I want one know... It looks great and you don't need extra wires! Well done Escort!

Does your M1 beep every time you start and turn off your car? Have you figured out a way to turn that off?

Yes, mine beeps when I start and turn my car off. It's operating as per the user manual, but I also find it annoying as well.

GE Axiom, I am not quite sure what you are asking. Blend Mount has part kits for the conversation from 360 to 360C, as well as additional links kit. Avedis53 and I happen to have all the pieces as we must have taken the same upgrade route. Perhaps a call to blend mount would be a better option than my limited knowledge of there hardware. Besides they have a what's next on their website for the M-1, might be a better option.

Does the direct smartcord still work with the M1? also i have the Max 360 could you please provide the what you purchased for the conversion.
I have the Max360 and I installed mine without converting it to the magnetic mount. I did have the extra link so that my radar detector would be far enough forward to get good GPS reception but other than that one extra link I just bought a extra screw and a large washer from Lowes for the install.

The spare parts kit I bought was: LINK REMOVED, just gives you an extra link.

Moderator note: Links to product sales are not permitted on Escort's support forum. Thanks for understanding!

And then I bought
a 6-32x1 stainless steel screw
a #6 flat washer
a #6 lock washer

The washer that comes with the parts kit is too small and although the screw was long enough it was JUST long enough whereas my 6-32x1 screw has got screw to spare.

Then I just screwed the M1 mount to the extra unused hole on the spares bracket on the side with the Max360 power plug.

Here's a pic with the radar detector not on the mount looking up from the bottom. You can see the second link there where the M1 is mounted and you can see the long screw going through the unused hole.

Im debating on if i should just wait until blend mount comes out wiht one or since i have a Volvo i have a black box that records everything so in a situation where i have to i could recover the video so i may just stick with my radar and no cam.

So, I was hoping for a different solution from Blend Mount, something that would let me removed the camera quickly, but it's the same design as I already figured out. I do like the idea that Mehgyver had of using the extra link empty hole.

I understand Escorts rules about promoting other product like BlendMount but threads like this would help other like myself that drive in states where the suction cup mount on a windshield are illegal.

I still buy Escort products and I really like the new suction cup but I would also like to know about other mounts and what others have done to avoid getting in trouble with the law.

Stepping off my soapbox now!
