Concealed radar detectors?

I'm looking into getting a concealed radar detector for my CLA and was wondering if anyone has one installed and can provide some info. I'm looking at the Escort Passport 9500ci, 8500ci as well as Beltronics and maybe Whistler. I want to know what you got, why you got it, and how you like it. I'll most likely have a professional install it for me. Thanks.

Ditto.

Please go to your cp and list your location. This is a multinational forum, and cars from Slovakia are not the same as Belgium or the US.

I would be careful with this as it`s known that some cops have detectors that detect radar detectors

My Wife was playing with the 'Command' on her 2014 CLA 4matic and discovered 'radar detector' in the menu options i.e. activate, deactivate. I have not yet confirmed but it appears that there may be one already installed.

I have never seen that on my command screen and I doubt the car comes with a built-in radar detector.

I apologize...



I had no idea that you were ‘all knowing’ and could tell me exactly what options are installed on my Wife’s car.


Regardless of your arrogance, there is a functioning Radar Detector installed in the car…

Oh no, I should be the one who apologizes. I had no idea a Radar Detector was a factory option that can be accessed and controlled via Command screen. Obviously I am not all knowing. A stab in the dark here but perhaps by selecting the "activate" option from the Command screen will confirm that a radar detector is already installed.

I bet it's for the collision warning or some other radar guided safety feature on the car, not for a police radar detector.
