Anybody here with extensive experience in radar detectors? Recently purchased a Uniden R1 and I've been wating to hardwire it to my car. I got zero experience on this area but I wanted to do it myself. Tried researching for a tutorial for R1 but just found some general hardwiring instructions. According to this article, I only need Hardwire cable, T-Tap and Add-a-Circuit kit. The instructions seem pretty legit but I wanted thoughts from someone here who actually tried it.

Hope you can share the steps with me. Thanks!

I've used them starting with one I built from scratch in the late 60s, but I've always assumed you bought a total installation (Expensive) or a plug into a 12V source or a totally portable battery operated one.

First of all, building a radar detector from scratch is pretty awesome!

By total installation you mean? (Sorry, not familiar with it).
Yes, I can always plug it.

Escort Max Ci 360 Radar Detector, $3,500 + cost of installation which varies with vehicle. This type of detector is commonly called "Remote" since it's not visible.

Can't see the C & D drive in disk management! Please help.
Disk manager can't locate C & D drive, only DVD/CD drive. Win Explorer shows both drives are OK. I think it is possibly infected with a virus as i also encountered a few Blue Screen of Deaths (BSOD). I wanted to do a full reformat, but could not do so as i can't locate my C & D drives. The...
