    Only took me about 30 min to install out of the box. Mount the detector high, dim the display to help stealth your detector. This is easy to see right with the gages, helps keep your eyes on the road. Plus it just looks cool.

    This is pretty straightforward... and is a decent kit. Add power and ground, route your wiring, and plug your detector in.

    I want to make just a couple things clear with this review.

    This DOES work on either Escort or Beltronics detectors (I'm using it with my Bel V955). I wasn't 100% sure it would work, but I preferred the blue LED, so I chanced it.

    This is more than just the regular direct wire kit. It has the functionality of the plug in smart cord that's included with most detectors.

    This is a terrific idea, but I find issues with it's execution.

    The module that displays alerts and has the mute button is unnecessarily large. This makes it tougher to find a place to mount, and uglier once mounted. There is also no way to flush mount it into an interior panel.

    They could really take a lesson from some other automotive companies in this respect. A lot of people, myself included, are very particular about the neatness and factory-installed appearance of their aftermarket accessories. With this kit, there just isn't any good way to keep that appearance.

    It is for these oversights that I only give it 3 stars. It seems to function perfectly, and is well constructed.

            Easy to mute. Love the way it is concealed in my Tundra. Also, the LED indicator flashes with alerts so when listening to loud music you can still be notified.
