    those of you who have a radar detector, could you throw up a pic or two of where it's located and how it looks in the car. Basically where it is attached and how you are powering it.

    I'm considering getting one but not sure how it'll all fit.

    This may or may not help Zebug, but this may be the most expensive option. Custom mfgr install required and I can't find a damn thing anywhere!

    This is all you see with a K-40. Right light with a nice female voice tells you the type of radar along with the light. Frequency of beeps and flashing lights go faster as you get closer to a signal. Left light indicates front detector receiving radar signals. Apparently if you get hit with laser both light and the voice goes wild! Not happened yet. Other than the lights you have one little remote to control everything. High rent but always there always on and nothing hanging around etc.

    bump, I kind of forgo about this thread but I want to see how people have their detector set up before I do. Anyone care to show off their setup?

    Buy a V1 and use the blendmount. I will post pics later. Clean and works.

    I had my Escort mounted to my mirror in my Subaru WRX ( pic below) that I Traded for my new Hellcat, like Jwilkinson has in his Hellcat pic above. I used a bracket I found on Amazon and hope I can use it in my Hellcat, I also used the additional cable from Escort along with a fuse kit thing off of Amazon that allowed me to wire into the WRX fuse box that was located near my hood opener under the dash. This kit was nice as I did not need to splice a power wire under the dash and wish I could do the same on the Hellcat? My question is the Hellcat does not have any fuse boxes located inside the car correct? it's in the trunk and under the hood? How do I tap power on the Hellcat as I like hiding the power wire?
    Right now the detector is back in the window and plugged into the cigarette lighter. Once you do away with that wire trust me its hard to go back.
    Someone tell be how to get some power and I will rewire this thing the weekend.

    I tapped into the power to the mirror. There is a kit on Amazon for that also. I'll see if I can find it, it's been awhile

    I've have always relied on the v1 for protection.
    In my old 7 series Beemer, I had front and rear units hidden behind the bumper covers and the reporting heads in the ashtray space. Laser counter measure controls were also housed there.
    Now, I'm thinking times and technology have changed. Looking at the stinger vip for radar protection and I'm going back and forth over their units for laser or, more likely, the alp laser (parking sensor) system. Either way, v1 would be much more affordable. These new systems aren't cheap, but neither is my license.
    If I was to do a v1 now, I would hide it the rear center headrest and have it report to the hidden mirror that radar mirror is doing.
    Most of my local leo has gone to laser for speed enforcement so I'm thinking should prob concentrate on mitigating that threat and use radar detection for traveling and open road protection.
    No matter what you decide upon, I'm a firm believer in hiding the countermeasures both for protection from theft and not upsetting the officer who's asking questions,
