    Can't tell you what to use but I can tell what not to use super glue it will crack the windscreen I was told not to use it for that reason but ignored the advice and yes the screen cracked

    There is a special glue specifically for glass, which worked for me with my dash cam mount

    Ask an Autoglass fitter, or take MH to their depot.

    They are gluing mirrors to windscreens day in, day out.

    The stuff used by autoglass is 2 part. First you clean both halves with alcohol wipes then a layer of glue and a small mesh pad. It really does work well so get it right first time

    I use a monitor intended for mirror mounting. If yours is the same you could do as I've done and remove the mirror head & mount the monitor on the mirror stalk. The monitor becomes a mirror if the camera is switched off - saves weight on the glue patch. In my case the mirror only ever gave me a view of the kitchen so the camera is on full time.

    Lying in the sauna this morning, where my best thoughts occur, whatever glue that original manufacturers use or companies like Autoglass, they can obviously easily remove the mirror bracket when required, how I don't know but it need consideration because if you need a windscreen replacement and the glue you use cannot be 'broken' you will lose your mirror mount and your camera screen, until you get a replacement.
