Simple question - I’ve read how several of you have trimmed a visor mount down to fit another rd. What tool do you use to do that?

I use my r3 mostly, however sometimes I use my max 360 - which is so damn big with the included mount on the windshield. I have several old Escort visor mounts but they don’t fit. If I could shave a hair off the side, I think I have seen others do this and it would fit.

I know this can potentially cut down on gps and they don’t recommend, etc. but it would fit nicely on the passenger visor.

Thanks.

If you want to cut up a metal mount easiest way is with a grinder. You might be able to also use a dremel with a grinding disc attachment.

That and/or cutting shears... use the dremel for fine tuning, especially the notch. That might need metal cutting wheel point.

What are you trying to mount?

The R3 will mount to a visor with either of the Radenso mounts. You have to mod the ProSe / RM type.
