I've wired my x50 through the fuse box and everything is working great. I do however have this issue. I own a 2004 Voltswagon Jeta and the Cigarette lighter fuse has power on all the time even when the cars off. In other words the detector stays on all the time unless I reach up and turn it off. It's kinda funny the radio is the same way, I guess they had the passenger in mind when they designed this. It's not really that big of a deal, I've been doing it this way for 2 years. Does anyone know a fuse source in my car that is not "Hot" all the time. I would like the detector to turn off when the car is cut off. Oh, will it hurt the detector to automatically start up when the car is cranked? I didn't think about that until now.
Also on the detector it's states I'm getting 12.5 V
That's normal Correct?
