    I just finished installing my v-1 stealth display in my gauge cluster

    It was actually super easy to do, the mpg gauge literally unclips right out of the back of the cluster I should have taken pictures of the install but I was too focused to think about it lol.

    Anyway i'm very happy with the result, I added a switch for the mode toggle and mute in front of my shifter next to my hardwired garage door opened

    Pretty clean. I have my remote display in my ashtray so I can cover it when not in use.

    I too have my display in my ashtray, and for exactly the same reason as Mr. Schlossman.

    Thats pretty cool this is what did with mine for the time being, i like seeng the display better on the radar detector itself but i dont want to reach over the dash to mute it all the time so heres how it sists for now. And a little rage demonstration also:

    Obviously it works in that position, however, (just fyi in case you may not be aware), optimal positioning for maximum radar detection ability/performance should be as high as possible while still keeping the detector positioned so it has an unobstructed sight-line to the rear - perhaps less critical in-town, but might be worth considering for highway trips. On a different topic, it bears repeating - leaving any electronic items in view (or evidence of same) such as high-end radar detectors or gps units while you're away from your car is risking a break-in. When parking, I always try stash anything completely out of sight, and without being observed (hopefully) by any would-be smash-n-grab thieves. Leaving the passenger compartment clean and empty gives would-be thieves little reason to think there is anything in the car worth stealing.

    Oh yeah since that video i have moved the V1 up to the top of the windshield and it REALLY did make a difference with range and especially from the rear. I pass a spot everyday where it bleeps and when i koved it up it started bleeping from farther away.
