    I mount high because I don't want it to be obvious that I have a radar detector. I would mount low to get a better shot at seeing laser hits on my own vehicle but there's really no way to do it in my car that's suitably invisible.

    It depends on what you have. The whole point of laser detection is to get a pre-warning of a laser. Not be a ticket notifier. So mounting high may give you a better chance of a prewarning.

    Also, some of us have laser jammers- so It doesn't really matter if we mount low. Most people liek to mount low & get veil. Detect when the laser is hitting you, and still have a chance to slow down.

    If I didn't live in Virginia, I would mount low. Wouldn't care if cops saw me with a detector in a state they are legal.

    But mounting low is relative since not all vehicles are the same height. Since my car is not high, and the windshield slopes a lot my detector is still lower than someone that mounts low in an SUV.

    I conceal mine for many reasons.

    Cops are more likely to let you go if you do get pulled over
    hard to see so it cant get stolen
    it isnt in your way of the road
    it doesnt put a reflection on your windshield
    get better radar reception in denser traffic

    These are the reasons why I mount mine high...

    Mounted high so it doesn't get 'seen' by a cop who decides to pay more attention to me than normal. It's legal here though, just have the feeling they'd look at me a little more closely if they saw it.

    All detectors should be mounted high as poss they will work better. Got mine in my house bus about 12 foot off the ground it rocks i was amazed how much better it worked. Detectors are legal here Truck/car so i have no fear of the cops its good they can see them it pisses them off! So keep your car legal and you will have no probs. 8)
