    Question Radar detector question

    I have a radar detector. I was wondering if there was another way i could supply power to it? Without using the lighter. I dont want to use the lighter because then i have to leave the little door open that exposes the cigg/ asstray. It also takes the smoothness away from the 05 interior. Any ideas??

    I've hard-wired 'em in before. All you need is a ground and a +12 V takeoff from the fuse block. Just make sure that you check whether the + is the sleeve or the pin.
