Functions fine, but be prepared to buy a fuse tap for auto on and off with your car ignition

It’s a decent hardwire Kit. It’s cheaply made, but it doesn’t cost much either. It does the job just fine. It does suck that it didn’t come with a fuse box tap... you either have to wedge it in between an existing fuse into the receiver, or wire it to your battery terminals.
I wanted to use a fuse in my Porsche that automatically turns on and off with my ignition, so I went the fuse route. Even after wedging the positive wire in between the radio fuse, the detector would stay on even with the key removed and the car locked.
I ended up having to buy a fuse tap from auto zone so that power was automatically turned on and off with my ignition. Kinda sucks this kit doesn’t come with one by default.
All that being said, I got it all connected, ran it in my overhead and side trim to cover the wire, and the end results look great and functional exactly how I wanted it to.
Just be prepared to buy a fuse tap separately if you want to set it up correctly using the fuse box. I’ve only had it installed for a week, so time will tell how long it will last. Fingers crossed!
Worked with my Cobra RAD450, the connection that goes into the detector power port sticks out much further than it needs to though.
