Advice Needed - Dash Shelf, Radar Detector, 12V Power Outlet
I am planning a trip, long distance, and need some advice. I would like a radar detector setup for my 2005 DL650, so far this is what I came up with.
Pat Walsh dash shelf, Valentine 1 radar detector, and weather tight 12V outlet from Wal Mart. I was planning to drill a hole in one of the black closeout panels either side of the instrument cluster for the 12V outlet. Mount the dash shelf, locate the radar unit.
I want the radar unit to be easily removeable (I.E. not hard wired / hard mounted) because I want to use it in the car and be able to lock it in the bags.
Dash shelf needs to be big enough for the Val1, and I think there are a couple dash shelf designs out there. What's best for radar detector mounting?
Any advice on the dash shelf, radar use, and 12V outlet would be greatly appreciated.
