I also used a 12" Micro Version Invisicord with a built in fuse. It fits perfectly.

How did you get the bracket under the visor retaining clip? I used that mount in my WK, now want to use it in the WK2...

Re: Valentine One BlendMount with Invisicord Install

this write up was great, recieved my invisicord today, installed in about 5 minutes. I don't mind my V1 on the suction cups, they have held great going on 5 years in various vehicles.

Re: Valentine One BlendMount with Invisicord Install

Nope and if I wanted to take off it will have to be by destroying the mirror back for sure.
Here in Puerto Rico even with the humidity at 80% or more and temps of over 95 it has hold really well.
This thing is the best mount even.

Bumping an old thread. Great info here. Helped me find the Great Lakes bracket. Installed just now with my X50 and 8" Invisicord micro. The bracket needed about an inch trimmed off each side. Thanks guys!

Re: Valentine One BlendMount with Invisicord Install

Does that mount block you line of sight? The one thing that I'm not crazy about on the Overland is how big the mirror is and how it creates a blind spot, this mount seems like it would just make it that much worse. No?

Yes and no. Looking straight forward its not much of an issue but making a right turn at a corner I'm not familiar with I sometimes find myself looking under or around it. I don't find it much more of a inconvenience than it actually being mounted to the window on suction cups.

That one should work. I used the micro 8" fused cord.

What would be a benefit of having the fuse.

Protect the radar from a surge. Most of the cords that plug into the cigarette lighter have a small fuse in them.

Re: Valentine One BlendMount with Invisicord Install

The invisicord already has a fuse integrated to the cable.
