Thanks for the T-Tap connector info Umberto....and for the great tutorial. The connectors are now on order and i took your advice regarding using the smaller gauge. Much appreciated!

valentine 1 has VG2 technology making it invisible to detector devices. I would detect the escorts and the silver bullet with my V1.

bringing back on old thread here but I finally bought my wife a escort redline and hardwired it last week. Had an old escort 8500x50 that I put in for a week before replacing it with the redline. When I hardwired it, the 8500 worked fine turning on and off, but with the redline, I get a low voltage warning and it powers down as soon as the engine is turned off. So when I start the car back up, I have to manually turn the RL back on. anyone else experience a "low Voltage" message? I checked the ground and wire connections, and they are both fine. 2010 sport btw

got fed up so i just ran a telephone wire from the detector all the way to the back of the truck to the 12v in the trunk. Coupled it with the smart cord and works great now with a 13v reading. I ran the cord down the drivers side pillar and through the plastic foot guard/carpet near the doors. Can't see the cord at all yay!

I had a radar detector hard wired to my 2008 RRS the same way and didn't have any issues regarding low voltage. I haven't tried the same on my new RRS but i will try to wire it this week sometime and will report back.

Hi dkim12 - I was able to hardwire mine today and didn't have any low voltage problems. Just wanted to report back my experience. I know u already wired it to the power outlet in the boot but if you are thinking of wiring it back to umbertob's way, I'm assuming the connection to the hot wire (white and green) might be the issue. I actually cut the plastic covering on the wire before using the t-taps (14/16gauge) for a better connection. Also check your ground connection as well.

thank you for the reply! I'll keep it the way for now but I'll try cutting the plastic next time if I decided to redo it yet again. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out so far. thanks again
