Let me know if you have any questions!

I'm not very savvy at this type of stuff. Can someone help me with where to run the chord to keep it out of the footwell? Thanks.

How did you "actually modified the Bel's cig lighter plug-in adaptor", what did you do to the adapter? I have a extra old cord from the same radar but also have the 9500ix.
