MOUNTED WAY TOO LOW
id give it like a 3 or a 4............. little higher and youre good to go
blocked by the wipers is very very bad
sorry but the pics arent that great either, a little more light and theyll come out alot better

I SWEAR it goes right under the wiper, which I tried to show in the first picture.
Are all of the other users on this forum going to say this is too low as well?
negative. for the best radar performance, it needs to be as high as possible, without being interfered by a metallic tint strip or something. and you definately dont want it behind the windshield wiper. the stealthness of the install i give a 7. but the performance, i give a 3. 8)
Maybe maybe not, im known to be a picky little perfectionist by many of my friendsOriginally Posted by Beyond
but thats just a bit low for me, id go higher, or even mount it HIGH by the RVM, something like that
*EDIT* There see, another one agrees with me, its a bit low for good performance, we go low for Laser, but at that low Laser is blocked out too, so it defeats the whole purpose, and from what I can see in that pic, I think the rubber blade part of the wiper is right in front of it
Does that not drastically degrade the laser performance?
To be honest, I believe it will but I have read storys of the X50 picking up well from a high mount. I must say I'm lucky, Laser isn't used in my area. I had mine mounted low for about a year then moved to a high mount. here are some photos of my low mount. Always make sure your detector is mounted above the windshield wipers.Originally Posted by Beyond
Here is the link of the High Mount Story.
just a little higher c'mon you can do it. I also advise to hardwire high, it increases over the hill range, but most likely won't increase on axis detection by much
