Where do I mount my radar detector?


The unit comes with a windshield mount - assemble the bracket ( if needed) and secure to a location on the windshield. Make sure its above the wipers and not behind any metal. Once installed, make sure that the radar detector is LEVEL WITH THE ROAD! This may require bending the bracket to level the unit. (Note: remove detector while adjusting the bracket).

I need to find a 12 volt switched line in the dashboard of a 2011 town and country


Usually your cigarette lighter is what is used to power the radar detector. If you want to add a 12 volt power port then you will need a multitester and check for a hot fuse on your fuse box that is not hot when the ignition is off, and wire your 12 volt power source into that.

I have an Whistler XTR radar detector, I cannot get power to the unit from the power outlet on a BMW 528 I just bought, the unit worked on my Lexus. Do I need a special cord?


No special cord is required. Does the lighter socket in the BMW power other 12 volt devices? If so, then check the fuse in the radar detectors power cord plug. If not, then check the BMW's lighter socket fuse to make sure that is working properly.

A friend gave me a whistler 35r and I can not get it to turn on, it has now plug in power source so I assume it takes batteries but I can not open it, so i guess im asking how to change the batteries. and...


That model is not battery powered. It requires a 12 volt power cord connected to your lighter socket to operate. You can purchase a power cord at any electronic parts store or from Whistler by calling 800-531-0004.

Calibrating my cobra radar detector


I dont know of any radar detectors that need to be calibrated. To calibrate the radar, you would need a source of RF energy like a radar gun and a ton of specialized equipment.
Just turn it on, place it up high enough on the windshield or dash so that it has a clear "view" of the road. Suction mounts on windshields get the detector higher and it offers you a better view and an earlier warning as it can "see" over the hill better.

Laser goes off when i am driving in area were there is no buildings or police cars also goes to k ban what is this problem


A lot of the time this is caused by a somewhat flaky power connection to the radar detector, or may be caused by excessive electrical system noise created by your car's alternator. The cigarette lighter socket itself my be the problem due to oxidation within the socket. Do you get false laser alerts when you rev your car's engine to certain RPM's? Do you get either laser or radar falses if you jiggle the radar detector's power cord or slightly move it plug in the cigarette lighter socket? If yes, to either, then installing a hardwire power kit may solve the problem. Jump over to radardetector.net and describe the problems you are having with your radar detector. Most likely they will help you to track down the source of the problem.
