i know i can wire it to a 12v ignition source but the jackass who owned the car before me already tapped into a bunch of wires to install gauges so to avoid more behind dash clutter i am wiring all of my new accessories to the battery to keep things clean.
my V1 is currently hardwired to my cars battery (optima redtop). because of this, it can be turned on at anytime regardless of whether the car is running. this isnt a big deal because i will just turn it off when i am not in my car but i dont want to have to worry about draining my battery in case i forget to do this.
so how long would a V1 have to be turned on to drain my battery? i know the LED's dont use much power but what about the alerts? say i forget to turn it off while at a shopping center and the V1 is picking up 6 bogeys and going off like crazy.
and even when the V1 isnt recieving any radar signals, isnt is still constantly scanning for radar?
