LET THE BIRTH OF MANY TESTING GROUPS HAPPEN!
You want to know what it is like doing something for the love and passion and not for the mighty dollar then look up GOL!
I simply believe that the RB advice column is out-dated.
Virtually every detector maker recommends a high-mount, based specifically on not only a better capability to catch RADAR by line-of-sight, when the source is, for example, "over the hill," but also would give advantage, by-odds, to LIDAR detection (again, in a scatter/reflection/up-road "seeing through other cars") and avoidance (as in that detection of a "sure hit," via low/mid-mounting, would shift the odds to the LACK of ability to be able to take remedial actions).
Similarly, their arguments of visualization by enforcers and thieves, as well as accessibility of controls and heat-protection, are all also negated by both a high-mount (near headliner), as well as the fact that just about every unit now is available with some sort of either factory or aftermarket muting/control remote.
The RB.com blurb is simply outdated.
