Am I just imagining all this?
Yeah he wired it for the escort remote.

Mounting the detector near the dash isn't a good idea, it is better for lidar but most of the time whenever you get hit with laser your screwed anyway (unless you have a jammer). Most people and radar detector manufacturers tell you to mount the detector high for best line of sight with radar.
