    Default Hiya Folks

    I've been a lurker here a couple time, but now I need the advice/help from the masses. I have a Escort 8500 that I've had for years in a Dodge truck and many, many rentals. Now I have just bought a 2009 Accord EX-L with the navigation system. I just bought the smart cord hardwire with remote. I also have bought a rearview mirror mount for it since I'm sick and tired of the darn suction cups failing me. However, my question is, where the heck do I mount the remote from the smart cord? The detector is within reach, but if I run it dark, I'd like to have the remote within easy reach. I'm not opposed to holes, but would like to keep them to a minimum and fairly well hidden (recessed hidey hole or some thing such). Any ideas?

    This is what you have to work with...

    Ok, lets try this again. First off, thanks for the welcome. Second, a little about me:

    I'm a HAM (KD0xxx, pm me if you're a ham and want to trade call signs). I have a yaesu 8900 that I run mobile (haven't installed in the Accord yet), and will soon have a IC7000 mobile and base. I've recently bought a 2008 Honda Accord, of which brought me to this forum. I've been running radar detectors since the late 80's, when I was burning up the highways between Lubbock and my hometown 120 miles away. I've had mostly Escorts ending with the previously mentioned 8500. I've ordered the Z-mount found at country joy crafts. Tonight I hid most of the leads from the Smart Cord in the headliner and pillar down to the fuse panel. I still don't know what I want to do with the led fob and mute button.

    If I can stay on the good side of the mods, maybe I can not only get some answers, but maybe add some too.
