I bought an x50 last week and also and just hardwired so it looks nice and clean no cords. Theres the pics of it took me about 3hours because I had to run out and get a fuse tap but it was worth it.

It looks nice and I also always hardwire mine to a switch. I dont know how the laws are in florida but in wisconsin you can get pulled over for having it on the windshield. Not because of the detector but because of Obstructed Drivers Vision.

I dont think I'll have a problem with it on the windshield no one else I know has. As for a how-to later I can write a little something up later and maybe get a picture or two.

On my 06 RL (this can work with any 06 GM) There is a ground and a hot (when key is on) on the rear of the mirror for On*. It sits right under my mirror. I wired my detector to that so I don't even need a switch or anything. If you want I can post pictures and what wires you need to tap, but I don't know how many 06's there are interested.

I didnt wire mine to a switch, I used a fuse tap and put it over the windshield wiper fuse so when I turn the car on it comes on and when I turn it off it turns off. I considered mounting it higher but I would have had to run it up the a piller and the headliner because I dont have any power source closer.
