All around Radar/Laser Detector

A Radar detector with remote sensors
  [vote for,

The idea is to make the radar detector less obvious. Have the head unit of the system installed in the dash of the car. Make it look like an equalizer for the stereo. Then have 2-6 sensors installed on the exterior of the vehicle. Behind the grill and inside head/tail/marker lights would be good. The system could also give a direction from where the signal was coming from, so you would know where to look.

       Some Ferraris are built with a radar detector integrated with the rearview mirror. Directional detectors are also baked. Not very usefull though, by the time a cop came up behind, it's all ready too late.

       These are already produced, but they cost a lot more than a regular unit.

       I own the Whistler 3450 (see link) and it seems to work well. Can't find it today but there's a Car and Driver shootout that covers the different 'Remote Installed' models. This one was the cheapest remote install detector available when I bought it.   

       It takes a fair amount of work to install one of these but you end up with a hidden detector. I like that I don't have to worry about thieves or cops seeing my detector.
