There is a module behind my rear bumper with the rear antenna. So, it is confirmed there are two seperate modules. They have had this for many years so I am certain they are not violating any of Mike's patents. Really, you are just paying extra for a second radar detector! That is why I don't believe it is patentable. I wonder if K40 has some sort of discrete unit patent. Would be possible since Escort doesn't offer it, yet offers rear lasar.....

A stealthier V1, Redline or STI (wait, that would be the STI-R) would be nice. But not required. I have ideas for how I would do it, like mount several separate radar and (miniature) laser "antenna" all around outside the vehicle. I don't design these things though. I only dream of the perfect detector, which doesn't, and probably never will, exist.
