What Blendmount model would you use on a 991.2 ? Planning to mount my Uniden R3. Would I need to get the 15 or 20 wire ?

Check out the Belmount website but Iím pretty sure itís BNR-2021(auto dimming mirror) or BNR-2121 (manual dimming mirror).

I can confirm that for auto dimming mirror you need the model ending in 2021. The prefix changes according to the radar detector model.

FYI, I’ve purchased a Uniden R3 as well and will be installing it soon.

Side note on the R3...I bought it for my road trip from L.A. to Florida...it saved me 4 times...I combined both Waze and the R3. The only time that it almost didn't is when I was hit with a laser gun. I had slowed down about 2 seconds before from a waze alert.

Can't wait to do this install!

I've had an Escort Redline (older model) for about 8 years and I stopped counting the number of times it saved me. I plan to order an R3 and blendmount, and mirror-tap for the incoming GTS.

Thing is, nowadays in NJ, the much greater threat is blowing past unmarked state police who hang out in the middle or right lanes and who aren't using radar at all. The vast majority of Waze and radar alerts are for cops who've already pulled people over and are already otherwise occupied.

What we really need are drones with high-resolution cameras and cop-recognition AI that fly a few miles ahead to scan the terrain. With infrared at night. The costs, logistics, and legality would be problematic, I suppose. Ah well, a boy can dream.

Visit their website and you can click through to the correct model based on your car model and mirror type.

I'm planning to use the same "combo". Waze has proven itself many times and in my country everybody uses it, so the reporting is very goo.

Thanks to go.illini's detailed instructions, I just got done installing a Uniden R3 with a BlendMount. The install was straight forward--easy peasy!

Thanks. I used 15. The wire taps will give you an additional inch or more. Since you can tuck the slack inside the console, 20 should work as well if you want more play. 15 was plenty for me.
