valentine 1 questions

A couple quick questions:
1) I've been driving and a J has popped up on the display a couple times. What does the J mean?

2) Anyone who has hard wired the V1 into the fuse box have the issue of the wire falling out of the head liner? is there an easy for or am I just going to have to keep tucking it back in constantly?

1) J means Junk. It automatically recognizes that the alert is junk so it won't go off to the same alert again. These can be garage doors, weird frequencies, etc.

2) Mine isn't hard wired, however I do have my wire going from the device, between the posts where the passenger sun visor pops into place, and then into the A-Pillar.

1. "J" does mean "junk", like Stig said, but it's for junk detectors. Cheaper detectors leak RF energy in the same bands as radar (K and more recently Ka). This will cause a false alert but the V1 can recognize when this happens and then stops alerting to it, at the same time notifying you that it's doing this by showing "J" in the display.

2. I've hardwired my V1 into the fusebox and have had no problem with the wire coming out of the liner -- just tuck it in as far as your fingers let you. I occasionally take the V1 down and the last part of the wire that plugs into the unit hangs -- unavoidable. However, I do tuck it back over the RVM to get it out of sight until I put the V1 unit back up.


Cheers.

"j-out" is on page 1 of the manual.

Here's a good video on setting up your V1 to cut down on false alarms. Did this years ago when I got mine and it has been rock solid since.
