Advice Sought re: Blind Spot Monitor in Vision Pack

I had a similar feature in two different Audis. They worked by emitting radar, thereby constantly activating my radar detector rendering it useless. Even turning off the feature merely turned off the display, but not the radar itself. I have an F-Type on order with the Vision Pack (I'm addicted to rear view cameras) but before I hot wired a power cord for my detector (Passport Max) into the electrical system of the car, I was curious as to whether or not I'll have the same problem. Thanks.

FWIW, I have Vision Pack and Passport Redline and have had no problems. The detector is mounted to the windshield about 4 inches above the dash.

I should also mention I have the detector set to ignore X-band since it is only used in very limited areas of the country. You can Google for specific info if you like. Maybe your Audi's used X-band for the vision pack.
