I finished installing the Valentine1 radar detector into the van today. The hardest part was finding a spot to ground the negative wire in the cramped area under the dash. These are the steps I followed.... First, for power I like using a piggyback fuse connector like the one pictured below. It's made by the Littelfuse Company and it's called Add-a-Circuit. Because I simply took out the hard-wire kit that I was using in the Subaru, everything was all set to go. This allows me to connect into power without having to splice into any wires. I like being able to remove it easily. The driver's side fuse panel is fairly compact and it was easy to fish the wire behind the panel so that it would look nice and clean: DO NOT DO WHAT I DID IN THE PICTURE ABOVE and put the radar detector with the RADIO (#5), or the INTR LIGHT (#6), or the BACK UP (#7), or the DAY LIGHT (#3). I tried each one of those locations, looking for a spot that would give me switched power. Surprisingly, each o

"This year, a new federal law kicks in that stretches out Daylight Saving Time (DST) by a full month. DST
now starts on the second Sunday in March and ends the first Sunday in November. For this year, it means
the clocks spring forward at 2:00 a.m. on March 11th, and fall back at the same time on November 4th.
(Last year, the clocks sprang forward on April 2nd, and fell back on October 29th.)
In navigation systems that allow for DST, this poses a problem—the system doesn’t know about the new
DST schedule. We’re working on a software patch to correct for this new schedule, but until it’s available,
here’s what you can do when the clocks spring forward:
1. Go to the appropriate screen that’s used for adjusting the clock.
• If the screen has a setting for DST, turn off that setting and go to step 2.
• If the screen doesn’t have a setting for DST, go to step 2.
2. Set the clock to the correct time if needed."
