JScott's trip post has me wanting to gear up for one. I've pretty much made up my mind to get the Escort Passport 8500 X50 so this isn't a post about the best detector to buy.
1) H.a.r.d. in-helmet display: I don't like jarring noises (most ppl would sleep right through my alarm clock) so this seems like a good alternative. And I know SportVue is crap. Anyone tried?
2) Radar Screamer: constantly going off in citymode? If I'm set up, I might as well run it while in the city too but I don't want to be riding a car alarm. I'm sure Automute helps though.
3) Cigarette lighter: is installing one the only way to easily share the X50 between car and bike? I read the manual but can't really decypher their power connector stuff.
