    Default Windshield Mounting Problem

    I was wondering if the Black defroster thing or sun blocker thing or whatever that is on the top of the windshield affects radar. I know it affects Laser but what about radar. Thanks

    have been told it does affect it/reduces signal
    also some windscreens have a small tint in them ,this also is supposed to reduce it also

    mount it under the strip

    I know the Belscort manuals say it does reduce range, but I dont think it does... well for radar anyway... Anyone else confirm?

    As long as there isn't anything metallic in the tint, you're fine. Try range against a door opener as a test.

    Ok....thanks for your alls input. I will try sitting in front of a door opener and see what happens. Right now I have it mounted right under the rear view mirror. I may just keep it there but who knows.
    There is no laser in my area thank goodness.
