I mounted mine on the dash under the rear view mirror, there was a very convenient hole in the dash already that dropped in right behind the radio then i used the wiring from the cig lighter to power that and my fogs, the lighter hole was broke anyway and i anything i plugged in to it just got in the way of me shifting. Works great then just got a handheld mount from The Shaft and put that next to the steering wheel.

Doubt it, if I'm right, which is a 50/50 chance, the visors are still made out of layered cardboard. They're only good for holding vanity mirrors, and maps/papers/etc. Not even a Cobra 19.
