I do have to ask why not the mirror option. Done right, it means you dont have to make any change at all, when you remove it, it's like it was never there, no cutting, no splicing. I've run my detector that way for over two years.

Its because I have a vinyl 6 inch strip across my windshield and I have a mute button . There is not a way to mount the mute button under the dash if I tie into the mirror. And most dont realize the vinyl and windshield wipers both distort the radars ability to pick up radar. It states it should be mounted unobstructed on windshield and not on dash where wipers block it . I want to mount it on the drivers a pillar just under the vinyl strip .Its more convenient to tie into that kick panel if possible.Thanks
