i found few days ago a post with pictures of an escort radar detector that has the display modified and integrated in front of steering wheel right side. it was not a model with remote or anything like that , was a simple 8500 , x50 or 9500i.
also i remember in the pic the display show the number of the radar frequency.
i plan do some mods and anything related with this subject (link, pic , diy) is a great help. i plan to remove the display from rd and relocate it in front console, drv side. thank you
