    No XM here but I do hide the detector power cable. I run it up under the headliner and across to the A pillar. I then run it down the A pillar to the fuse box. All of it is unseen..

    No the wires that came with the detector had more than enough length. I did both the Z (whistler) and the Lincoln (Valentine One) the same way. Both came with wires long enough to run it that way.

    I'll take one at lunch today. I routed the wires up and into the middle air vent and clipped the radio mount onto the vent fins. Been working for 2+ yrs now. No wires in the way.

    On my old trans am i ran my power straight to my rear view mirror getting direct power from the lights. All the lights still worked fine and never blew a fuse. I will be doing the same thing to my Camaro this summer!
