Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Blendmount Beltronics / Escort Radar Detector Mount (EXCEPT Escort MAX). High Quality Custom Mount (BBE-2000,2009,2010,2011,2012 or 2013)(Not Compatible with European Vehicles and C6 Corvettes)
This is a really great mount for people who don't want to attach their radar detector to the front windshield with suction cups. The mount is very adjustable but you probably need to be able to keep the portion of the mirror stem that this connects to pointed directly down the center of the car to give the best coverage (up and down angle is not important, but side to side angle keeps your detector from pointing too far left or right). They may want to add a swivel in future designs to make sure its compatible with all cars and peoples' angle preferences for their mirrors. My mirror is adjustable enough so that this was a non issue for me.
The mount is very sturdy and stable. I added a small piece of Velcro under my mirror and on top of the radar detector though because I have pretty stiff after market springs and bad roads, so sometimes the detector would tap against the bottom of the mirror going over pot holes. For those with a normal suspension, this should be a non issue as well. After spending several hundred dollars on a radar detector, this is a worthwhile investment to keep your detector inconspicuous and prevent if from falling off the windshield.
This is a very well constructed product "blends" right in with the car for an OEM look. If you have mirror that is self dimming or has a compass I recommend pairing this with product like InvisiCord (taps into your mirror to power the detector) to eliminate any power cords hanging down from the window. Overall I am very pleased with the form and function of this product, and recommend it to anyone who wants a nice clean sturdy installation.
