Hi, I'm new here. This forum is pretty cool.
My V1 and concealed display should be here next week. I heard of it many years ago and seems like V1 is still a very popular choice nowadays among premium RD. A few of my friends has one and they're very happy with it, so I know I will be happy with it too. I drive a lot of freeway and I read it's a good fit.
Now it comes to the decision-making part. How should I mount it and hard-wire it? I was looking into this mount because of the "no mounting" on windshield in CA. What is your opinion about it?
The Radar Mount for the Escort or Beltronics
I'm thinking of mounting it below the base of the mirror that goes on the windshield if I don't get that mount (at least for the time being to try the V1 out). My windshield has a pretty thick tint band, so that's the highest I can mount it. I read that you can now mount a GPS on the windshield, but is it true that I have the right to mount the RD on the windshield? If say a LEO is in my vicinity or in front/right behind me and see I have a RD with or without a concealed display, will I be ok?
For wiring, what are some simple way to hard-wire it? I talked to one of my friends yesterday, he said he just take power from the cigarette lighter and use any metal as ground. I read some of you guys use Invisicord, but there is nothing inside the mirror that gets power.
The last thing I can think of is what bands does CA use for the most part?
Sorry if this is too long and I hope I didn't ask too many question. Enjoy your V1. Thanks
