Bob, are you thinking of breaking speed laws? I'm shocked!Hey, share your experience, do those radar gizmos really work? And what brand are you using so I can check it out on YouTube.
Did you purchase the mate to the plug in the din slot?My van has a DIN slot above the overhead center console. Probably for a CB radio or similar device. There is constant 12v, switched 12v, ground, and illumination wired to it with very thin gauge wires to a 4 pin connector. I connected my V1 to this via a wire tap. I wonder if you don't have the overhead DIN if the wiring is still there.
Also, there is constant and switched power under the passenger side toolbox in the fuse area.
You are out of the loop for too long. THe current radar detectors are so sensitive that they can pick up police radar from more than a mile out. I didn't use it for 10+ years, I am shocked at the advances they made.Bob, are you thinking of breaking speed laws? I'm shocked!
One of my specialities in the USAF was electronic warfare, the use of the electromagnetic spectrum to attack and defend. So it was second nature for me to run a radar detector for many years. There are a range of strategies and tactics to be used with the detector based on the frequency used (which determine the ranges), stationary or moving and the topography. All of these are based on the idea that radar energy bounces around and you get warning based on some other guy getting irradiated. If you are in the main beam he has already got you.
However, with the increased use of laser speed sensing, there isn't a detector in the world that will provide you with warning for those devices that is meaningful.
In my older age and with increased use of lasers and the fact that radar detectors are illegal in VA (my current state) I no longer run them and don't feel a need to do so. I might exceed the limit by a little, but always obey the reduced limits going into a town or congested area, still applying tactical approaches to avoid unnecessary engagements with excitable guys with guns.
You may have confused what I said about LASER detectors with what I said about RADAR detectors.You are out of the loop for too long.
