Where does the V1 unit itself mount? I'm assuming this is the concealed display you integrate into the mirror??

I love how flush it looks.

I'm pretty sure you can mount the V1 anywhere. Correct me if I'm wrong. You will need a long enough phone cord which shouldn't be a problem. In another thread he mentioned that the V1 was installed in the rear headrest for this install. It probably does not affect radar performance much, but sure as hell affects the laser warning. Some feel the laser warning is useless since if it goes off it's just an early warning that you'll be getting a ticket. I tend to disagree.


Cheers.

I would also like to know where you mount the unit itself.
Does it make a diff if you have a coupe or sedan?

The price depends on what you are looking to get done. Usually we charge $550 to modify the mirror and headrest.

I like the idea of the rear headrest but I know its not really something I would want to try to do myself.

Yes,

We need your V1 main unit, V1 Concealed display, rear view mirror and the headrest.

Turn around time is usually one week. We can also offer a spare mirror for those who uses their cars as the daily driver.

Each kit will come with the installation guide. It is not that hard to wire it.

What is the cost to modify all the parts?
Is the performance of the radar detector diminished since its in the rear headrest, front and rear performance?
Thanks.

The price is $550+ shipping to modify the rear view mirror and headrest (V1 main unit, V1 concealed display, rear view mirror, rear headrest - not included) .

The performance stays the same. I will post a video soon so you can see it for yourself.
