I just finished installing my Escort Max and AntiLaser system. The installation wasn't really that bad but it did require some planning ahead.
I recorded a lot of the progress but I don't like talking into Youtube videos so I'll probably just post more pictures.

I would recommend getting your Max a bit higher and leveled properly. It does make a difference in range.

Good advise! The one thing bad about this detector is the cheap window mount. It bounces the detector all around the window and it's pretty annoying.
I live in Georgia and I haven't seen a radar gun in the last 7 yrs (except the small towns way outside Atlanta). When I travel I'll hang it on the bracket. Thanks again!

I am surprised your mount bounces the MAX around. I found the new style that came with the MAX to be a great improvement over the older styles and very sturdy. I have experienced very little vibration (aka bounce) with it whether I mount it at the front/center of the transparent roof panel (my preferred location) or just behind the mirror and slightly below on the driver's side on the windshield.

While the new suction cup mount included with the MAX is a vast improvement, it is still bouncy compared to the BlendMount. As far as I know, we are still waiting for BlendMount to develop a model for our C7.

Anyone have any updates on the BlendMount?

The BlendMount website still says they are taking "preorders for the C7." Is that outdated?
Ordered mine last week and got it installed. I'm a little worried because my car is a convertible so I'm raising the top up and down more than I would like to hide the radar from someone reaching in.
The Blendmount is stable and stopped the shaking from the stock mounting bracket.

Received mine too! Nothing beats the BlendMount. It's more awesome than a helicopter made of chocolate cake. And bacon!

Petemoss, you are correct in that there are problems with some but not all users of the BlendMount and the Max. If you do a search you will find several related posts.
