The .040" and I used the 10" cord.

I should have taken a pic when it was apart but when you remove the plastic piece underneath where the yellow arrow indicates is a round sensor. The plug to it has a black and blue wire. Remove the plug from the sensor (pulls out) and slide the red connector into the blue wire, black to black. They slide in back of the connector where the wires enter if that makes sense.

Looks like a clean mount. I would like to go this route but seems like the detector would be a bit low and in my line of sight. I'm 6'3" and dont want it right in my face. Thinking of using the wire tap kit and mounting it up higher maybe on the passenger visor. Haven't had a radar detector since the 90s but the Stelvio seems to want to speed more than my Ram or Jeep ever did.

I'm 6'3" as well and it's not an issue.

For those that might be purchasing / installing a radar detector soon, the Uniden R7 (which adds directional arrows and a few other features as compared with the R3) is scheduled to be released in the next month or so.

silly question: Is it a permanent mount or can you take it off easily? I dont want to give anyone an excuse to break into the car just to grab it

Temp. You can take off your detector whenever you want.

Ok. I can’t figure out what the round sensor is. I just keep seeing the big wire bundle. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I'm not sure exactly what the round sensor is. It could be lane detection and/or a feature your car does not have. It's just a power source of which there are several under the mirror housing. Using a volt meter would be the best way to determine a power source as they are not always red wired.


This link for install on the Guilia shows the round sensor...

And after taking another look at your pics it looks like you have not completely removed the mirror housing from the windshield which you need to do to access that sensor.

Yep,

I figured that out f=after reading the forums. I dropped the whole thing and found wha I believe to be the "round"sensor. I think it is a sensor that is fused in to the larger trim piece with a small 3 wire connector. I used the tap connectors that came with the cord ordered from bled mounts, the black cord broke so I need to get another first or find a larger wire to tap off of.

Thank you for your help!
