    Lightbulb Where do you mount it?

    Well my sucky cups go up high, off the barbecue dash to the left of the rear view mirror. Just how does your rd see any Lidar from the rear if it's smoking on the dash? Well, there's time for more, but I gotta' jet.

    In all 3 vehicles, I mount mine above the rear view mirror on the left of center but low enough for the RD to see out the back.

    You've gotta' be a HAM. We think alike, and that scares me ;-). I'm really debating a purchase of a 2020 Stingray because they have really shrunk the rear window (Lidar issue here), so I'm on pause unless I can easily mount a rear flank rd to that window, a pain in the ars either way. My Camaro rear window is bad enough, but probably double in size over the new Vette. Take a peek at this>>

    In contrast, here's the 2018 rear view window of my Camaro on the right. Night and day (no pun) vs the C8 Stingray rear window.

    Yes, I do dabble in amateur radio.
