People just love the fact that the Whistler Cruisader radar detector can be mounted in a standard 2 1/16 inch gauge enclosure! Since this is the only detector on this market with this feature, we are always getting asked if the Cruisader will work in a car, as well as a motorcycle.
The answer is yes, you can use a Cruisader in a car, but there are a couple of things to watch out for.
The most frequent problem is the wire length. The wires attached to the radar antenna, the control panel, and the additional laser receiver are each 10 feet in length. This should be plenty for most vehicles, but is too short in some.
Another issue may be that the installation guide is written with a motorcycle installation in mind. It may help to refer to the Whistler Pro 3450 installation guide for tips on things to look for in a typical vehicle installation.
