    Agreed. All speed measuring devices are supposed to confirm visual estimates.

    I have been, on a number of occasions, the beneficiary of a rabbit in front of me. I have caught laser reflections or pass through from cars in front of me. In the tunnels in Boston, laser has bounced off the wall tiles and my V1 has picked it up.

    On another occasion, a MA State Trooper hit me with laser on a blind curve. Since I knew exactly where and when he nabbed me, this served as part of my cross-examination of the officer. However, like how it has happened on all 3 cases that have gotten to the trial stage, the officer did not show and my case was dismissed.

    Anyone who says laser detectors are useless is either a liar or ignorant of the facts...

    Tried and tried to find a way to do it in my '12 Coupe, but with the Rainsense wipers, none of the previous threads on how to connect it apply. I ended up just getting a long black power cord and running it up under the headliner edge, down the A pillar and along the bottom passenger door moulding to the rear power accessory at the rear of the console. It actually turned out quite nice. I agree, the '11 Vette is much easier!

    For my 2012 There is a red wire between a green and green/white wires. This is +12
    volts switched by ignition on.

    The black/white wire is a ground. Zip tie the cord to the wiring harness
    for strain relief and tuck it under the cover.

    Simple install.

    How about for a 2009? I haven't gotten around to wiring my V1 yet.

    Yup,that is how my V1 is wired. did it once and apparently didn't get a good connection. So exposed the wire and with a little solder it is truly hard wired.

    My '12 Coupe is wired just like DRL650 says - works great - detector stays on for a few min after you shut the car off, but it does go off eventually.

    Is this the same for the 2013s? If I go through with purchase, I'll be doing a direct switch in the dealer's parking lot. The operation in my 2009 took literally 60 seconds.

    Re: 2012 Which Wire to use for invisicord Radar Detector?

    I finally hardwired my V1 to my new wagon.

    For my 2013, there is a PINK powered cable and a black/white ground.

    Also, the regular Invisicord blades are simply too wide to fit. I bought another cord with narrow pins and I just installed it yesterday. It's from an outfit that sells on eBay, Safe-n-Sound, and it cost $11.50 shipped. It comes with a fuse attached, unlike the Invisicord, with which you have to pay $5 extra for that. Fits great and now I'm all set up. LINK

    So if anyone wants my old Invisicord for their older (2009-10) V, I'm willing to sell.

    Re: 2012 Which Wire to use for invisicord Radar Detector?

    I installed blendmount and invisicord myself in my 09 and 11. On the 12 I had it at the dealer so I had them do it. The lead comes out of the harness and is easily accessible.Don't know where or how it is connected.

    I have had great experiences with my dealer so I did not hesitate to let them do it. Since I had basically lucked into it twice already, I didn't want to push my luck.
