    Best Radar Detector?

    Windshield mounted detectors are still mostly designed to plug into your 12V "cigarette" port. Some come with a straight cord so you can wire it into your vehicle's 12V system. Basic knowledge of automotive 12V power helps, like location of your fuse panel.

    V1G2: dreading the startup

    A silent startup sequence option would have been nice! Edit: I just remembered... YEARS ago with the V1g1, I built this crazy rig that automuted the startup. Once 12V was applied to the detector, a timed relay would tap the mute button via the 4-conductor cable. No I don't remember the pinout...

    usb cable

    As you can see, I've actually put a label on mine: "Good for data/FW" so it doesn't get lost in the junk drawer. Edit: If you're using a Mac, be aware that the Mac version is especially fussy. I just use a Windows machine.

    usb cable

    If you're using a "junk drawer" USB cable, you may be out of luck. We have discovered that if you find a good one, label that cable and set it aside for firmware updates. Don't lose it! For some reason, the R7 (and other detectors) are really choosy about the quality of cable you use. Here's...

    Inside look of the worst Prolite ever

    Sugru Question
