BlendMount Radar detector mount for Tesla Model S

So just an update... i went ahead and ordered a Blendmount BMG-2035 just to test out since it is also was fitted for a Tesla. Good news, it fit perfect and works fine! Problem solved! 2023 Model S LR.



I have a Uniden R7 that I permanently installed using an adhesive bracket off ebay (~$10). After trying a lot of different mount options in various vehicles, I find this is the cheapest and simplest option. The radar detector also shakes a lot less while driving and hitting bumps mounted like this.

The 2012-2020 Model S owner's manual also mentions:

Model S has a metallic coating on the windshield that can interfere with signals sent from RFID transponders used by many toll systems. Most Model S vehicles, depending on date of manufacture, include an area in the windshield in which the metallic coating is cut out to accommodate transponders. This area, located on the right side of the rear view mirror, is the best location to mount a transponder.

I have no idea if this has an effect on the radar detector but I decided that this was a good spot to mount it anyway so it wouldn't be in my direct line of vision while driving.
