Where can I get detailed install guide for a stealth V1 install

I just got my stuff in from Valentine, and I'm looking for the detailed install that involves mounting the radar detector above the rear speaker box and mounting the remote display on the steering column.

Anyone know where I can find it, preferably with pics?

thanks

I really dont see the point of this. I have my V1 tucked up under the rearview mirror and wired it through the windscreen header. When I park somewhere top up, I just pull it down and lock it in the console.

I do wish there was a place for a permanent, stealth install, but the description in the attched link is hardly stealth, and in my opinion, looks horrible. I have considered installing the SRX for this reason, but the cost is prohibitive, and I'm not sold on it being as good or better than the V1.

When I had an E39 BMW 540i I installed the V1 up above the headliner in front of the sunroof. Obviously you lose laser that way, but in that car I had the Escort laser jammer installed and I loved that install. Used the Stealth One box to display the V1 alerts on either the MID in the console or the LCD in the gauge cluster. I would be very happy to have this option in the Porsche, but the question is where would you put it.

Just my $.02.
