Any reason why you put the display behind the radio screen?

When the display screen and cigarette lighter cover are closed, you can’t even tell the system is installed. I run the Escort app for my display. I can drop the screen and open the cigarette lighter cover if for some reason my phone is not connected

Very nice! I like it. Do you have lidar aswell? Sorry I'm not familiar with escorts. I'd like to see head placement aswell if that's the case.

Very nice and clever install.
I would disagree.
Radar head is installed behind the honeycomb grill. Thats the recipe for reduced range of your radar detector.
I cant really see front laser heads but if they are behind the grill (to make it stealthy) or at least recessed you will be getting punch throughts with most of lidar guns out there.

Your installer might did great interior install (however I d never install main control unit and display like this out of reach) but he lacks LJ knowledge for sure.

The radar sensor is behind the grill but the laser sensors are flush with the grill.

If the grill is plastic, it shouldn't affect radar range too much. As for the jammer heads, yes they should be at a minimum flush with the grill although ideally sticking out slightly appx. 1/4". @Jiminy CriQet, can you post a picture of the front heads?
