Mine is mounted above the rear view mirror and tapped into the mirror power. I posted pictures on the appropriate thread.
I am very happy with the mounting and it is out of any line of driving site and viewed by glancing above the mirror
Can this be reversible? I'm leasing the car and wonder if I could put it all back the correct way at turn-in time. I assume I'd have to remove the exposed part while it's serviced so they also don't notice. Just curious.I purchased the direct wiring cable from Escort and my installer did the rest. They wired it through the plastic housing attached to the window itself and tapped into the power from there.
No permanent modifications. The MirrorTap has knife edge micro probes which just insert into the back of any plug. There's only one large plug up there, and my multimeter probes were too large to get proper readings to determine which wire was which. But if I recall, I plugged into the black wire (ground) and the purple wire (ignition/switched power). Just insert the tiny little knife probes into the back of the plug to make contact with the metal connector holding the wire into the plug holes, and insure they're snug. Then pass the MirrorTap wire out under the edge of the roof liner, and re-install the plastic housing surrounding the mirror mounts. 5-10 minutes, if you're moving slowly for the first time.
