Dash Mount 8500 X50
I just purchased a Escort 8500 X50. I live in California. It is illegal to mount anything on the windshield of a car in Ca. Does anyone make a dash mount for the 8500 X50? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Nobody makes a "dash mount" for the X50 that I know of... try velcro.
They typically don't bug you on that stuff but you can try a Hand stands sticky Pad from your auto parts store, they hold stuff real good.
I like visor mount the best but you will cover your X50 controls up.
I actually use all three methods on three vehicles.

It is illegal to mount anything on your windshield in California, but enforcement of that law is extremely rare. However, I do know one guy who was given a ticket for having his X50 mounted on the windshield. It's such a rare ticket that I would not worry about it though.
