now i know this is a bad idea and i wouldnt ever use it, unless i had to. but i'm just wondering if putting your detector on your dash and having it partially blocked by wipers is a very bad idea. does it actually has much of an effect on a detector like my bel v995? i tried it today when i was following my parents home. they arent crazy about detectors so i keep mine hush-hush around them. but since my dad was doing about 10 over on the way home, i figured that putting my detector on the dash above my vents in my grand am would be better than nothing. when i dont have a detector, i dont excede 5 over. simply becuase i know that if they see a high school kid doing more than 5+, you'll get a ticket around here. it seemed to pick up the usual falses a tiny bit later than normal (maybe a second or half a second). i know it wouldnt detect laser but i've never had a laser hit on the roads that i'd be on.
heres a picture of where the detector was in the car. it was in the crook between where the gagues are and the vents. it si about the same level as the wipers. this isnt my car by the way:
