Voyager WiSight backup camera monitor mount

The suction cup mechanism for the camera monitor mount got broken. Does anyone have any ideas for creating a new mount for the monitor in a Toyota Tundra? I believe the replacement mounting bracket is available, but it got broken because our dog tries to move it out of the way on the windshield, so another option for mounting the monitor would be preferable.

I bought something like this. You put the magnetic plate on the back of the monitor and then the mount sticks to it. Very strong. The suction cup still goes on the windshield so if your dog doesnít like it - it may not work for you.

In a different thread someone recently mentioned fabricating a rear view mount for the monitor. This sounds like a great idea to me. I can get 12V power to or near the rear view mirror pretty easily and the mirror itself is not useful when the trailer is hitched.

Would be interested if said person chimed in. Iíll be pursuing this solution as time allows next month. I think a couple of metal brackets stuck on the back of the camera with VHB and some small magnets affixed to the top of the rear view mirror should work just fine.

Voyager WiSight backup camera monitor mount

I use a universal phone mount that has a very sticky, pliable suction cup that grips on the textured dash. After a period of time it picks up dust and lint and doesnít stick well. Just washing it restores the adhesion.

GoPro accessories include suction cup assemblies in their offerings. Best Buy was my source, but that was for an older camera. The Voager mount works quite well. I would see if I could get parts from them.

Note - one monitor install on Youtube screwed the mount to a blank plate on the dash of the Moho. They just drilled through the suction cup mount and made it a hard mount for a more secure attachment.

Might check with AS or Camping World and see if they have any parts from returned monitors. Maybe?

Happy shopping. Pat

I too am interested in alternative mounting ideas. I could not get the suction cup to stick to my windshield under the rear view mirror. Ended up rotating the mounting mechanism down and plopping it into my front console cup holder in my Tundra. Been considering mounting it in the nonskid recess pocket on the dash. But, this calls for mounting screws through the dash.

Might look at Pro Clips. They have a variety of mounts for different vehicles. I use one on my F250 which clips on dash, no suction cups and has a magnetic backing that holds monitor.

The suction cup sticks better to the windshield if you dampen it with water before attaching it to the glass.

Thanks to all who replied. Before I purchased another cradle device, I decided to contact the company to see if they would sell just the suction cup portion of the arm (which can be detached separately). They said they couldn't - but rather they took my address and shipped a complete replacement device free of charge. A really pleasant surprise - and I told them so. It's nice to be treated well!
