V1Driver is designed to add intelligence to your Valentine One Radar Detector so you can enjoy your Drive. It adds 3 forms of automatic muting (all selectable by Band): 1) By Speed (Savvy Emulation), if you are under the specified speed it will keep the Radar Detector muted. 2) By Time, it will AutoMute after a specified time. 3) By GPS Location, by long term tracking. This tracks hits of the same frequency in the same location spread over several days before considering it for lockout. If a signal later becomes absent it will remove the lock. V1Driver takes the infamous V1 "Arrows" to a new level by displaying the bogeys on a 2 dimensional map. So you can track how close they are before waiting for the arrows to "flip" direction. It has extensive audible options. Including Text-To-Speech of Band and Frequency. Audio can optionally use Hands Free Protocol (a phone call) on your car or motor cycle. This app is compatible with all iPhones and iPads that support iOS 9.0 or greater that include GPS. It will work in any orientation. An active cellular connection is not required. For viewing the map or backing up to the iCloud you will need a Data connection, but that is not required for day to day operation. iPads that do not have Cellular Chips have no GPS chip and will NOT work. This requires a Valentine One Radar Detector that is compatible with Valentine Research's Bluetooth LE Dongle. You should have Valentine Research's V1Connection App (freely available in the App store) operational before purchasing V1Driver. V1Driver will automatically connect to the Valentine One Bluetooth LE Dongle in the background. This feature of watching for the Bluetooth Dongle when away from your car does not use the GPS, uses very little battery and can be disabled if you wish. There is no guarantee V1Driver won't lock out an undesired signal. But it should clean itself up over time if it does. Other features include: - Alert Notifications with "Mute", "Lock" or "Snooze" acknowledgment - Alerts are iWatch compatible - Manual Mute (with automatic unmute from other bands) - K/Laser Snooze feature (for when stuck behind BSM or LEDs) - Live Map showing learning and unlearning process as V1Driver does it's thing - Live Alert status on the Map (strongest threat only, mirrors V1 display) - Compatible with Hardware version of Savvy and still Band selectable - Signal Strength meter with higher resolution than 8 fixed levels. - Rate of Ramp Up on Main threat and each Bogey on the Bogey Map. - iCloud Backup and Restore of your Database and Settings - Two Level Savvy Speed Setting (Startup and Quick Override) with automatic Reset and integrated current Speed - Extensive Data Filtering on the "Pin Map" to closer inspect what V1Driver is doing. - Delete unwanted individual or groups of pins or any "filtered" view directly on the Map. - View detailed information on any collected data point (Pin) from the Map - "2nd Chance" review of Manual Lockouts by allowing user to delete them within 24 hr's before they become permanent - Savvy Warmup feature to allow GPS to get good lock but keep detector quiet in false dense areas (e.g. Parking Garage) - Integrated help on each control throughout the app. - Savvy GPS Learning, it can learn what you set your Savvy Setting to and reapply it on your next trip to the same location. - User Settable GPS Accuracy. - Instant Replay that captures all events in real time all the time and can be played back at any time. - Live Histogram of your signal strength also shown as color intensity on your route on the Map - Support for Ku Band for European Users - Demo mode that uses the "Instant Replay" feature that has Speed, Location, Direction and Alerts, etc. of a real encounter. It will even drop "New Pins" along the route. - Support for "White Areas" these are designated areas like Police stations that you never want to lock out Note: "Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life."



  • Best V1 iOS app

    By far the best iOS app for Valentine One detectors. Love the savvy feature and other numerous custom settings.
  • I rarely write reviews

    But this is a pretty good app. The developer is also very active on the radarforums which shows interest in continuing improvements for the app. The default numeric settings are done right and have logic behind them, they’re also adjustable if desired.
  • Great app for V1 Drivers

    By itouchmyapps
    I love this app, the recent update lets you know “ALL CLEAR” when it doesn’t detect anymore bands after decrying some, I wish the voice alerts would be louder, for example I have CarPlay, it when I listen to music, it doesn’t dim the music, it just talks over the music, and you can faintly hear it, hopefully they read this and improve on that, that would be a nice feature to be heard if you’re playing music loudly and still want to make sure you hear the alerts.
  • V1 on steroids.

    By Jungleland26
    This is a must own app if you are a “driver” and have a valentine one. If George keeps the updates coming, I’ll keep making sure my customers buy this.
  • A must have for V1 owner!

    By Mcse@14921!
    A great complement to V1 radar. Keep up the update coming. Would be nice if we can choose model of our car. Instead of saying “V1 driver” when I get into car I would like it to say “S3 driver!” Make it an in-app purchase for $.99 for custom add on.
  • Makes Valentine 1 the best again

    By HeartDoctor
    V1 is a great radar detector but non-police alerts were becoming intolerable. Valentine updates helped but V1 driver painlessly suppresses most annoying falses without reducing sensitivity. No user intervention is required although there are ample opportunities for tuning settings. If desired a tremendous amount of information is available regarding signals detected. Updates occur several times a year with bug fixes and new features. Clearly a labor of love by the developer. Highly recommended, particularly for urban or suburban driving.
  • Like adding 2nd brain to V1

    By danhamcritic
    This app is a must for motorcyclists using a V1. I no longer have to take a hand off the bars to hit the V1 mute. This app gives you numerous ways to customize auto-muting. I won't ride without it. Best $10 I ever spent.
  • Absolute must-have for Valentine One owners

    By bigern79
    I’m relatively new to the world of radar detectors, but this app made the decision easy for me. This app unlocks capabilities that other detectors charge 2x the price for. The developer clearly has a passion for this and does a great job of providing updates and fixes. I’m looking forward to being a pro V1 user!
  • This turned into a grab the cash and run situation

    By sarelox
    No updates in over 3 months still buggy, I should had known, 10 dollars for an app, Not like franky, he made the best app for Android and he gave it away... All he does is run his mouth on forums. Get off your high horse and update the app
  • Best v1 app for iOS

    By collinpetit
    This application is a must for anyone with an iPhone and valentine v1. GPS lockouts, two display modes. Would not drive without it.
