I set mine up not really how i wanted to but the easiest way for where our fuse box is. I used an add a circuit, tapped into the last fuse in the box. I ran the wires in the gap between the dash and glovebox(held there w velcro), tucked the wires under edge of console, mounted mute button on passengers side of console(not really visible from my seat, but easy to hit the button). I then ran the detector cord back up the console, same area as it went the first time, up a pillar trim(under), tucked it under headliner, and came out by mirror. Best place for suctioncup mount was just to the right side of hte mirror. The cord was jsut a bit short to reach the left side of mirror. Let me know if you want and ill take pics next time i go out to the car.
