    Which rearview mirror radar detector mount works best on 2017 Model S? Blendmount has none that would fit 2017 Model S. Tried Radarmount but not a good fit.

    I have been trying to find a good mount for my 2013 MS. Bought many types off the internet and all failed. I may try a flat, thick piece of plastic attached to the mirror top and velcro to that next. I have that stupid windshield with the small RF window. Such a freaking pain!!! I even tried the printable one from Thingiverse. That was the best but it broke at the hinge 80% fill print. I may reprint it using ABS plastic and try again. EVERYTHING else has been garbage with my Escort Max series units. I'm about to upgrade my Laser Interceptor laser jammers to AL Priority jammers....might just eBay my Escorts and get the radar detector option on the AL system. Talking big bucks but problem solved! Escorts with remote heads are beyond expensive!

    I did not like the fit of radarmount. Hard to move your mirror after installing it

    Yeah, the top portion of the mount looks like it would interfere with the mirror. I'm guessing that you were not able to get your mirror into your preferred position for visibility?

    Changing mirror position with different drivers is difficult
