I'm debating moving my RVM down an inch or two in order to mount my V1 high.
My car has the blue tint strip as well as the ceramic dots near the center, which I have gathered through searching should not pose any handicap to range or accuracy capabilities. Is that correct?
How difficult is it to remove and reaffix a rear view mirror? I've noticed that right under the spot where the neck/stem sticks to the glass that there appears to be the same ceramic dot treatment on the glass.
As it stands right now, there isn't room to mount high above the RVM (technically I can jam it into the space, but the front/receiving end of the unit is angled down and the controls and rear horn are angled upwards towards the roof), and mounting to either side would prohibit visor use (I hate sunglasses so I do on occasion rely on my visors) and I don't think it would get a very good "view" out the back window anyway.
I'd like to mount high so that I can leave it up when I get out of the car and so that I can add a remote display without having to go through a whole song and dance every time I enter the car of putting the V1 into it's mount, plugging in power, plugging in the remote display, and plugging my GPS into its cradle. If I could leave the V1 alone and just have to worry about the GPS each time I get in or out of the car, I'd like that.
I'm not very tall (and neither is the cabin of my car) so I don't expect there to be any huge loss of visibility if I were to move the RVM down an inch or two. I'll likely also add a Cheetah mirror at the same time as doing all of this other stuff as well as have it all hardwired at once.
