i would recommend hard-wiring it, that way you dont have to turn it on and off manually and it looks much more clean cut. ive always hard-wired my radar detectors. ive been pulled over probably 10 times with the radar detector in plain view and not received any sort of ticket.GreenBird said:I wouldn't hard wire such a device. When you get pulled over, the cop will see the detector and write you up for anything he can. You need to be able to rip it off and throw it in the center console, under the seat, or in glove box.
wire it in parallel with something (radio?) that is on the circuit you want.
