Yeah 2 guys....an Aggie and "Don Pedro" gave it one star. You could invent a pill that cured ugly and somebody would give it one star because they could not figure out how to open the bottle. You can fix bad hearing with hearing aids, bad eyesight with glasses/contacts....but you just cannot fix stupid.
Thank you, by the way. I said screw it and just ordered one for the missus. She just got tint done (including an eyebrow the clear heat/UV rejection film on the windshield) and didn’t have the V1 up like normal. Got popped for speeding on the way into work. Let off with a warning! Lesson learned is keep the V1 in place. Gets here Monday, and I’ll put it on then.It is rock solid and works great. Even in the South Texas heat for a couple years now.
I highly recommend this mount.
The magnet has plenty of force to prevent rotation left/right and the magnet mount is rubber to add some friction. It has never moved.
I use those mounts for my cell phones. They are great. Never thought to try and use one to mount an RD.The magnet has plenty of force to prevent rotation left/right and the magnet mount is rubber to add some friction. It has never moved.

So does using this mount give you the adjustment capability of the suction cup mount? Like sliding the RD in and out to level it out?I highly recommend this mount.
The way I have mine set up there is probably 5mm of clearance. This is very adjustable though depending on where you stick the magnet mount on the V1, the slope of your windshield, and the angle of the escort mount (since it can be bent).What's the distance from the windshield to the top of the V1 with this mount?
Look at it again. It’s just a piece of metal with 3M tape that replaces the suction cups on the standard mount. Think of it as exactly the stock mount, just with mega sticky suction cupsSo does using this mount give you the adjustment capability of the suction cup mount?

In the South, with wild temperature swings possible in every season but summer, mine always end up letting go. At least once a year. And when you have to remove it often for testing indoors, because you have only one, it's even worse.Gosh, I've always used the suction cup mount with no issues. Every 5 years or so, I dunk the suction cups in a cup of boiling water, and they are like new again.
