    Hi all,I want to hard wire my snooper speed camera detector but am unsure where to do it as I don't want to trigger warning lights on the dash,I suppose the fuse box would be best,anyone have any suggestions ?

    Take the main positive feed from the fusebox, make sure its a switched live so your snooper isn't on all the time

    I'd use the switched live that goes to the stereo. Can't see the snooper pulling much current so you should be fine to use it.
