I got bored so I decided to take another crack at fabricating a custom mount for my V1. Having it right below the mirror is preferable but I really hate having suction cups on the windshield attracting attention. They are incredibly good at catching the light on a sunny day!
My previous prototypes sucked because they just weren't solid enough. It's darn near impossible to use the mirror as a stand-alone mounting point and not have a detector that flops around and annoys me. This also posed a potential injury risk in a crash since I doubt the detector would have stayed put.
This time I used the mirror bracket as one mounting point and my FastLane transponder as the second point. This forms a "bridge" that is worlds better than earlier attempts. Here are some pics of the new prototype. It's a cosmetic nightmare but it gives you the idea of what I'm going for. I can't wait to take it on the road and see how it holds up!
Any constructive criticism is appreciated!
