My name is Chris and I have already found this forum to be quite helpful. I have had a Escort 8500 X50 Red in my 2007 Passat for a year, love it. Then yesterday I bought a Valentine One for my new F250 (for the long trips). Just wanted to see how to hardwire it and get the most out of it. And yes, I know that NJ uses the X-band, I see that everyday going down the parkway.
I look forward to contributing, and sharing thoughts. Take it easy!
