    Anyone with HW4 tried a MirrorTap?

    I am thinking about trying @everydaychris ’s wonderfully documented Model X camera power tap for a radar detector. However, I’m concerned that HW4 power connections may have changed. Has anyone tried this on HW4? I’d rather not take the camera housing apart just to find out it won’t work.

    Uniden R3 radar detector

    i installed my uniden R3 on my model y last month. The volts showing on the radar is 15.4. When I run the same radar in my other cars, it says 13.5-14.4 volts. The radar works great in my non Tesla cars but when I put it model y, it doesn’t detect KA bands at all. Could it be that my model y is...

    Rear view mirror cables ripped off

    While I was installing a blendmount wire kit for a new radar detector, I accidentially ripped off the mirror, and the blue and white wires within. Any recommendations for reatatching the wires to the mirror itself??

    So I have this really weird one: I have a valentine one radar detector and the Tesla model Y I picked up this year tends to sit off the radar detectors laser detection all the time but only under certain circumstances that I’m still confused about. Does anyone know why the Tesla model Y is...

    Hardwiring Uniden R3

    I have been using the R3 for a few months and it has saved me on multiple occasions. It’s connected via the 12V cigarette outlet and has been sitting on one of the included suction cups on my windshield, but I decided today I want to clean it up a little bit since the wires are messy. I ordered...

    Hard wire radar detector

    1st I've read all the forums regarding hard wiring. So far I haven't seen any info on anyone being successful at hardwiring a radar detector. I saw that there's no "customer" 12V power available like in the M3. Just want to know if anyone's cracked the code on this. I want it wired so that it...

    Detailed How-To: Install a Valentine One radar detector behind the nosecone of a Model S

    This is a good solution for those who can't mount their Valentine One radar detector behind the windshield because the metal film in the windshield blocks the radar signals. Thanks to @CHG-ON for the idea. When I read about that setup, it was obvious that it was the best solution for this...

    Let's talk radar!

    Warning: Nerdy-nerdnerdynerd thread :cool: So what you're looking at is Tesla's forward radars; AP1, AP2.0 and AP2.5 respectively. (OK, not 100% precise but close enough.) Radar - Autopilot hardware 1 and 2.0 (Bosch) Tesla Model S and X with Autopilot hardware 1 and 2.0 have a Bosch...

    12V Switched Power in Rear (Radar Detector Install)

    Radar Detector Mount

    Hi All, I'm picking up my 2017 90D at the end of the week. Step 1 is to get my Escort Max 360 radar detector installed. Because I live in Nebraska, there is no need for a fancy Escort 9500ci because I rarely run into laser here. Normally I've just purchased the appropriate Blendmount for...

    Shhhhhh....Where should I install my radar detector?

    White Model S, 75D delivered in March 2017. I have read everything I can to figure out which detector to consider and where to put it. The answers are all over the map. Leaning toward Radenso SE mounted remotely only because the windshield has a coating? Is that coating story accurate...

    Radar detector options?

    I definitely don't want to have a cord hanging down to charge my radar detector, so I am wondering if anybody has successfully hardwired a radar detector to their rear-view mirror.

    any change to windshield coating?

    Does anyone know if newly manufactured cars still have the special coating that blocks radio signals? I am going over my options for a radar detector and tollway transponder mounting. I have no issue with a garage door opener mounted on the sun visor.
