A radar detector is best mounted as high up in the vehicle as possible so that the detector has a good range of radar detection. The most common and the standard location for mounting the radar detector would be on the front windshield of the vehicle, near or around the center of the rearview mirror.
What is the difference between city and highway mode on a radar detector?
The level of sensitivity affects the type of signals the radar detector will detect and alert you to. City Mode is on the low end of the sensitivity scale, Highway Mode on the high end. Highway Mode sets your radar detector to full sensitivity for maximum range of detection while on the road.
Why are there wires going to my rear view mirror?
The glass automatically dims (darkens) at night to reduce dazzle from the headlights of following cars. The connection is for operation of that feature.
How do police know you have a radar detector?
When a car that is using a radar detector passes through an area covered by radar guns, the radar guns will almost certainly be able to notice the radar detector. So cops are definitely going to be able to tell if you are using a radar detector.
