I am using an older escort 8500 x50. Will someone be kind enough to explain what this BSM is, please and thanks.
Wasn't sure either but just Googled "BSM Radar"

Bought this from this deal. Arrived in good time. Didn't really read the manual so it kept chirping all over the turnpike. The suction cups aren't great and it fell off my windshield but, even in the cup holder of my car, it made a loud, repeated "whoop" noise before I even saw a cop with someone pulled over down the road from me.

Nobody uses radar anymore. What you want is laser detection.

What do u use the GPS for on radar? Been a while I have not used one even though I have a old escort.. Just been using Waze for cop tips last few years.. How does it work with false alarms?
The GPS is useful for the semi-stationary speed alert signs (and similar devices) often pulled on trailers into areas where residents have complaints about speeders. Once your radar detector alerts on one of this devices, you identify it as such. The detector stores the GPS coordinates and specific frequency of the radar xmitter so that when you're in the area again it will not alert - as long as the new info matches what's in the database.

Looks like this radar is back on sale again. I got it a few weeks ago from buy dig for also $130. Arrived super fast and the radar is high quality. I disable the X bands and also used the GPS function to disable places I know I get false alerts. Way better than the old cobra radar I had laying around.

Where do people mount this? I'd prefer to not have it hang from the mirror, that's a spot I reserved for dashcam. But where else? What's a good solution
I use the metal mount that comes with it (I have a Bell, I assume they all come with a simple metal mount)
I remove the suction cups and replace them with the 3-M "velcro" like things. I'm talking the stuff with the interlocking balls. It is far superior to velcro.and the adhesive on the back is super. Stick one piece to the mount and the other to the windshield, as high as possible, maybe to the right of the mirror but clear of the sun visor in the down position.

Then I get power if I can from the map light or sun roof control. Hopefully a circuit that is powered only when the ignition is ON, not just accessory and on.

If I can't get that power from there I go to the fuse box and find a fuse that is powered that way. I use an old telephone wire....what will we do when phones are obsolete...., cut the end off and connect one wire to the fuse and the other to some screw nearby. You have to check the plus and minus pins in the power cable that came with it so you know which wire goes to the fuse and which to the ground screw.
I then dress the wire along the door frame up to the dashboard, along the left edge of the windshield then across the top of the windshield to the detector. Usually I can stuff the wire between the windshield and the cowling.

To attach to the fuse, always on the "downstream" side of the fuse so it is protected, I solder a piece of solid wire to the telephone wire. I use #30 wire or one strand from a heavier gauge stranded wire. I bend a "V" at the end of the wire, pullout the fuse, drape the V over the end of the fuse and shove it back in place.

Hopefully, with the detector hidden high up on the windshield, maybe on the far side of the mirror, with the wire hidden, if I get pulled over and the officer doesn't see the detector I might get a break verses blatantly displaying the detector.

Totally recommend... I've used this detector for about a year in Indiana and KY and it has definitely saved me a few tickets! Picks up radar at least a mile or more away, and does not go off needlessly at the grocery or when a Mercedes passes me. Took it on vacation and it definitely flagged some red light cameras. Overall very solid!!

I have an R1 and love it, but to those wanting to hardwire - 1st try tucking the included wire up under your headliner and down the 'A' pillar to your outlet (its really long uncoiled). I was able to do this on a bmw 3 series and a full size gm truck thus needing only 1 detector. The mute button on the original cord is a nice feature if you dont want to lock out K band...

I thought I'd offer my opinion. I have both the DFR7 and the R3. I bought the R3 first and later the DFR7 for my girlfriend's car. My only real complaint of the DFR7 is that it has a more annoying/shrill/harsh beep tone for K band. I find myself hitting mute quickly to shut it up. The R3 set on the default tones does not bother me in the slightest. The overall speaker quality is much better in the R3. The DFR7 also looks and feels more cheaply made than the R3, but I expected that. The extra features of the R3 like the ability to change the tones and the advanced mode make it a better buy in my opinion. In hindsight, I wish I had bought another of the R3 instead.

You being defensive and trying to justify your new $130 waste of cash gives me the giggles.
