So I'm new here and haven't gotten the blinders yet, but I finished hardwiring the V1 a few weeks ago.
V1 is hardwired to the power window fuse, allowing me to kill it by smacking the big power window lock button. I drive through VA a lot and having the detector nearly invisible from the outside (just below the tint strip) as well as being able to instantly kill it (to avoid radar detector-detectors) was a key for me.
Worked well...blew straight past a VA trooper running radar from the median and he didn't even flinch.
The blinder M25's are arriving soon. It's my goal to have them installed as cleanly as possible without degrading the performance. Also ordered a CR8APL8 since running no front plates in NY is pretty risky.
V1 on the top right, Remote display on the left
Remote display is wired through the vent and down to the fuse box below. Mute button is within easy reach.
Almost totally invisible from the outside. V1 still detects great behind the strip.
