Two excellent choices are Escort and Valentine. Both have merits so do your research and either will be a good choice.

Me? I use the V1 and it has served me well. Its like my old yellow lab, always faithful. I am an arrow advocate for sure.

Mounting wise, upper left side of the mirror (suction cups and pre-wired) Wired to turn on when car is running, always on. Not in my line of vision yet visible. Can't use my visor but works for me.

If you live in a laser area, consider complimenting with Blinder. My son runs both on his EVO X because its a LE magnet. If we are running together they go after him and leave the "gentleman's" car alone - LOL.
