Blendmount Passport 9500IX

Has anybody installed the Passport with the Blendmount kit? I know Blendmount makes a Valentine 1 mount specific to the Challenger SRT8 and am hoping the Passport installs just as cleanly.

I've decided on the Passport 9500ix but would like to see how they are being hardwired into the Challenger SRT8s. Thanks.

I have the one for the 8500, and love it. Grabbed power from the power mirror. Works great

Yes I just installed the blendmount a couple of days ago for my 9500ix. It was a pita to install but well worth the trouble.

Man...I love this forum. Thanks for the response.

You say it was a PITA...any reason why specifically? Did you have to modify their mount? I plan on having a shop install and hardwire the detector...so hopefully it won't be too much of a PITA for them.

I had a car audio shop install the hardwire for the 9500ix awhile back. The blendmount was a pita because it was difficult to handle the u-joint type bracket and the tiny allen screws with my gargantuan hands . I found it very cumbersome trying to tighten the screws with the supplied allen wrench and the mirror in the way. I didn't have to modify the mount though, it fits perfectly. You can't even see the 9500ix from outside the car because it blends in so well with the rear view mirror. You will be able to adjust the mirror while keeping the radar straight and the gps still has a clear line of sight. Hope this helps

Here is a noob question...but even hardwired in...can you easily unplug the Passport for storage? I don't want to leave all this "tech" in plain sight if I'll be parking the car or what not.

What about hardwiring the unit. Doesn't that mean you can't mute it any more? It's a clean looking setup for sure.

The hardwire cable comes with a mute button. The cable is specifically made for escort radars. You can get either the blue led or red led warning light. It's called an Escort Direct Wire SmartCord.
