    Default Placement of escort 8500 X50

    Is it best to place the escort 8500 X50 radar detector just above the windshield wipers (with clearance of course) or place it higher up on the windshield. What is the advantage/disadvantage of placement?

    I'd say read around the forum before asking questions... this has been asked time and again

    but here it is:

    LOW: better Laser detection sacrificing some RADAR range

    HIGH: Stealthier, better RADAR range, sacrificing Laser detection
