  6. Can the Escort be mounted above the rearview mirror?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I've seen the Escort detector mounted below the mirror with the "Z" mount. I seem to recall a mention of mounting it above the rearview mirror. How is this done and doesn't the window tinting decrease sensitivity? I'd love to mount it above if possible but also want it to work well. I got...

  17. Cordless radar detector (Escort Solo 2)

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    I absolutely cannot handle anything else w/a cord -- I have sometimes 2 phones, plus Garmin plugged in to a car at once. Is a cordless detector worth getting? Or is the difference in performance enough to say corded or bust?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I have a Passport Escort 8500 X50 that I would like to hardwire. My question is rather or not if I need to buy the Passport Hardwire kit or can I just use a regular telephone plug? If I can use a regular telephone line, do I need to run a fuse and which wires goes where?
