I got to tell you. Someone at Escort needs to actually get out there and use this thing. By design it puts the 9500ix GPS antenna way back under the roof unless you mount it low on the windshield where thieves and cops can see it better.
I'm just glad the metal tab is of soft material so I could fold it back and get a nice tailored mounting position.
I have a tie-wrap for an emergency tether in the event the cup lets go she will hang.
I have it hard wired with the control on the dash in a great spot.
With ajust a little foresight they could have made the tab reversible.
