Passport 9500ci

I installed a Passport 9500ci in my PGTS and it looks great. For those of you looking to put in radar or change your existing radar setup, I highly recommend Scott over at radar-mirror.com.

My dealer did the install and Scott supplied the Panamera OEM mirror with an integrated display. I would recommend getting the red display vs the stock blue display, because it is brighter. The upper left hand corner location of the display in the mirror is set so that the the roof of the cabin serves as a background when the display is on. I would take a pic in the sunlight but the LED "scrolls" and wrecks the picture...but believe me, you can see it.

I was also able to retain 100% functionality in my mirror.

There are no problems seeing the display during the day even with a cream colored interior. If you are looking for a mirror display, beware of poor imitations. My dealer initially pursued an alternative route with the mirror display, but they quickly rectified the situation when they saw the initial result.

I placed both the control unit and display in the ashtray as that compartment is pretty much useless. Looks cleaner as well. Did not want to intergrate onto my rear view mirror as I do not need to see it every minute or so.

I did not consider the ashtray when I did this, but think its a good idea. For me, the less wires the better. ...makes for a much cleaner look.

Here you go. Pardon the dog bite on the cover, my dog decided it was her toy. Getting it swap to carbon fibre this week!

On the other hand, I can still close it perfectly fine with the display in there. Downside, I lost a cigarette lighter/12v port but there's plenty around the car so it's not a problem. The power button is rerouted, right below the control unit, hidden under the leather. Can't be seen from the picture.
