I just purchased a Blendmount for my H&S tuner. While checking there site I really liked the idea for the radar detector mount kit as well.

My question has anyone ever used both, is there room on the mirror and any issues getting the wires into place?

Thanks in advance!!

I would like to know that as well, from the pics on the website it seems like the mounts, mount up in the same exact place..

I had never heard of them, but now I want one for my truck and my Subaru. I like the wiring that plugs into the power mirror to eliminate cords

I ordered the radar detector mount today so I guess I'll find out soon.

If anyone is ordering from Blend-mount use promo code "friend" it saved me $15.00

Thanks for the tip

They look like they are thin enough to fit one on top and one on bottom.

I have the radar detector mount for my V1. They are a pain to install and get it adjusted with your mirror - but when it's done it's worth it.

Any pics? I want one for my detector, and might try mounting a Watchdog up there too if running double works

This would be for a 2013 truck, since I have the CTS already mounted in my 07

Here are a few pics with my V1 in my old denali 1500. It looks the same in my HD. Not the best pictures but you get the idea

Well here is what I can say about the Minimax blend mount.

I was really jacked about having my Minimax up out of the way and a nice clean install.

But that was not the case.
The extra long communication cable was nice and and installation was fairly easy and clean.The mount while a great concept,didn't work out so well for me. The mount comes with (3) perforations on it so you can bend it for the best fit, in my case I bent it one to many times trying to find the correct configuration. It broke a part on one the perforation lines. The blend mount for H&S is a great idea but the fit is just not there at least not on my LML.
There is simply not enough room between top of the tuner and the headliner to allow for the correct mirror position for me.

On the other hand the blend mount kit for my escort radar detector is awesome.
I have not hard wired it to my mirror to power it yet but plan on doing it next week.

Hmm... that's is what I thought might be the case. I wanted to see pics, but suspected this and held off buying it. I'm happy to not do it...

Good call.
I could send pics of the broken mount, but I think you get the idea.Just no room.

But I love the mount for my radar detector:thumb

Put the BlendMount in my new 2013 for my Escort and put a BlendMount in my 06 Subaru STi so I can put the Escort in there too when I go play. Used the Mirror Tap wire harness in both, works great
