Hello I'm new here, as above I'm starting out with the R1. I'm from Ontario Canada near Ottawa area..

I can't wait to get this device tomorrow ... But I have concerns, mounting on my dash police can see when they drive by. Having up high they can see too.

My car is 20% tint all round.. But I can see into people's cars, so cops can see in mine. I bought the visor pouch to conseal with hardwire cable, the problem is installing it lol so I also bought tint to put at the bottom front dash window in hopes that will block the view.. I'm still nervous there are RDD will detect it well passing me.

Tips ? ?

UPDATE. So I went to the source and bought a 12 foot extender.. So plug the cigarette lighter in, then the phone cord too the extender, then the other end of the cord too the uniden.. No hardwire cable needed. Although I do have the cable for it when I decide to do it .. I just have to pull the cigarette lighter plug out all the time. Now it's hidden in my visor, cord is in the trim of the door and roof.. Worked out :)

I do go past an unmarked today and nothing. But most likely his specter was off. Because it works at automatic doors lolz. I followed vortexs setup except I kept x band on.. Bc OPP ... You never know eh

Welcome to the RD Forum!

Using any other available counter measures?

I am the perfect example that old dogs CAN learn new tricks! This Forum is packed with tons of useful information from best detector for where you live and drive mostly (so far there is NOT a single detector that is best for everyone/everywhere), proper mounting possibilities, additional counter measures, fast but intelligent driving habits, and of course @Vortex videos!

Hardwirekit for the R1 is a good option for making it stealthy, easy enough to use and tap off an existing circuit. Do you have a tint strip up top of the windshield? I have found in my car that the top left of the window is a great spot cause people don't look in the corners for them, I can reach it easily to take it down without it being on obvious that I'm doing it if I get pulled and I can read the display easier. Plus the pillar blocks everyone on the left side of the car from seeing it as I don't have to tell windows. It is under my tint strip and you can't see it from the front. With tinted windows it should be fine. Run it in dark mode and then have it only come on dimly when it gets an alert. It will be fine against the Spectre. You would have to be literally nose to nose with a cruiser running a Spectre to have it detected.

Welcome fellow Canadian to RDF. Good choice on the R1, I have an R3. The search function here is your best option, tons of info on legality of an RD in Ontario, how to setup it up, where to mount it, the impact of window tint and so on. Good luck

Some videos of interest:
Nice visor concept. How does it hold up to heat over time? I’ve found that elastic straps give out after one or two summers.
Thanks for sharing.

Haven’t used it myself, just one of the few videos I have saved in case I ever need to go stealth.
