I purchased the kit that you just plug into the mirror wires but I don't know which wires are the ones I use.There should be a kit on Ebay that allows you to do it via plug/play, I wouldn't splice any wires.
Another way to do this is with an add-a-circuit kit from autozone. You just need to figure out what type of fuses your car uses. (It's either ATM or ATO)
What kind of radar detector is it?
You're more than welcomed to check out my V1 setup in person. I don't have an IS-F yet, but the setup is very very stealthy and clean.
It's very easy. I highly recommend purchasing the V1 carry case and concealed display when your purchase your V1.subscribing....I'm probably going to get the V1 and would love to have it hardwired to the mirror so it would look nice and clean...
It's looks like this kit:Do you have a link to the kit?
It should plug right into the mirror without any further splicing.
Nice. That is the same wiring kit I got for my passport. I just can't figure it out!! Hopefully you have better luck and can enlighten me. I tried using a volt meter but the prongs were too big to fit into the plug so I couldn't find the positive.Well, I bought the Valentine1 lastnight...now I think i'm gonna buy this:
I'm pretty sure I could make a cord like this pretty easily but for the price it's not worth my time.
and more importantly I need to get a mount that attaches to the rearview mirror...blendmount makes a nice one but $79.99 or whatever is pretty expensive for what it is...if blendmount has some sort of promotion I may pick one up otherwise I'll find something else..
