Ok just received V1.... installed it but not hardwired as I have a few questions.
Do people normally use the hardwire kit that comes with the V1? I'm hesitant to pierce an existing wire in my car, as I'm not sure which one to use, and I'm wondering if this could have a negative effect on whatever that wire is running in addition to the V1. Do most people use an add-a-circuit kit that plugs into the fuse panel?
I used the visor mount, and as you can see in the pics, I had to stick a piece of foam above the visor to keep it level. Not a big deal, but probably not my permanent solution. I tried sticking it to the windshield, but it was super visible from the outside, whereas on the visor you really have to be looking for it.
I hid the wire even though its not hardwired yet. Just tucked it in across the top of the windshield and down the pillar. I took out the side panel as you can see in the pic to run it behind there, and there was a space between two panels where I could tuck it in above the glove box. The cord was just barely long enough for what I wanted to do, which was nice because I didn't have to figure out what to do with the extra wire.
I have a concealed display, and I'm still considering what I want to do with it. I might strip it down and mount it in the instrument cluster, although if I do that I would want to put a mute button elsewhere. I'm also considering trying to change the LEDs so that different bands are different colors- I know a few people can do this.
All in all very happy so far... time to take a drive.
