    My radar detector and H.A.R.D. System

    A member wanted me to post up my Radar Detector System.
    I use the H.A.R.D system.
    This is how it all works.
    I tapped into a keyed power supply...the rear/tail running light with the power supply wire I bought extra. No problems in 2.5 yrs. Power goes to the H.A.R.D transmitter and a supplied pig tail goes to the detector. When the detector goes off it is transmitted wirelessly to a receiver on the helmet. This lights up a red LED that I can set up just below my sight line. Don't even notice it until it lights up. At night I bend it over and down so it doesn't blind me.
    The detector is now 3 yrs old. It is an Escort Passport Max. GPS model. This means that it learns where false signals are. Say you pass a cell tower and it goes off. You canmanually delete that location or it does it automatically after the 3rd time. I put it in my wife's car since she is always running kids around. That way it learned many of the false signals. Now it is almost silent around town. When it goes off I trust it. Even when she or I go on cross country trips it is transferred to the car so it can learn. It can do stuff with the smart phones too but I don't care about that. I usually only do 5 over anymore...but on the BB it is so easy to slip higher. It warns me way early too and helps me be more aware of my speed.
    I am sure there has been upgrades in the last 3 years.
    I bought the mount, extra power source wires, Holder, detector, H.A.R.D system all of it at the Chicago MC show.
    Adaptive mounts don't hold the detector in good enough so I use some strong rubber bands to ensure it stays in place. The mount and holder gets it to just above the dash height. They told me to think about getting some outdoor/marine velcro and use that on the Mount platform and the detector itself but that didn't get it quite high enough.

    Legalspeeding.com
    And Adaptive.
    Adaptive sells a MC detector that is waterproof. Didn't get it as the passport is better in some regards and I don't speed in the rain. I just dismount the detector in about 30 seconds and slip it in my inside pocket under my rain gear.
    Legalspeeding.com is an adaptive dealer and sells Adaptive stuff. I had to return an Adaptive phone Holder and had no problems. Very courteous and apologetic. Sent me another new plus some goodies.

    Hope this helps.

    Having trouble posting pics on Tapatalk. Will try to post on the sight later.

    the first frontal pic of the helmet is with the HARD LED as it should be. The second helmet is the HARD LED turned so you can see the LED. The last pic is just a view of the garage. The rear of the helmet is the wireless receiver. Side shot is my SENA20S it can do many things.

    That TA plate has her name on it. She has no right to complain. Plus a built-in mechanic. The garage is unfortunately only 20' wide by 24' deep. The rebel is #1 daughters. Wife's Jetta and my truck stays outside. The 99 suburban is the kid mobile now. #2 daughter is going to be riding her NC700X back down to Missouri in 90 degree heat and about 85% humidity. Told her to stop every hour and drink up in a a cool place.

    Are you asking how I mounted my radar detector? Adaptiv mount to the place where the cap but goes between the fork tubes on the top plate... I will take pictures later today when I get home.
