Anyone mirror mount their radar detector on their 991 Carrera? How did you do it? Did you wind up using Blendmount, if so what model. Also, did you use the Invisicord to tap into the Homelink or other roof power source. Any information on how you successfully did this would be appreciated. Ready to order my 911 and once it arrives, want to be able to do the hook ups. Any pictures and narratives of your hookup and how you tapped in to power source using the Invisicord would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi,

There is no switched 12 volt source in the overhead console. You will have to run your power lead under the head liner to the left A pilar down to the fuse box. I would not mount it to the rearview mirror. It will be to low and interfere with your site lines. Mount it to the left of the rearview up as high as you can get it. Unfortunately, I have not seen a decent aftermarket mount. The suction cup affairs always fall down eventually. What I did was to take the metal bracket from the suction cup mount that came with the Escort and using high strength medium thickness cyanoacrylate glue attached it to a piece of ebony 3 X 3 X 1/8 " . Using 3M mounting tape this was then attached to the windshield just in front of the headliner. It is minimalist, attractive and you will have to break the windshield to get it off.

You can use any hardwood. Just spray paint the entire assembly flat black.

If you have an Escort you need to get the "Live" module. It is way cool.

I bought a mirror mount and ran power from under dash up the A pillar and over to the mirror. I can't find the brand right now but got it from Amazon.

I beats the suction cup mounts with wires on the dash and the visor mount - both of which I tried and gave up on. I now can use my visor, but the detector is more visible to cops or other thieves. Cops no problem in most states. Detector detaches easily to hide from others.

BlendMount was the mirror mount I bought via Amazon. I tried to order directly, but their site apparently did not like my iPhone.
