Hey guys

Just wanted to show off my R3 hardwire install.
The sucktioncup that came with the unit is terrible with my windshield (couldnt make the RD point straight) so I switched it with a samsung phone stand.

I think Im pretty happy with this outcome and it only took me 15min max to do the hardwire part.
I wish it could be more stealth so I would not need to unplug it everytime I leave the car outside my place, maybe one day I'll have a remote install but with the sensitivity of this unit I am not sure I could go to anything else... cops playing I/O is pretty common here so sensitivity is my highest priority.

Why did you decide against mirrortap? That had to be a thought at some point since you have it right next to the mirror?

Yes I thought about it but I wanted the mute button and tapping into the fuse box was really handy and easy anyway
