just ordered a V1...sense i'm on the highway alot i thought it would be a good accessory for the car...

now i have one question before it comes. Where should i mount it? I have a 20% tint strip going accross the front windshield....

should i mount it behind the tint? right below the tint? in the middle of the windshield? i want to eventually hard wire it also so keep that in mind.

also the tint strip goes about 1 or 2 inchs below the mirror....

i read on the V1 site that windshieds effect the units effectiveness, so i just don't know now..

thanks for the help guys

is your tint metalized? if it is you may want to consider mounting below the tint, since it may effect the performance. if it is a dyed tint, it probably wouldn't make any difference. just remember that radar detectors need line of sight to work effectively.

i wished there were better places to attach these, esp since were talkin about a v1. ive known 2 people who have had theres stolen :(
2 inches below the mirrror is already real low, but then magnetized tint would also distort things. lesser of two evils
