I read it somewhere that the back of the radar should be touching the windshield when mounted....? Is this necessary? Does it affect it's capabilities to detect if not mounted/touching the windshield?
Another question... I purchased this item for my X50 and noticed that the wire connector for the cord only uses 4 of the 6 wire connector while the detector itself has a total of 6 wire connectors that can be connected.
Wire connector meaning like the image below has 4 connectors...
Anyway, I wanted to know what the other 2 wire connector might be used for... Since the direct cord I purchased only uses 4 of the 6.
Finally, I have read somewhere about a smart cord from Escort that has a mute button and a separate led that flashes when the detector is set of...does anyone have a DIY instructions on creating your own smart cord? I'd just be interested in how to add a separate led to flash for my direct cord.
