I've been looking around at them for a while, wanting to get one as well. My tech teacher has gone through several so I'll get some reviews off him. As for wiring it they unit, they usually run off a 12volt cigarett lighter plug, so I was just going to go down to my local auto store and pick one up for 5 bucks and wire it to the battery, though a 10amp fuse. They also come with little window mounting harnesses, that are suction cups, but I was gunna drill a set of holes in my windscreen and bolt it on. It needs to be set as high as you can so it can pick up the signal. Most detectors cost less than my average ticket, $200, so its a wise investment in my book. Make sure you get just a detector, not a scrambler. Your allowed to have a detector in FL, but the scramblers are illegal... and easy to detects by the cops.
