Radar Detector

For those that like pictures...... here is how I installed my radar detector. Seeing how I never use that space, the remote head unit fits nicely. The voice module/speaker is right under it.
The larger images look better.

Re: Radar Detector

Does the unit still detect ok since it is tucked away in that pocket behind all that metal? I'm not familiar with that particular model so I didn't know if it has remote antennas or if it does laser, etc. Seems like that would effect your range if it does not have remote sensors. Also where is it getting power from?

I mounted mine off the bottom of the light sensor camera that hangs below the rearview mirror then routed the power cable underneath the headliner along the windshield down to the fuse box (hidden out of sight). I will have to post some pics.

Re: Radar Detector

The remote antenna is in the grille.
The laser is in front of the rearview mirror.

Sweet, So what brand is that if you don't mind me asking? Also, where is it getting power? Batteries?

Re: Radar Detector

Only 1 radar detector I would buy. Valentine one. I know it works from personal experience and it tells you how many, where they are at etc. It is expensive but I know it is guaranteed to work. Just my opinion.

Re: Radar Detector

I ran power up to the unit. It is a whistler brand (3500). The best site to get info on detectors is:

Re: Radar Detector

Oh. Mine is just a wide open hole. Sometimes I put my wallet up there on longer road trips. Does everyone have the spot under the driver visor?
I hide a door opener up there since we didnt get the homelink.
