Default Using a Blendmount mounting bracket on a 360c detector

Hi,
New to the forum. I have Blendmount mounting bracket that I've been using for my Escort Max 2. I will be purchasing an Escort 360c soon and would like to know if anyone has modified the Blendmount to work with the 360c. Does Blendmount make a modification for the 360c?
Thank you for any input

Good question. I went from a Max 2 to the Max 360c with my Blendmount. The company offers a replacement upgrade mount that uses the mounting lug from the 360c's sticky mount system (which is included in the box). It works great!

Highly recommended!

I too bought the upgrade kit. Updated my 9500ix mount to a 360c mount. Worked wonderfully.

Default Escort should make a mirror mounting bracket

I wish Escort made a mirror bracket. Just purchased a Max360c. Looking at the laws in Florida it is illegal to mount anything to your windshield. Who knew?

Look at the BlendMount. They're amazing. Excellent quality, attaches to the neck of your rear view mirror, so it does not violate most of the laws on the book about something not being allowed to touch the windshield.

I use a Blendmount with my Max 360c. Offering a tip, here, make sure that the detector is positioned far enough forward under the windshield that the GPS logo on top of the detector has a clear view of the sky. The GPS chip is located beneath the GPS logo.

There was one of these just the other day where the customer moved the detector forward just a bit and it fixed the issue. I believe they had a blendmount also. The Rearview mirror can block the view.

Letís see what happens when you reposition. It could be needing a trip to Escort for service.
