I had just hoped it would be as easy as it is in the newer Benzs', having the lighter power either switched or constant, depending on how the fuse is placed in the fuse box.
Either way, I totally agree, safety first, which is why I'll put a fuse inline when I pull from the hot battery bus under the rear seat and route the wire up front.
Thanks for the replies and suggestions.
P.S. Kajtek1, if you're up to doing a little splicing, you can get a power plug adaptor with a lighted switch on it, that way, you could just switch it off rather than plugging and unplugging the adaptor for your radar detector. (I think I got mine at Radio Shack).
