That's for a V1, but the steps are the same except the X50 just clamps onto the power lead directly. You'll see when you get to Steps 6 and 7.

It has an unobstructed view, it's easy to see and hear, and a cop poking his head in the car probably won't notice it. The smartcord button sticks out of the console just by my right knee, so I can tap it with my knee if it's making noise.

Sorry for so many quotes, i just wanted to get your attention.

Is this the method that you recommend:
Look at post #9.

And do i use this kit:
Will i need a fusetap for this kit or will the fusetap be included with the power section.

From what ive learned, im planning on buying that DirectWire kit (for the Mute button), running the telephone wire from the radar detector, into the headliner, into the A-pilar, into the fuse-box?

And mounting it above/left of the RVM seems to be the optimal location, yes or no?
