A quick question about that Valentine 1 (or any other radar detector for that matter, I guess): you just use the suction cups to put it on your front windshield, right? And how does it get power? You run a wire down to the cigarette lighter inlet? I'm not too wild about wires just hanging around my car. Also, my ipod is plugged into that one already. Hmmm....
Remove the trim behind the rear view mirror and use the power for the lighted mirror. You can use a short piece of telephone cord to make the jump (at least you can for the Escort. Don't know about the Valentine however).
So you just "pop" off the rearview mirror and splice into the circuit there??? Any more detail on that operation?
i see that the great state of fla. is now trying to outlaw radar detectors. if you live in fla. i would contact your representative.
