This accessory offers two very useful features, making it the ultimate in convenience. First of all it allows you to hard wire your Bel or Escort radar detector (STI XR, Magnum, Driver, Redline, Max or Passport 9500IXi) directly into your car, eliminating the need for a cigarette lighter plug.
Secondly, it offers the very popular SmartCord MuteDisplay module. This module can be mounted anywhere inside your car and provides a power-on indicator, an alert lamp that warns you of radar and laser, and a convenient mute button! It's the perfect addition for any car when reaching the detector's mute button on the windshield is a stretch. Also, for discreet night driving, put your Beltronics detector in the dark mode, and use the SmartCord MuteDisplay for visual alerts. Other drivers won't know you have a detector.
This model of the Direct Wire SmartCord features a power light.
Professional installation is recommended.
