Anyone Have Stealth One???

Does anyone have a Stealth One installed? I'm wondering how it interfaces with the radio. Does the radio have to be turned on? Do you get the normal radio display until there is a radar signal? Any experiences good or bad?

the only way ive iseen it is they put some lights over by your light controls (so nothing to do with the radio display) and then its hardwired into your car and radio..my friend has it in his m3 but he has never got it working...sick idea though.

Well here goes my brief review of stealth one. I just picked up my car a few hours ago and at first was a bit distressed. I only left the install instructions with the shop so it was up to me to configure it. On my ride home by accident I got it into setup mode and also by accident programmed it for a different series BMW. This totally sucked because it gave me no display whatsoever. I heard the radar beep but I had no visual aid, which really sucked. I was ready to drop my car back off and pray that the installer could figure it out because nowhere in the instructions did it talk about fixing this. Well after tormenting myself all though out my dinner I decided to check out their site again and saw that they had a forum. I looked under E46 and found that I wasnít the only fool who did this. Eric, the president of Jaric Design replied to a post about this with instruction was a bit involved and seemed like a joke having to push buttons 30 times but it worked and I was finally able to set it up properly. There are several different options as to the display, whether you want arrows or it to say FSR, you can enable muting by hitting the phone button, and adjust the sensitivity. The unit stays in whichever way you keep the radio, clock or radio id display. When the radar goes off the display immediately pops up to alert you which band and what direction it is coming from. Once the signal dies down, the radio display says stealth one then shows the radio id and in my case defaults back to the time. They also have you leave some of the phone cord wires loose and accessible for future software updates. Iím interested in seeing how they expect you to do the updates though. So far I am very satisfied with it. I am going to mess around with all the different types of configurations until I see which I like best. I was so impressed that I am now going to order one for my sisterís 330XI with Navi. If someone doesnít do it before me Iíll do a write up on the difference between the Navi one the non Navi one.

Something about the Stealth 1 fails to excite me. I mean, the damn V1 box still has to be mounted somewhere, and it seems that you're compromising the the already great V1 display by trying to cram the warnings onto the radio.

But it does keep you have having to mount a remote display somewhere. I see it as a choice of two things mounted that don't look right or with a Stealth One, you have one thing mounted that doesn't look right.

As long as the Valentine doesn't have remote laser detectors, then the V1 box is going to have to be there. But at least I can get rid of the seperate remote display.
