    That's the only reason I have my detector hardwired, my lighter is right in front of the cupholder.

    Does your car have a domelight? Why not just wire off of that?

    Actually very simple, but if your car has a "dumb" domelight like my cars do, your detector would only work with the doors open :roll: which is usually the only time you don't want it working...

    If you have a little switch on it that lets you turn it permanent on, just solder the hot on the RD to something around the bulb, then solder the ground to ground.
