Link to website --> BlendMount. Their "mirror tap" also looks very ingenious. I would totally use it if my vehicle allowed.

Here's a link to my V1 install on my other vehicle.

Good luck with your install and I look forward to seeing your results.
Nice install! I was also would like the blend mount but why won't it work on your vehicle? Do you have an auto dimming mirror?

My nit pics with them are the incredibly dumb LED indicators for full, partial, and least sensitivity..........instead of having something logical like 1, 2, and 3, or A, B, and get the idea. The other thing is the incredibly tiny letters next to the radar/laser band indicator LEDs. DUDE! No one has 20/10 vision! Why not have LED or illuminated LCDs that clearly show X, K, Ka, or L?!

Thought about a direct hidden hot line like you've done, many many times in the past. Never got around to it. Nice job on yours though! maybe when I get home next.
Haha I hear you. I already memorized the order they are in from bottom to top (X, K, Ka and L). It would be nice to have a display that clearly read out what band it was on. But oh well, I still like it.
