Hi, brand new user to the radar detector world.. recently bought a x50 blue. I thought about hardwiring it, didn't want to spend 35bux for the directwire smartcord. But wants to keep the Mute function close.
Anyways, I thought about doing this, but it probably wouldn't work without some switching of wires. Get a phone cord extension adapter and a phone cord. Run the phone cord around the pillars and all the way to my center console into the extension adapter. Plug in the cigarette smartcord into the extention adapter.
Anybody ever tried that and does it work?
If that doesn't work. I would have to settle with hardwiring it and forfeit the mute function. Will need help on wiring. Did search for hardwiring but didn't find much of help.
I'm looking to cut up a phone cord (will those with only 2 wires work?), ground 1 wire, find the positive side and hook it up to a 3amp fuse, then tap it into my sunroof control. Will that work?
