...or would that be unclamped the wallet?
Hey folks! Long time lurker - first time poster. I've read a couple hundred of these posts over the last 2 weeks as I made final preparations to purchase my V1, and I just pulled the trigger this evening. I went ahead and got the case and the remote display (I'll probably do my own version of the LED mod to it sometime).
A couple questions regarding mounting:
1. I have a Toyota Solara (not the newest style - the one before), which has a small area above the mirror with the black "defroster dots" on it. They are very small, I'd say around 1/16 of an inch. Would putting the suction cup mount here cause them to lose grip, or would they hold? I'd prefer to keep it mounted above the mirror and slightly in the tint band (I know, I know). The other option is some sort of custom ABS/Fiberglass mount. Never done that kind of work before though.
2. You guys will laugh at this. I just know it. If I take an extra long phone cord, can I use small gobs of the blue, gummy "poster tack" stuff to route the wire around the periphery of the windshield and have it stick? I'm going for a workaround to hard-wiring it, while I'm within the 30 days, but I HATE dangling cords - they look way too 80's for me. Any suggestions or ideas? I'm trying to do something without removing trim pieces, A-pillar housings, etc.
Thanks for the help guys, and I'm looking forward to my new toy!...
