As I said, I have had both and my Passport is long gone and sold. The range in every band on the V1 is better, it tells me where the signal is coming from, picks up multiple bands at once and tells me how many are shooting at me. This enables me to know if the signal is behind, in front or what ever and the Bogey counter is the best way to pick out false alarms. The Passport does not enable me to do that, thus my opinion. Many of the tests that are on the Passport site were not scientific head to head tests. There is one scientific head to head test where they guy on the Valentine 1 site claims that he lost because some guy from Autombile Magazine has it out for him and he totally takes the guy's methodology apart piece by piece, its kind of funny. Certainly don't/did'nt think the Passport was a bad detector, but the Val 1 is just better IMO having had both.
