I have had a detector in all my vehicles continuously since 1975. They have all been hardwired to come on when the vehicle is started and power down when the vehicle is shut off. All of them have been mounted to the windshield above the review mirror when there is room other wise just below the mirror. The only time any of them are taken down is if i have to park in a sketchy area which is not often. So they sit on the windshield on 95 degree summer days and subzero winter nights.

I typically keep them 7 or 8 years before updating to current technology and i can only recall one actually failing and that was a different brand unit back in the 80s.

Making electronics survive in an automotive environment is well understood and i would think any reputable manufactuer of radar detectors would design/build for the environment. My experience suggests they do.

Hopefully heat won't be an issue .....but just in case, When I mounted the RD above the mirror, I added a small self adhesive bumper to the left corner for the RD to rest on. My thought is this will reduce the weight and stress on the sticky cup and prevent the sticky cup from giving way in heat. It's and idea and we'll see if it succeeds!

It shouldn’t fall. Hopefully not!

they don't give way, they blow up from the pressure build up in the heat.

This is very helpful and I appreciate you taking the time to respond. Mine will stay up all the time. I love my blendmount with the hardwire. Will never do anything else. Just love ❤️ my RL360c.

RL360c on a BlendMount is the best. I use a mirror tap clean install and the RL360c turns on when the car wakes up.
