I tried calling and talking to an Escort rep yesterday, but that was absolutely useless so I'm hoping some forum members here might be able to help.
As background, I had a Bel STi-R in my previous car and loved it. But I owned that car and am now leasing and I'm not sure I want to be permanently mounting a setup I'll only have for three years - not to mention the "damage" I'll have to pay for once I turn it in.
That said, I love the stealth factor of the remote detector/installation and really don't want to go to the windshield mount that I'm putting on/taking down all the time. Not to mention that if I do get pulled over, I don't want the automatic ticket b/c the officer sees the detector.
With all that said, it looks like the SmartRadar option may be my best bet. But I still have the following questions:
1) Are there any remote setups in the Escort/Bel family that won't require permanent mounting?
2) Will the SmartRadar definitely fit behind the rear-view mirror and keep it (practically) out of site?
3) If I use the SmartRadar with an iPhone, can I still connect the phone to my car's hands-free Bluetooth?
Thanks in advance for any help/guidance. Much appreciated!!!
