My Passport 8500 (non-x50) died this past month. Everytime I stepped on the gas I would get a false laser and scare the crap out of myself. Going with another passport was easy b/c I had a $2k K40 dual detector setup in my audi and my passport was better. I did not get front/rear detector capabilities with passport but that was more of a cool feature and marginally useful. If the detector was going off I was slowing down period.
So now I have the new 9500i (gps enabled detector) and the smart cord hardwire setup but not sure how/where I want to install it????
Anyone have any recommendations on:
1. Where to install detector (behind rear view?)
2. Where to tap into for power (btw I have homelink mirror with compass)
3. Where to install the remote display and mute button?
4. I am also thinking of getting the laser shifter add-on. Tips on this install?
Pictures are even better!
