Just bought a Cobra iRad 950 and am testing it out right now on a trip. It requires the app on your phone, there are no buttons or display on the detector. That’s fine with me, I wanted it all to go through my phone anyway. And it was only $40.

Ram mount motorcycle handlebar stem ball repurposed onto my Barkbusters clamp, short arm and then the magnetic platform. Tapped into the power lead for the GPS unit which I’m not using, so it turns off and on with ignition.

I can take a picture tomorrow when it’s light out.

Welcome to the forum Did you search this forum? Several threads here. Always your first step before posting a question.

Check out Vortexradar.com for thoughtful reviews. Not moto specific.

I use a Valentine 1 (love the arrows) in my tankbag connected to the Valentine display and audio module that are mounted with Dual lock to my windscreen adjuster. Powered through a Rowe PDM. Wired from the audio module to a Senna SR10. Bluetooth to a helmet mounted Senna 20s. I also run xm radio to the SR10 and blue tooth to my helmet.

V1 mounted on my Swmotech tank bag. Used their god brackets modified it a little. Wired the V1 BT dongle inside the tank bag. Power to tank bag powers RD too. Dongle talks to V1 Driver app which sends alerts to Neotec integrated Sena 10U. It’s configurable for HFP (phone) or AD2P (?)(music) protocol. That helps to adjust sena priority. The later 20 series sends have more flexibility in this regard. But for standalone (not also using intercom or gps) the setup works well.

The/an alternative to this is to use Sena’s own BT transmitter. But you need the older one that will do HFP or BT and the use a hard wired connection from the radar detector to the audio innof Senas transmitter. For V1 that takes their audio adapter or a simple cable with a capacitor to carve out the audio.

LOL. I do see a typo in there. It's not god brackets, it's GPS brackets. Forum flaw, I can't edit it. The rest, if someone is really interested I'll elaborate on any point :)

Bottom line, it's a PITA to get a radar detector to talk to your helmet coms. Particularly if you use other audio sources like the Intercom, Music, a BlueTooth connected GPS (OR a Phone-Based GPS turn by turn audio), and a Radar detector. Use a ValentineOne Radar detector and it's another couple of steps harder.

Escort Passport 9500x. I wired the power directly to the bike under the top fairing. I also use marcparnes.com visual alert. Mounted the passport directly to the windshield just above the windshield adjuster. The visual alert is velcroed to the top of the passport. Works fantastic. Has saved me many times.

You guys are lucky to be able to use these! Here in Australia (other than in 1 state) it is totally illegal. In NSW if we are caught it's a $1600 fine and 9 points on your license (can only accrue 13 before you're suspended from driving). I find it amazing that the police can fine you for being privy to the use of a specific band of RF energy but I guess that's the price of "freedom"...

Legality differs per state and if you're like me you may also cross the border into Canada often, where it's also illegal.

I also run the V1, on a RAM ball mounted platform that sits next to my right side mirror, so it can detect forwards and backwards very accurately. It's held on with double sided velcro and a strap, and the power runs to a keyed bus under the seat (where the bluetooth module lives). I don't have audio in the helmet so sometimes I just use the arrows, and sometimes I'll wear ear buds plugged into the phone with the v1 app running. I can grab the unit and twist it off the mount and stick it into my jacket in about 3 seconds (ask me how I know?)

I'll try to take some pics later... if you don't know what you're looking at, it does blend in pretty well with the bike. Less discreet than the tank bag options though.

Is it illegal to own in Canada or just to use one? I'd heard of people just unplugging theirs when they crossed into a restrictive state or country, not sure how accurate that is though.

Ontario is the worst. Cops use a detector-detector and will confiscate and destroy a radar detector before your eyes if they catch you using one. Some people carry a throw-away (dummy) detector to hand over if they get caught. They are legal in British Columbia not sure about other provinces.

Legal in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan from what I’ve read.
