radar detector mirror mount

I'm sure this has been discussed but I have had no luck finding in search.

Does anyone make a mirror mount for the Escort Passport 9500xi? I looked into the Blendmount but does not appear to fit 13 Overland.

Any suggestions ?

Any luck with other mounts ?

Id prefer something other then suction cups as there ... ugly and in AZ 115 tends to warp there best of them.

Thanks All!

Re: radar detector mirror mount

Yes there is one from these guys. I did a DIY on this mount for our GC 2012 Here is their link.

Also look at my profile and search the DYI I did on these matter 15 months ago.

Re: radar detector mirror mount

This is great, thanks for the reply. I was concerned when I could not find a mirror mount. Then for the help!

Becasue you have a 2014 GC and it is different type of mirror mount than 2010-2013.

Sorry bout that. Didn't think it would be different, most parts I'm finding are the same for 13,14's.

Re: radar detector mirror mount

This mount works very, very well! It is thinner so it works better that others. I have it on my 2014 JGC Overland with the 9500ix. I also used the wire kit to connected to the power behind the mirror but I can't find that info right now.

Does everyone leave the radar mounted 100% of the time? Or you taking on/off the mount when you park to prevent theft?

Depends on where I am. I usually leave it mounted.

The Blendmount worked well for me. Used MirrorTap also.

Re: radar detector mirror mount

I bought one of these on ebay and it's worked well in the Beltronics STi. All of the mounts for this radar have been a little rattle prone, so I wedged the tip of a zip tie into the back end where it connects to the mount and snipped the excess. Snug fit and it's been great.

One not so obvious benefit of this mount is that the detector is a little farther from eyes and ears.

Here are a couple of quick (crappy) pics I took for someone else that asked. I'll get better ones when I have some time.
