Hardwiring a Radar detector.

I won a Whistler DE-1743 off ebay for 99 cents.

eBay Link

I bought this kit to hardwire it.

I just removed a FM Modulator that used what looks to be the same t-tap as the hardwire kit for the power and ground to the cd player(+12 ACC POWER), now can I use the source as the FM Modulator to power the detector?

I would prefer this as it would turn on and off with the truck and require no additional tapping.

And yes I know I could've bought a nicer, newer unit, but I am on a budget of sorts.

Thank you.
