I will be hardwiring my radar detector this weekend, and will be using the following that I purchased from ebay:

Font Technology Advertising Electronic device


To the right of the steering wheel of my 2011 CRV, there is that unused button (similar to the VSA button on the left) that I would like to install the push button that is used to mute the radar detector. How hard is it to get that piece off? I am assuming there is enough room back there to install the button? I've searched these forums a bunch and tried to look for a guide on removing that, but haven't had any luck. I've also checked various installation manuals for accessories on handa-accessories.com but no luck. Ebay has some fog light kits that puts the fog light button where that unused button is, but all the listings I found say no installation instructions included.

Thanks!

I'm glad a thread was already started here, but I'm surprised nobody responded. :)

I have a 2012 CR-V EX-L now, and I use a Escort Passport 9500ix with a Direct Wire SmartCord. Currently I have the SmartCord body velcroed to the left of the steering wheel.

I'd love to move it to one of the blank buttons (see image)...does anyone have a way to do this without making it look like a hack? Maybe Car Toys would have a solution...

Several companies make a mirror mount. I'm going to get one and use the sunglass holder to hold the smart cord. I'll tap into the courtesy lights for power.

That kit listed in the 1st post I used in my Del Sol. The lights were way too bright but fried out within 6 months. The mute button quit after 9-10 months.

Here is a picture of the set up in my Lude to my 9500i. Used the Ecsort kit with the mute button and 2 lights. Disassembled it and this is the result.
