I've got the 8500 with the smart cord. Do i just cut the cord? Seems like a waste cuz its got the two indicators and the mute button. Or do i buy a "hardwire kit" and if so where can i find one? thanks.
No!!! dont cut it. Get the hardwire kit from escort. it has a seperate remote/mute. . Search for the V1 hardwire DIY on this site. you can follow those directions pretty well to do the 8500. I have mine hardwired just to the right of the rearview mirror. feel free to PM if you run into a problem and i will try to help.
