I want to install an Escort Radar detector in my P85, but Tesla reps are strongly discouraging me from "Hard Wiring" it. Option number 2 is to use the cigarette lighter to power it...but that means having that coiled cable running from the plug to the dash...right in front of the touch screen. I considered going from a 12V DC powered unit to a AA battery unit...but the low power greatly lessens the ability of the unit to preform at it's best.
Has anyone installed a detector and, if so, do you have any comments?
