Just got my first radar detector! I also got my first truck recently, so I was searching for toys, and when i found a good price on an 8500 x50 I jumped on it. I bought the super cup and im really liking it and also the hardwiring smartcord from car toys but have yet to install it, but i have a few questions about overall usage maybe someone can help me with
a) I know its a debate, but is there really much of a difference in high-low placement? Mine is currently low, but im thinking since im in a good sized truck, thats about normal height - does that logic follow?
b) if yours is hardwired in, what are your practices with taking it off the windshield when you park (because of heat/theft/etc) - is that a PITA?? Also, I would love to see your set up.
- Also, if you look at the picture below, im thinking of velcro-ing it to my dash at kind of driver side ish of the radio, what do you think about that?
c) Driving around town - North Dallas suburb - im picking up K band from stores and Ka from LEOs driving around - yet sometimes I pass a LEO and pick up nothing, is it typical that some cops would drive around with it staying on and others not?
Also, any tips for a new user would be awesome. For right now, im sticking with the factory settings, untill I find (or am suggested) settings that may be more useful.
