I'm trying to mount my camera right next to the rear mirror but then the auto remote command module is just on top of the spot I want to mount. So I relocate the command module right in the center but the adhesive residue from that module made a mark on the windshield. I haven't try using glass cleaner because not sure if those will completely remove. My apology if this is not related in this page.

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
in Australia we would use Eucalyptus oil to remove adhesive residue, not sure if you have something similar available

You see, that spot where I want to mount have those black dots so are you safe for that area?

Just remember to use the smallest possible amount required for the job. Apply with a cloth slightly saturated with the product. You can always apply more if needed. Don't drip on your dashboard. Lay a towel or piece of cardboard down in case of drips.

Mobius x3, G1W held as spare.
I find a small amount of furniture polish works wonders on sticky residue from labels etc.
I also use it to lubricate the aluminium rails on the sliders of my tail-lift

Many of these adhesive remover products have an oil base so certain furniture polishes may well have similar properties.
