Doc - making it go more quickly? I dont know what you mean... do you mean detect more quickly? If thats what you mean, then no. The only thing you can do is to make sure that the radar detector is placed in the optimal position. High up on the windshield without any obtruction and tinting.
You can hardwire the unit pretty easily. i had doubts myself because im not anexpert when it comes to electronics or fixing up cars.... im like level 1 beginner.
the smartcord will come with the mute button unit with a ground wire and a wire for the power, along with the phone cord thing that hooks to the actual unit. All you have to do is find a power source that turns on and off with the ignition and connect the powercord to that wire (and hook the ground wire to a grounded screw or bolt). We audi's have homelink (garage door opener on the visor) and so i simply opened the entire fuse box, found the fuse for it, connected the power wire to that wire (the smartcord kit will come with a lil splicer thing to make it incredibly easy and without risk) and then used a nearby screw to connect the ground wire. then i just picked a cool spot and installed the mute button...which required 2 seconds of drilling 3 holes and a lil glue. here.... ill post the whole write up to make it clear
Actually.. ill do it when i get home. the battery on this notebook is dead
