    Good call. How about a black sock with a hole in it?

    This is my Radar Detector. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My Radar Detector is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my Radar Detector is useless. Without my Radar Detector, I am useless. I must use my Radar Detector actively. I must evade my enemy, who is trying to ticket me. I must detect him before he shoots me. I will. Before God I swear this creed: my Radar Detector and myself are defenders of my community, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no speed limit, but freedom to speed. Amen.

    I'm buying one next week. I'm not waiting until something happens and wish I had one then go buy it. The CM videos and rediculous drivers caught on tape is just a plus.

    Just installed my DR400G-HD tonight. The software works surprisingly well. The video is pretty dark at night (I won't get daylight shots until tomorrow). Did you guys adjust the brightness settings at all, or just leave them at default?

    I have all of the LEDs and voices disabled, and removed the GPS speed overlay on the video for now. It's hard-wired to switched power, so it stops recording when the car is turned off (no parking mode).

    Just bought it as well, should be here next week.

    I want to use parking mode. Do I have to hardwire to a constant power source when no key is in the ignition? Will it drain my battery after 24 hrs?

    Has to be hardwired to a constant source and no it won't drain until maybe 72 hours or more.
