I moved my 9500ix from its windshield just below the rearview mirror in the center position of the windshield to sitting it on the dash in the center position of the windshield. I did this because I found the high placement too distracting.
The only difference in alerts that I have found is that alarms seem to occur at a bit further distances from target with the detector in its higher position.
Am I imaging this difference? Is there actually a significant difference resulting from the detector’s placement from a high to low position?
