You can do what I did and use those vampire taps on the wires that go to the Cig lighter. You have to take off the console to get to it. Not very difficult at all.

Peaty is right. I keep my radar detector just to the left of the rear view mirror. It is an easy concept. I ran the wires from behind the console, through the dash board. Then near the fuse panel I went up through the side of it right by the driver door, you can see the lip, then used a screwdriver to pry the wire into the frame around the windshield. then ran it once around thepart of the visor that connects to the roof and it goes straight over to the radar detector. And no wires dangling at all!

Good Luck my friend!

Stuck my detector (V1) under the the passanger head rest. It's nicely out of site. The remote display is in the dash.

Peaty,

I saw that pic on your site. What I want to know is what happens when you are riding with a passenger?

If I have a passange I can move the main unit to the windscreen and use the suction cup mount. I drive solo a lot so it's not often that I do that. If it's a short drive I just leave it back there. Believe it or not it still works even with someone sitting there. The direction indicator just gets a little confused is all. But it still gives plenty of warning. It's nice to have it hidden so crooks and cops don't see it. My windows are tinted so you really can't see it unless you look really hard.
