    Default Thoughts on placement

    I spent hours finding a non-distracting, yet effective location for my RD and came up with this, the suction cups are right below the tinting, this should be as effective as anywhere in the middle, right?

    I'd say that looks good, assuming that you aren't using veil or a lasershield.

    I need to get some VEIL when I've got the money, although I haven't found LIDAR used in Louisville, I only get falses near the airport that annoy my girlfriend.

    What would VEIL do to my detector's location? I thought it was only used on reflectors, lights and plates.

    It depends what detector you have if you have the V1 mount is high due to the amazing laser sensitivity but if not stay low to mid windshield to make sure you pick up the laser alert and have time to react

    Yeah, thinking about replacing it with an 8500 X50 once I can get something hardwired from the roof.

    I'm wondering, if I got the Shifter ZR3, would that provide enough sensitivity to not lose laser effectiveness where it's currently located? Honestly, while I'm concerned about laser, I'm probably more concerned about radar sensitivity at the moment.

    The ZR3 will act as a jammer as well as a laser reciever and if you got that(jammer), the current position would be prefect for your detector if you have a Jammer...But jammers alone aren't that effective...it's the Lasersheild plate cover and VEIL which how the jammer be come very effective

    Yeah, I plan on going for the VEIL first. Is a Lasershield plate cover even useful on the rear? We don't have front plates here. Otherwise, I might go for one of those, too, since photo radar is illegal here and therefore I wouldn't really need a Super Protector.
