I don't know if the interior rear view mirrors are the same for the 2007 body as it is for the 2005 body, but... If they are, then maybe more people will have input on this question.

Has anyone used the Invisicord to install a radar detector in their 2007?
If so, what plugs did you tap (pictures would be great!)?

Thanks!

p.s. I would post the link, but I am not sure how this forum is about non sponsor links.

Link is fine. I hardwired my 03' to the overhead console, I do not like how the V1 sits in the 07' so I have been using a Solo (cordless) until I figure out what I am going to do. :)

Have you tried the bracket that puts it below the mirror? I haven't used the Invisicord. It would probably be alot easier than sourcing power down by the steering column like in the pictures GM Geek showed for the headrest screens.

I have two different ones that mount below the mirror, not happy with either one, just blocks my vision too much, tried it there for a few days but drove me nuts. The other one fits up tighter, but looks like it was made in shop class. :(

I have the invisicord on my 07...but hell if I remember what wires I used...I think it was trial and error till it came on and shut off with the truck...but there is a combination...don't have the truck with me right now or I could find out but it is possible

I tried to hardwire mine on 07 Esc from the overhead console, but it was always on and did forget it on a lot of times, tried by checking with a voltmeter to see if there is any wire that is on with ignition only , but no luck.
So I used the Ignition positive connection under the steering wheel and traced it up till the rearview mirror.
if anybody finds any other solution please post.

When you do get back to your truck, if you would not mind looking, I would really appreciate it!

not sure what invisicord is, but I wired my detector (BEL) to overhead console, it goes off after 20 minutes from me shutting truck down. Turns back on automatic when starting truck. I use the suction cup mount and put it up real tight under mirror, out of the way and not noticable as looks part of the mirror and sensors up there.

I had used a hard mount in my vette and it looked like crap and was a big blob sitting out there. I changed it to the way I have the escalade

Anybody done this recently and remember what color wires to tap with the Invisicord? Looking to do an install of an Escort 9500ix on my brothers 2010 Escalade.

Thanks!
