    I've seen small one's that run off batteries if you don't want wire to mess with.

    Can you hear it beeps?. With all the wind and noises around me, I don't think I'll be able to hear it.

    Have the HD Escort with HD mounting. Works like a champ. The mounting has a 11/2" speaker. Has adjustable volume and has outlet for earpiece. You can dim lights, has all radar bands. It is detachable, so when you park, you can take it with you. Had the stealer install the unit as an option on my streetglide. Loving it when you go faaassssst.

    As the warning beeps come through a speaker, not from the unit, it is so loud that when in traffic, other people are looking at you. I run true duals with monster ovals.

    I wish some one would tell the Va. State Police about that...they have radar detector detectors...and regularly write tickets for having one..........it is not about speeding but about collecting more $$$$$
