2013 X6M  [0.00]
great info. I will be referring to this when I uninstall my Sti-R and Dual BlackVue and re-install in my new X6M.

For those that have the Radar detectors installed, any interference with the laser distance cruise control sending false alerts?

I finally hooked up my radar detector via the mirror tap. I "tapped" into the wiring harness on the backside (side closer to the windshield) as other(s) have reported. It was a really easy process. I would recommend performing with warmer temperatures as plastics are definitely more malleable. I took everything apart once before when it was colder out, even with the heat on and was more difficult to separate and remove plastic coverings. I will now order the blendmount for the detector. I attached a few photos below. Hopefully, someone will find them helpful.

Hi, this is just for clarification as I realize you are all set with your setup but those photos in the other thread are of a G05. It looks identical to my 2020 G05.

Take care!

Here are some updated photos with the MirrorTap and Blendmount. I would prefer if it could be located closer to the windshield, although not at the expense of being lower, rather with a longer lower bracket. The Blendmount is rock solid however with no movement.

Thanks for the photo depicting wire position/location for the ground and +12V. The image is a little washed out, and was wondering if by chance you recall the color(s) of each of the wires you tapped into? TIA for your help. Cheers.

I received some new parts for the Blendmount. The company was very accommodating with the issue I had as far as wanting to bring the detector closer to the windshield. I really couldn't ask for any better service. Kudos to the Blendmount team!

Thumbs up Works perfectly
