Product Description

This Arkon radar detector dash and windshield mount has combined our heavy duty suction mount system with a mounting plate. The suction is rated to hold 20 pounds. Once it is attached to your windshield, it isn't coming down unless you want it to by pressing on the suction release. The angle of the mounting plate can be adjusted up and down. Your device attaches to the mounting plate with a heavy duty strip which we provide. We also include a dash plate with double sided tape from 3M so that the suction can adhere to your dash.

In California, it is illegal to have anything mounted to your windshield. GPS, Radar Detectors, etc. If an Officer feels inclined to, he can actually pull you over and ticket you for a windshield mounted device.

I have an Escort Passport 9500ix. I was using the windshield mount it came with. However, I noticed that it was rubbing up against my windshield when I drove and (I'm sure) in part to the dual 12's in the back. It was evident that continual use of the supplied windshield mount would eventually lead to a damaged windshield.

This dash mount is working great. It holds my radar detector perfectly still away from the windshield, while obeying one of CA's many ridiculous laws. Plus, it elevates the radar detector to the perfect spot in order to detect laser without jeopardizing radar detection.

First. the velcro mounting material that comes with this unit is super strong. You don't want to continually separate your radar unit from this mount. My dashboard finish is slightly pebbled,not good for a direct suction connection. I had a dashboard mounting pad for my GPS. This has a suction plate on it(Amazon purchase). I discovered that the friction grip between this pad and the dashboard was not great enough. The grip can be greatly increased by placing a silicone pad,hot pot holder, between the dash and the mounting pad. I would guess the friction grip increased by a factor of three(3 times stronger).The detector no longer slides around and just lifts off for easy removal, it's not permanently attached to the dash. The silicone pad found in housewares, that I use has bumps on both sides. Works great! Good Luck! JJB

Mount won't stay perpendicular to the dash. The platform keeps falling down even after tightening. The velcro sticky looks just plain cheap. If you want a good mount check out Blendmount for the Passport.

Really regret that I purchased this. I needed to mount a radar detector on my dash, and used the circular mounting plate. Even in just moderate sun, in two days the plate warped severely. When I tried to move it to another spot, the whole thing broke in two! Not surprising for a cheap piece of plastic. This is cheap junk -- at least the dash mounting piece. In terms of radar detectors, using this product to mount on a windshield is also useless, as the mounting piece that attaches to your windshield is so large, it will degrade your radar detector -- since it will either partially or entirely block it's forward "view". This is going in my trash can. Money wasted.

I've had this product for three months now. I have two Escort Radar Detectors (Passport and 9500). Both have the same windshield mount kit with suction cups. The problem with the factory kit is the small suction cups that don't last very long and you cannot find any better ones as after market. I tried a GPS / Cell phone windshield mount from Best Buy but they did not work well either. I really needed something that attached to the glass and not the dash board since my dash will not allow a suction cup to stick b/c its surface is to porous.

This product works better than anything else I have found at this time.
I found if you did attach the Velcro to the arm correctly it will stick tight. Its almost too tight. ( I read a review here it does not stick well but mine does stick almost too well). Sometimes when pulling the radar off the shelf arm it will pull off the whole suction cup from the glass. I also found that the arm is not real stable and you must get a screw driver and tighten it very tight to stop the arm from slipping and falling down. (Another issue I read here to but also I resolved). Over all this is a very good product. I have not found anything beter at this time. I would recommend this product to others for windshield mounting. I found another product that works great for BMW motorcycles ( K1200 RS ) that works great but this is not it. You cal find that on a site dedicated for motorcycle's called Pirates Lair.

Had to return it. I didn't realize the device sits on a platform and you velcro the two together. May not be too bad if you are doing a dash mount like the picture, but for windshield mounting the suction cup blocks the back of the radar detector facing the road. I need my detector to perform at its best and not risk detection performance from the suction cup.

It was not immediately obvious how you could use this heavy duty suction mount to fix the Escort 9500ix to the windshield. The mounting plate can only attach to the flat bottom part of the 9500ix, which means the 9500ix is either going to be upside down if you want it to hang below the big suction cup and bracket, or the 9500ix has to sit slightly above and behind this heavy duty bracket, with the bracket and suction cup blocking the front view of the 9500ix.

Eventually I figured out how to use the metal mounting bracket that holds the two original small suction cups to mount the 9500ix hanging down from this heavy duty mount. Just epoxy glue the metal bracket to the mounting plate! It's hard to describe, so I uploaded some photos to show how this works. This way, the 9500ix gets a completely unobstructed view of the front, and you can put the big suction cup and bracket behind the rear view mirror where it is not as noticeable and blocking your view of the road.

This way, the metal bracket slips into the slot at the top front of the 9500ix, and you don't need any adhesive velcro to attach the 9500ix to the mounting plate of this heavy duty mount.

The epoxy is barely noticeable - nevertheless, I painted it with some semi-gloss Testor's black model paint to protect the epoxy from being degraded by sunlight.

So far, the suction cup has worked well and is holding on tight to the windshield. With this arrangement, I can take the 9500ix off the mounting bracket using the release button for the small metal bracket rather than have to deal with velcro.
