I need to figure out a way to get the 360C higher up on the windshield for my travels through VA and DC. I bought the one in the link below thinking it would be higher than the standard suction cup but the arm is long and the RD sits almost below the rear view mirror with it mounted as high as I can get it in my F150.


I was perusing @Vortex website and it looks like the mount he is using is super high. Can @Vortex or anyone else weigh in on the one in the picture?

Go with a visor holder, that's what I do when I pass through VA. I'm using this one with my RL360c, works great.

You have everything you need! A number of us have bought your same mount.....remove the bolt/pin from your e-bay mount. Remove the magnet from your OEM escort mount. Slide the bolt/pin through the OEM escort Mag on the striped Ebay mount and you are done!

Now why didn't I think of that! Thanks.

I’m using that same mount with a Scosche magnet for quick removal and it sits pretty high. You can see my setup here, which is similar to what westwind77 mentioned:


I think I can make it a tad higher by removing the bolt and flipping the bracket 180°, which I’m going to try this weekend.

Thanks for the additional tip. Now I just have to figure out how to remove the VHB tape I stuck to the windshield!
