Mounting a 9500ix?

What are you folks using to mount your radar detectors, I was looking at the blend mount but I thought I saw someone write that it couldn't be used with the 2012. I really don't want to use the suction cups. Also has anyone hardwired?

Interested as well.

Correct, the blend mount I used with the WK1 doesn't work with the WK2.

I'm still thinking of what to do myself. I may just switch to a 9500ci lol. Right now I'm using suction cups and plugged into the cig lighter. Not what I like. I like the blend mount and direct wired.

If the visor clip is in the same location as that on the WK1 you could use this Corvette mount. Pics are from my WK1:

The 9500ci is IMO the best concealed radar system out there. I've done my research and that's what I conclude. It'll be similar to the 9500ix just adds laser jammers and the radar is stealth mount instead of window mount. The 9500ix kicks butt! The 9500ci will do the same. You won't regret it. I'll probably switch down the road and do a 9500ci on my WK2.

I had a blend mount on my 2004 GC Laredo and when I bought the SRT it didn't fit. Contacted blend mount and they ended up shipping me for free a couple different lengths for it and a shipping label back to send whatever I didn't use.

There isn't really access to the rear view stem on the WK2 to mount a blendmount. It's blocked by the other stuff, plus it's a lot smaller and conical in shape.

I've though about just using epoxy and mounting a small stud to the rear of the mirror housing for the blendmount to clamp around.

You have to cut it and it fits nicely! It's on with 3m tape, you can also use screws for extra strength.
