    This company makes awesome mount and cables for radar detector mounting. I have one in the 2012 Ex I'm trading in.

    I need to order one, but I can't figure out which mirror is the mirror in the Platinum. Please have a look here and see if you can determine which one is it??

    Once I order the right mount I'll add a cable that lets me plug into the molex connector on the back of the mirror so there are no loose cords and the detector switches on and off with the ignition.

    I just bought this mount that includes the MirrorTap on Amazon for my 2013 XLT and new Escort Max2.

    Both for half the price of the Blendmount.

    Radar Mount

    Thanks for that, but the mirror on the Platinum includes the Lane Keeping Camera and I believe is different. Blend Mounts also are aircraft aluminum and adjust at three or four different axes with allen nuts so I'm set on their quality despite the price.

    I appreciate you pointing that one out though.

    If no one is able to give you the answer you're looking for, see if a dealer near you has a Platinum in stock. I'm guessing a Limited or perhaps a Sport may also have the same mirror.

    I've put a deposit on a Black/Black Platinum at my local dealer...I will go and get a look at the mirror, may be snap a few pics. Will report my findings back in this thread.
