i was wondering if it were possible to wire a radar detector to a l.e.d. bar or sumpthin of that sort, so when im listenin to my system i can be able to see when it goes off???? i was thinking of using that l.e.d. wire and lining my instrument cluster with it.
thanx

Ooo, I used my V1 in Canada, I had it mounted below the windscreen wiper on a Jeep Grand Cherokee because I wasn't sure if it was legal.

What I don't understand about that setup is that you need to have your V1 up on your windshield anyway!!! If you do decide to 'hide' it in the corner of the windshield or something, you ruin it's forward sensitivity and practically eliminate its ability to detect rear radar and certainly laser.....what's the use? Am I missing something? The mirror setup is cool. As for installing LED's....once agin, why? The unit has LED's. Why mess w/ it unless you can totally conceal it?

You have to follow the link that's at the bottom of the page for detailed install instructions. That page is quite slow but I think it would work well once implemented. Again, this is for people that want (read: need) detectors but can't have them. I don't think VDUB fits these requirements but one should never quash a mod challenge.
