Where are y'all mounting your radar detectors?

I love how the S3 has a dedicated USB charger port which makes it easier to install a radar detector via the front 12v charger.

Nice spot, I like how you tucked away the cord.

I did it kinda crappy but it doesn't show. I just stuck the wire in the cracks of the dash and duck tapped it to a bar under the steering column. Very easy and I see no wires unless I really search under the foot well. However I have to stick radar on the dash since window mount will make turn to the left and not straight ahead.

Even though radar detectors can be good for safety, I find them to be pointless because they constantly beep and they are incredibly distracting.

Sometimes the beep reminds me to look around lol.

I find the beeps annoying, but that's just me. I just remember to look around when I'm turning onto another street.
