    Which fuse is ok to replace with a fuse tap?

    . 2017 Ford Focus ST1. Here are the options: I’m wondering if perhaps #87, the heated steering wheel, which as far as all the switches I’ve found, is something I don’t have. Pardon the photo orientation. I did take them vertically so it’s the forum code .....

    Your first radar detector(s)

    . My first experience was as a passenger, the original Escort. I didn’t think much of it since it didn’t seem to do much lol. Then my own first ownership was late, late 80s for me. I don’t remember the model of my first but it falsed enough that I thought it was busted and exchanged it for...

    Review: Valentine One's Carrying Case for the V1 and V1G2

    . Earlier this week, on a whim, I went into Valentine One's website to look at the V1g2V2. Then on a secondary whim I looked at accessories. Right now I have my V1 Blend Mount'd to my mirror but the coiled cord coming down and back into the armrest power port which has V1's cig lighter...

    I wasn't paying attention to Waze ... but actually I was ...

    Waze tells me that there is a cop up ahead along my route. This part of the route is surface streets. The only thought that went through my head was "this is different". Cops don't normally show up in this part, as in hardly ever. I should have been paying attention to the overall situation...

    I was depending on Waze this past Saturday ...

    It was mid-afternoon on Saturday in southeast Florida and I'm cruising along in the right lane of the express superslam at my normal highway speed of 72-75mph (speed limit 70 though I've gone 72-75 on hwy since getting my license in the idiotic 55mph days). I had my V1 mirror-tapped into my...

    Has anyone done a permanent install on a Ford Focus ST?

    My previous Ford Fiesta SES had an autodimming mirror which made it easy to tap into the 12V there (using mirrortap) but the ST doesn't have an autodimming mirror lol. Can I somehow tap into the overhead light circuit, fish a wire FROM the overhead light area forward and out the...

    It appears the Volvo S60 has some sort of laser rangefinder

    In slow moving traffic earlier the V1 laser alert lit off, continuous, from behind. The only possible culprit seemed to be the S60 behind me. He changed lanes and the alert stopped as he got next to me. At the light I did a web search and results say the S60 has a brake-assist option that...

    On iPad Mini has anyone run Waze/similar next to an RD program?

    What I’m wondering is have you run an iPad mini using the side-by-side window function; with one running Waze and the other running, say, V1 connection / Escort Live?

    V1, V1CLE bluetooth module, RJ11 duplexer, BlendMount, Mirrortap, kydex ... its all here!

    lol. I wasn't sure if it would all fit in the title :D When you buy a new V1 and a new V1CLE BT module you get everything you need to create a functional system, including being able to hide the cables and hard tap the wire for a power supply. The V1 comes with two mounts, a suction mount...

    So glad I got the arrows

    V1 arrows in my case. I'm merging from 595W onto the 595W Express lanes. The V1 catches a whiff of Ka .... from behind. Naturally my first thought had been that it was from ahead. After all, this is essentially the beginning of the Express westbound direction. Now TWO signals from behind...

    The V1 and two K-band speed signs

    Went out last night to try and find some speed traps lol. Didn't find any, not from driving, not from Waze. I thought I would try and find some surface street traps, for example one of those idiotic 35-on-a-4-lane-across-road-that-should-be-50 type of thing. I found something similar when a I...

    How do I do this with a V1? What components do I need?

    I'm looking to order a factory V1. What I would like to do in order of preference: 1. Use the app(s) in iOS. 2. Use the concealed display 3. Hardwire the whole system 3a. Be able to move the unit from vehicle to vehicle (buying double components is ok to me) I'd like to mirror mount the...

    danpass in Miami, FL

    Now that the west side Express lanes of SE FL are (FINALLY) opening up I've decided to get a radar detector. I actually tried two, in the Before-Time (ie: the 80s). Two semi-economical units, one much better at dealing with falsing than the other, but ultimately I returned both as my secret...
