Not stating that volvo drivers go over the speed limit, I was wondering if anyone installed a radar detector in their XC90 and which brand/model do you have?<p>I was thinking of purchasing one (between the passport or valentine one) for my trip to Canada.<p>

Re: (dugums)

How / where did you install the V1?<p>It's larger than the passport. Do you recommend the concealed display?

Re: (jakofall)

It's a little bigger... Not much anymore... I got a new one a couple months ago, and the case has shrunk considerably...<p>Concealed mount would only seem to be useful if using the detector illegally... Otherwise, I would skip it...<p>I have a hardwire kit, which is nice... I just use the suction cups for mounting...

oh, I guess I was wrong. Either way, get the hardwire kit. Dont ruin the int. by having a giant telephone cord hanging down. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>And go with the v1 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Cheers <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
