Here are some from my former job of detectors in customer vehicles. Poor R3 and Max 360. I don't remember what that last one was, anyone have any ideas?
Phantom II. That thing is a relic.

When your boss gets a RD but you don’t want to say anything because you don’t want to get fired.

In fairness, in my current car, the single suction cup mount doesn't pitch down enough to allow my R3 to be level. This could be a similar situation.

Speaking from experience, I think all he'd have to do here, is rotate the suction cup 180 degrees, then rotate and relevel the clip off of the ball joint, and it'd solve that issue.

Most of the skypointer-Cobra sightings seem to be due to not routing the power cord up over the rear-view mirror stem to take the weight off the detector and mount. I prefer to hard-wire mine and keep it up high, where it's stealthy and I can pull the sun visor down to obscure it from drivers behind me (and LEO).

I couldn't get a picture due to traffic around me and the idiot driver of an abused Chevy SS sedan (the Australian made 4 door with LS power..want) driving like a maniac, cutting in and out of small gaps, weaving like a madman. I'd catch right back up to the idiot at the next light. SMH. Of course his radar detector was pointing 30-something degrees up to the sky, and the power cord was tugging down on it. It had a lot of silver on the housing and was on the larger size for a detector.
