I meant where do you mount the actual radar detector ?
The Passport is an "installed" radar, so the display was the only thing that was inside the car. The rest of the radar was mounted in the grill and on the rear license plate.

This is great n all, but can the digital mirror in the TRX accommodate the display inside the mirror??
From a technology standpoint, it shouldn't work. And even if it could be installed, it would block that portion of the LED display permanently, which would suck.

Yes, I think it may block it. I don’t think it will go up much higher unfortunately. I actually had extra blendmount pieces left over from my Raptor and I tried a lot of options but couldn’t get it up much higher. I’m just gonna leave it as it is until the Radenso Theia comes out. I may be waiting a bit tho. Call blendmount, they are super nice and knowledgeable. Good luck!
I just talked to Tony at Blendmount and he suggested a couple things. First he said the center link is removable, and you'd get a little extra height out of the radar, but it would also move the radar forward and may cause an issue when flipping the mirror. The other thing he said is that the base clamp(that mounts to the suction cup mount) is not hardened, so that section can be bent to give more height to the radar. I guess I'll play around with that eventually when my truck arrives.

I already had the blend mount from my Raptor and it worked on the trx. You can buy extensions from them to extend it more toward the windshield thus allowing it to mount up ”higher”. In the cab. My dilemma now is which dash camera will fit above the V1 radar already mounted. If radensos theia ever comes out I’m dropping my v1 like a bad habit. No disrespect to v1 but theia is supposed to be the cats meow

Do you have a pic of this setup you can share? I'm curious if that mount can be adjusted to get the V1G2 snug up against the mirror, or if the mirror base is in the way to prevent a tight fit.
Here is what I ended up doing. I went and got a right angle brace (

) and straighten it out most of the way, leaving a slight taper. Been working great and I have full range on the rear view mirror.

Oh wow, that's a clean install! And you even got a dash cam attached to the same mount?! Bravo! 👏

My installer would not mount my Radar Detector (Uniden R7) that close to my dashcam (Blackvue 900x). He said the dashcam would block/interfere with the Radar range. I could not find anything to back up his theory.

Honestly, I haven't noticed a difference, it is just as noisy in the typical parts of town and squawks like mad when needed to keep me out of jail. :) I do swear by my V1, it has saved me more time than I can count.

I have thought about a blend mount from the mirror but I am paranoid of some one busting my window to steal it.
I mount my high behind the eyebrow tint.
What mount are you using? Would you share a picture of your setup?

Say what!? I must be living under a rock. Does this work with the stock mirror/any mirror (and with the reverse camera mirror?)?
Not sure if it will work with our stock mirror with the built in reverse camera. I had this in both my Hellcats and Escalade and it worked in those mirrors. If you are really interested, i would reach out to the company ask them.

Thanks. I guess that is double sided tape? Does it hold well?

3M VHB. Amazon sells them as squares.
Thanks, I had already ordered that mount from eBay. Ordered the 3M VHB squares from Amazon just now. Need my radar detector to show up and I will be set

Looks great. Did you wire up your 360 yourself? If so, will you please share the process and where you grabbed power from. Thanks!
