Hardwire Radar?? - 2014+ SRT/WK2

Well, no great shots of the mount or the mirror tap but you get the idea, it hangs front and center underneath the mirror.

I should add that the black hair tie wrapped around the V1 has nothing to do with blendmount. I choose to run the V1 like that on the valentine mount because it's very firm in place. No moving around whatsoever.

Also, in case anyone is wondering, V1's latest software does not false on K band due to the GC's blind spot monitoring system. The older ones do, but not their newest.

Do you have a head on photo of the V1 with the blend mount? Im just curious how low it hangs below the mirror and if you think its distracting/blocks your view. After driving with it there, would you rather it be mounted higher, maybe above the mirror?

BTW, the Valentine SAVVY is not recommended for our Jeeps. It doesn't switch off correctly and will drain your battery.

I've had mine in for over a year with zero issues.....

Re: Hardwire Radar?? - 2014+ SRT/WK2

Here are some more pics...let me know if you have any questions. I did not remove the mirror...only the upper and lower plastic pieces surrounding the mirror. Then unplug the black connector and plug the red/black cables of your cable into the bottom right of the back of the connector (second pic; red is bottom right, black is next to it to the left...when looking at the back of the connector)

Forgot to mention...this is where I put it...perfect spot for the Redline IMO. No loss or range/visibility/functionality, difficult to differentiate from the mirror from outside the vehicle and does not rattle/hit the mirror during spirited driving

Re: Hardwire Radar?? - 2014+ SRT/WK2

Just got a Passport Max 360...looking forward to comparing it to the Redline on my road trip Tuesday...I am amazed at the features it has, although it is 25% bigger than the Redline...so far my only "complaint" will report back
