Mounts for TunerView

Suction cup mounts.

I would have loved to stock these two, but apparently buying 100 at a time wasn't good enough to earn a response from their sales team.

If anyone finds a new one that fits, post it up. Smile

I've got another one that works...



Purchased on eBay for $8.49 shipped...

This seller has the best prices and most reasonable shipping on these suction cup mounts. (Some are charging $12 for shipping... Mad )

On another note, I've actually got two more of these particular mounts. One is for the camcorder mount on the top of the dash, and the other is the mount for an outside-type bullet cam, and they hold extremely well.

I do think that if you're going to use a suction mount on the windshield, the TunerView is a bit heavier than the satellite radios they're designed to hold up.

They'd probably work a bit better & not bounce around so much if you rest the TunerView on the dash (or otherwise support it from the bottom) and use the suction cup to keep it all in place.

Just my two pennies. Smile

Makes sense. Thanks for the find!

My monstrosity... LOL

Used the bracket above, but removed the suction cup for a future project.

Through-bolted the "stem" of the mount behind the cupholder, and used the swivel mount to adjust the tunerview.

Looks like ass but the ugliness isn't seen when installed. Smile

Good spot for it. You may want to angle it your way a bit if you can.

It's installed now, and it actually isn't too bad as it sits.

But retaining the swivel on the mount will provide some flexibility if need be.

so by doing this you can't remove it easily to prevent theft then huh? assuming this is a daily driven car. j/c. because i was gonna get a tunerview too, but just velcro it to my dash, and remove it often.

It's fine to use velcro.

IMO I like to leave stuff like this loose in the car so that if a thief decides to hit my car, hopefully he will just take the tunerview and be happy with it, I would rather him be able to grab it easily then rip my whole car apart trying to get it, same with my headunit, it can be pulled right out, no prying on my dash to get it out.

Definitely understandable, but I really don't have to worry about things like that around here. Upstate/Central NY isn't exactly a high-crime area.

Car is garaged 95% of the time, and alarmed 100% of the time I'm not around. (Viper 2way, stealth-install)

I don't drive it very often, and if I'm going into the "city", I take one of the Accords (Mine or my wife's).

The problem I have with semi-permanent installs is that they tend to move/bounce around...

I had a deck that was easily removable, and it would slide out when I launched hard or downshifted to speed up.. Laughing

How did you mount that to the TV? did you take apart the case and run the bolts through the holes from the inside out?

You have to take it apart to do so, yes.
