    Default Visor mount!

    Does anyone here use the visor mount for their V1? Or are all you guys "suckers"?

    I will give the visor a chance for a few weeks. Probably a good idea since you get a HIGH mount and not easy to see for peering eyes also.

    Another sucker.

    I'll use visor mount if I'm using someone else's car or a rental (don't really wanna leave suction cup marks), but it's harder to see the visual display if it's mounted way up on the visor.

    I have the suction mount permanently installed and hard wired in my daily driver. In the other car, I use the visor mount and cig outlet. It works fine I guess. The only problem is the visor points the V1 down so I have to pin something between the visor and roof to keep it level. Also, whenever I push the mute button, the clip shifts position.

    Can you give more details on the permanently installed suction cups? I was thinking of removing the suction cups and sticking the mount to the window with silicone calk.

    I didnt remove the suction cups from the mount because that would've gotten rid of the ability to adjust the tilt.

    I boiled the suction cups in water then soaked them in black fabric dye overnight. That resulted in tinted suction cups. Then I attached them back on the bracket. I put small dabs of heat glue in the center of the cups then pushed them onto the windshield. The glue spread out nice and evenly.

    That's pretty much it if you wanna call it a permanent install.

    i thought it was illegal in CA to have it mounted on the windshield...to have anything mounted on it for that matter (not specific to a rd). i dunno did i really just dream that up?

    I _think_ it's legal to mount on the windshield as long as it doesn't obstruct the driver's view -- at least that's the way I understand it. I think the law actually defines specific areas of the windshield where things can be placed but as long as it's not obstructing the driver's view I think it's okay. California law is so bizarre I could be wrong about this.

    Traffic enforcement in the south Bay Area is fairly lax (knock on wood). The San Jose PD is hesitant to write tickets -- the only trap I've seen is in a school zone. The sheriff's department doesn't really seem to run radar either. The big threat is the CHP, which is everywhere and very trigger-happy. Even with those guys, I haven't been hassled over the V1. Might be something that's on the books but isn't enforced.
