For those looking to hardwire their 9500ix, I used the invisicord and followed JBM's post here: http://www.f30post.com/forums/showth...light=detector
- no issues with the stock suction cups that come with the detector.
I would have rather used one of these: http://www.countryjoycrafts.com/escortmount.html
as I did in my previous car, but the space behind the F30 mirror is too small.
Only drawbacks with the location are:
1. It's not close to my line of sight as it would be if it were directly under the mirror.
2. Little clearance between detector and headliner, makes hitting the mute button more of an effort. But like ric124 said, the built-in GPS helps cut down on false alerts so I don't have to mute as often.
