a
junk detector, it will notify you it is retracting that alert with
a “Dee-Dah-Doo” sound. A flashing J ( ) indicating “junk”
will flash briefly in the Bogey Counter.

Read the reviews, laser jammers don't work.
