If you buy a cigarette lighter socket extender and cut off the female end w/ 6 inches of cord, you can wire up that socket under the dash. That way you can still unplug the radar detector and move it later and you retain the fuse in the power adapter.

In fact, you'll have to use the socket if your radar detector's power adapter is anything other than straight 12V.

ain't it recommended to put the radar in the center
It's recommended. A lot of detectors shoot out like cones. So what's gonna happen is his will hit the side pillar and stop.

So it just decreases visibility some. But it shouldn't be a whole lot.

ok I figured it out I placed the radar above the inside rear view mirror and routed the wires in the headliner down to the bottom of the cigg. lighter and splice it to that. works like a champ thanks for the input and ideas.

i hope you still have a fuse since you spliced your wires. what i did is buy another cigerette adapter. male (radar) to female (cigerrette plug). so the fuse is still attached and also if i want to sell my radar again, i wouldn't have to cut the wires. the fuse will help it from blowing up.

Popos use instant-on lasers over here.
Removing my fr license plate and
standing on my brakes saved me
a half dozen times, but I did get a
couple missing fr license plate tickets.
I believe I came out ahead on that.
Except the time I was going really fast...
If you aren't going too fast sometimes "losing" your insurance card will get you no insurance ticket instead of a speeding ticket...which you can get dismissed when you "find" your insurance card. Works here in DFW, at least.

what does removing front license plate do to help from lasers?
