Default 9500 suction cup mount...

My response was to the opening question of why one would take the mount out of one's car as, in my mind, there are many, many reasons - mine being frequent car rentals when traveling - which is why the mounts, I believe, are supposed to be designed for easy removal/transfer to other vehicles...
It seems, gleaned from watching Veil Guy's vids, that the "old" suction cup mount - pre Max/Max2 - will work with a Max 360... just ordered one from Escort so we'll see...

They do work, I switch my 360 to my wife's car (Max 1 Sticky Cup) and it works fine.

Default Replacement Sticky Cup working well...

Escort 2nd day aired me a new one, which has so far worked fine, but I'm concerned each time I flip the lever that it will again spontaneously disassemble...

Escort of course gave me the "party line" that it was an isolated defect but the fact that they were so quick to send another one, and didn't want the broken one back, makes me think it wasn't such an isolated problem... Anyone else experience anything like this?
Just an fyi...

Wanted to send a general update that the replacement Sticky Cup Escort sent for my 360, when the original blew up into 4 pieces, has worked fine since October...

I have a long drive from NY to FL coming up so ordered an additional as a back up to have along. With that I now have two "good" ones plus the first "broken" one that works in a pinch if you leave the spring out when re-assembling and are "careful" when flicking the suction lever.

It seems Escort is aware there were some problems with the originals and are sending the "improved" ones out as replacements...

Possibly ? That's an assumption that Escort may not agree with.

Happy New Year!...

Neither an assumption, or deduction, on my part... I was told that by Escort CS...

Default 1200 miles, no problems

Just did a drive to Kissimmee, Florida from Long Island. 1200 miles with the Max 360 and no issues with the sticky cup mount.

Replacement mount sent by Escort has been trouble free and the unit, along with Waze and EL worked flawlessly, thanks Escort Customer Service!

Just received a max 2 Friday and had my sticky mount blow up on the first try. Blow up is the perfect description btw... After reassembling 5-10x I got it to work for two applications to two different vehicles. Then I moved it after entering VA to be more stealthy and it began blowing up again. Never got it to work after pulling over and trying for 15 minutes and tried without the spring. It kept falling. Called escort today and they were more than happy to send a replacement. We're very good to deal with as always. Just think it's poorly designed. No idea why it needs to be able to come a part the plastic tabs don't seem long enough to hold the lever in place. Frustrating but sounds like they are just a few lemons out there and majority of mounts work fine.

Your replacement mount should not exhibit the same issue
