With 12 feet in length, the Straight SmartCord gives you ample room for mounting your detector on the windshield even on deep dashboards. Without coiling, cord is easily tucked into upholstery, or mounted with hook and loop adhesive tape. In Red. Works with all current ESCORT windshield mounted detectors.
I wanted the ability to route my power cord around my dash so that I did not have the coiled cord draped across the stereo and temperature controls in my car while I was driving. This 12 foot long cord was just what I needed to get this done. Combined with some hook and loop type fasteners I was able to get the cord from the power source to the radar detector so that it was not in my way to control the things in my car while I drove.
But at the same time, the smart cord is still plugged into my cigarette lighter socket, which is right at my hand when I am shifting the gears. This way I can easily hit the mute button at any time where nobody outside my car would be able to see me do it. This is a real convenient item if you want to make your own custom install.
