I do not want to use the bracket that came with the scanner.Don't want to use any screws.

Is there another way to mout the scanner in the car without the bracket?Suction cups?VELCRO?

What scanner are you mounting? You could use velcro, but you are gonna need a flat space to mount it to. I have used an existing screw with the bracket and velcro along the rest of the bracket (where there was no second screw).

Just keep in mind that there is quite the safety risk by not mounting the radio solidly. Should you (put nicely) stop abruptly, your scanner will now become a projectile and risk injuring you or your passengers. Just a thought.

Its better to be safe than sorry. I'm sure there are a few friends who you wouldnt mind getting cracked along side the head with a scanner but I would hate to see you lose your investment ;-)
