Agree with JWardell. It is a trade off of performance vs how it looks. You also need to evaluate what law enforcement is using in your area to determine how much performance you need (I am in California). I found the battery operated Escort models did not work well. I have been very happy with my Escort 9500 detector mounted on a bean bad in front of the Touchsreen and plugged into a front USB port using a USB to 12-volt converter. The Touchscreen does block my viewing of the radar detector display but I get plenty of audible warning. The nice part is that it is hardly visible while sitting in the car or from the outside (makes my wife happy). No wiring hassles at all and it allows me to easily move between the two Model 3's we own for trips.
