I have a 98 Dodge Intrepid that I love. Just bought my first RD, a Beltronics 995, after reviewing posts here.
It's working fine - 1 save so far, plus 1 announcement that I was about to get a ticket from a LEO running Laser. It's picked up multiple K and Ka where I wasn't going more than 10 mph over the limit as well.
My only issue is mounting the 995. The window suction cup mount lets the unit hang slightly below level, and it slides off the mount all the time. It metal seems brittle, so I don't want to try and bend it up.
By setting the suction mount just above the rearview mirror, and letting the mirror support the back edge of the unit, it stays up fine, except that it's a nuisance to put on the mount every time I start a trip.
Right now, to save my sanity, I have it sitting on top of the dash on a non-slip pad.
So how do you folks deal with this? By having it on top of the dash, am I in danger of not getting detections I would if I used the windshield mount? Are there alternative mounts available?
