OK - I will try this again - I dont do this often so hopefullt I can figure it out.
I mentioned in my earlier post but as I tried to insert an image I lost everything so I am starting over again. I looked for this info all over the web and finally came up with enough to try to do this install - not that its difficult but I didnt want to fry my detector
or screw up my rear view mirror. I also heard that the wiring colors MAY be different but this worked for me - I cant take any responsibility if this doesnt work for you or damages anything. I am installing a Blendmount from Escort on the 9500ix detector
and the kit comes with the pre-pigtailed hardwire attachment.
The first thing you have to do is remove the mirror from the mount so you have room to work with and dont pull the mnount off the windshield.
Now you have to remove the connector on the backside of the mirror - mine was tight so I used some needle nose on one side and pressed the clip inward and wiggled it free.

The 12v switched power wire is the Pink with Lime Green stripe - the ground is the black with green stripe. Again, I read that these may change ocassionally but I thing Dodge would use common wiring colors for common items. The Blendmount kit suggest sliding the ends of the pigtails into the connector with the positive and neg but I couldnt get it to work so I decided to buy some inline splices for the install.
Make sure you splice all the way to the connector so they will fit in the backside of the mirror. I did slide the wiring cover up and remove the factory electrical tape so I had room to work with. After attaching the splices test the detector
to make sure it works - remember its a switched outlet so will have to turn the ignition on.
Tape everything back up and install the connector bacck into the mirror and hang the mirror. Should look something like this...
The one thing I didnt like about the Blendmount is that there is no horizontal adjustment and my mirror has two pivot points which means the stem is not perpendicular - I could adjust the mirrir to use and the detector
was slightly facing to the right of the vehicle - this pic is what it looks like from point of view out the rearview mirror...

I didnt like it so I used the sticky back rubber in the blendmount kit - cut it half long ways and stuck them together as a shim on the passenger side of the lower part of the blend mount. I know this pic didnt turn out well.

Here is the installed mount and detector
I hope this helps somebody and please let me know if you have any questions.
