Can confirm this works on a 2022 as well. Nice easy way to wire your radar detector.

That's affirmative. Wire 1 is white, plug the red wire tap into this one. Wire 2 is grey, skip this one. Wire 3 is black, plug the black wire tap into this one. The grey wire (wire 2) will work, but your device will turn off when in reverse.

Mine works great. Make sure you secure the wires as if on a rough road it will wiggle out.

I want to thank everyone who contributed to this thread. I bought the item below from Amazon. It shows the extension in the pics but it didnt come with the order. I reached out to Radar Mount Co. and they sent the short pigtail extender. I needed this extender because I mount my V1 on the visor. I plugged into the white wire and black wire. The detector does not turn off in reverse and it goes off when the car is turned off. Thanks again.
