Hey everyone,

I just got a 2010 Toyota Cambry. It was professionally installed by Best Buy. Sadly though they mounted my Sirius SL2 portable to the car vents, but these vents are angled just so that in the day time you cannot read what the radio says due to the sun shining on it. I thought there was a clip they made that you could latch the SL2 onto to fix this angle problem. Does anyone have a link or information about that. My only concern is that I'm hoping I have enough cord to play with in order to put this piece in front of the SL2.

If there is not a clip to fix this are there any other solutions?

Thanks,
DJL

My name is Matt,

Thank you so much for some options for fixing this vent mountaining on the Toyota Camry. My question I have for you is:

Would this Pro-Fit Easy Swivel EZ-1026 work and be able to be screwed into the ent clip that comes with the Sirius SL2 Car Kit?

Thanks,
DJL

It would, but I don't think you would be happy with it. Most vent mounts are pretty flimsey and this would give it an extra amount of wobble and play.

Thanks again for some things to think about it. OK 2 questions:

Is it possible to use this mount you suggested for the Toyota Camry on the vents or not? Toyota Camry Solara 2004-2008 Custom Mount Toyota Camry Solara 2004-2008 Custom Mount


This is where all the wires are located and is really short from what I can tell Best Buy did not leave me with much to play with.

If that is not possible, my next question is would this Universal Vent Mount be stable and work

Let me know what you think. I'm just trying to figure out some solution to this problem.

As for the suggested vehicle specific mount, that would need to be installed where you see it in the picture, not on the vents. If you use this mount you need to use the swivel so your wires have plenty of clearance.

You could use the universal vent mount, but I would suggest NOT using the swivel for this application. I think it will be too heavy and wobble around and you wont be happy with it. If you are going to use the vent mount, just use it by itself.

Also, I do think Best Buy is a good retailer, but I wouldn't go to them to have something professionally installed in my car. I don't trust a place that can screw up in their install shop and lose money, then turn around and make it back on iPods and Wii games. If I were you i would crack open my yellow pages or just do a Yelp search for a local car audio installer. These guys depend on the quality of their work to do business and to stay in business. Just something to think about.
