The cleanest solution would be Mirror Tap with a Blendmount or use the single suction cup mount.

Sorry to hear about your ticket. An expensive lesson to learn for sure. Do you know if the officer was using radar or laser? And what kind? Does it state on the ticket?

Thanks! I started checking out the Blendmount products already... that's the direction I think I might be heading... just leave it in there and wired in at all times...

Yep - stupid on my part... Radar check box is checked, but there is also a checkbox on the form for Lidar, so I assume this LEO group runs both... Considering ALP possibly in the future as well...

Welcome to RDF! Sorry to hear about your ticket. I have the R7 on a BlendMount and love it! Won’t help protect against laser, but for radar, it should serve you well!

Thanks! Is there really anything out there that is good at detecting laser? Or I guess by the time its detected, its too late already...

The V1 is the best at catching laser scatter from what I’ve read here, and is basically the only radar detector that has a chance at providing a save. All other radar detectors are what we like to call ticket notifiers, or as you said, by the time laser is detected, it’s too late to slow down.

For defense against laser, you’ll need laser jammers (also referred to here as parking sensors). ALP seems to be the go to. There is also TMG that is gaining popularity. Both manufacturers have their respective sub-forums, so definitely check those out.

Yeah... I think I read that about the V1... just seemed like the R7 was the best choice across the spectrum, including the new low power stuff

At least it didn't take you as long as me. I've been stopped 60 times before coming here!
Eh... not my first rodeo either lol

You did well. Usually a laser detection turns into a ticket notifier.
