i got a MirrorMount for my (bel 995) from amazon for about thirty bucks. holds the detector pretty well. i didn't really want it on the mirror but i wanted it up high and not attached to the windshield, and that seemed to be the only place (that would still let me flip the visors and not hit the detector)
i've got a remote mute switch ("smartcord") mounted with double-sided tape down by my knee.
one important note - if you go this route, make sure the pillar you choose will reach where you want to power it (and optionally, where you want the mute button to be). i had everything wired under the dash and pulled up the passenger A-pillar before i realized (due to where i put the mute button) it wouldn't reach over to the mirror and down to the detector. i had to switch and run it up the driver's A-pillar instead. d'oh!
here are some pics of the mount i have:
and where i located my Mute button:

what BCM are you referring to?
my car is a 2013 Focus ST and the Smart Junction box in the passenger footwell looks exactly like that picture.

Question for the group:
I am hard-wiring a bunch of electronics and would like everything connected via a keyed 12V source.
I used this fuse locations with an add-a-fuse:
To that fuse I added a 10A fuse and connected the following:
1) homelink mirror (less than 2 amp draw)
2) V1 radar detector (less than 2 amp draw)
3) Cheetah GPS detector (less than 1.5amp draw)
4) Garmin nuvi (less than 2 amp draw)
The items above work wonderfully and turn off/on with the key.
I want to add the following:
5) Blinder Xtreme m47 (less than 2 amp draw)
6) Blinder Xtreme m27 (less than 2 amp draw)
7) Nav-TV backup camera video board (less than 2 amp draw)
I believe if I add items 5,6,7 then I will blow the 10amp fuse. I do not want to add a 20amp fuse to the mini add-a-fuse (i believe these are only rated for 10amp max). Does anyone know of another keyed source in the Smart Junction box on the passenger side?
Thanks for the help this site is the best!!!

i tried a bunch of different ones to see if any worked with ignition with no luck. if someone could tell me which wire has 12v acc, I'd just use my vampire tap and be done with it instead of using add-a-fuse.
