    I'll have to go look, but it's a Cobra with the 1" LCD screen

    Cool i'd like to see it. It would solve my issue with the detector not sticking.

    some details:

    Beltronics RX 65 Pro
    with this mount it does not budge!
    No shaking, rattling, nothing.

    super easy to install it and it also has a height adjustment if you want it closer to the mirror, i have it set about in the middle.

    LOL...it seemed reasonable to me. Probably because I am a machinist and I know how much it would cost for me to custom make the mount. I just cannot stand having a detector attached to the windshield or velcroed to the dash.

    just a personal choice i spose.. :shrug:

    :gmfs:
     
  14. male d-sub pins are what I went with and they are perfect.

    you get 25 of the crimp on pins with this, which is exactly what I bought
