I used to mount my 995 low on the windshield, barely above the wipers. I have since moved it up, to about 1.5 inches below my RVM, and immedicately below my toll tag. It is at my eye level.
At the new location, I am experiencing better range, as I pick up my work's YOU SPEED IS K band sign from an addtional 150 feet away.
At the new location, the detector's nose is pointing about 10 degrees down, as measured against a leveler, when my car car is parked in the garage. I have left it alone so far, reasoning that 1) it would be good for picking up laser aimed low at my front plate; 2) It would be good for picking up radar bouncing off the road surface. 3) As the bracket age and sag, it would tend to return to level.
Are my reasons sound or should I obsess with the leveling?
