Rearview mirror wiring and circuit capacity

Hi All- New to the fourm. I have a 2004 Chev Tahoe Z71 and will be picking up an '07 Vette in 10 days- very excited!! My apologies in advanced if this has been asked before- not sure if my search was extensive enough.

I just bought an Escort Passport 8500 X50 radar detector. I would like to rig the power supply into the power for the rearview mirror on the Tahoe. Does anyone know what the wiring diagram for that connector is? Also, the detector draws 220 mA peak current at 12V, does that circuit have the headroom for the additional current consumption?

Thanks in advance,

Welcome to the forum. I'm not at my regular PC so can't give you the website but there's one out there that also sells a mounting system that puts the detector on the bottom of the mirror.

If you still have time left in your 30 day period, recommend you also try a Valentine 1. I think they both have a 30 day trial period. I used Escort for years and finally tried the Valentine 1. Won't go back.

Here's a thread that has both the cord and mount:
