    Default Mounting the V1

    I purchased a V1 and its in the mail... but i was wondering i have a tint strip that goes across the top of the front winshield, will the tint affect the V1 in anyway?

    It affects radar if the tint is metallic and affects laser detection with all tint.

    What type of vehicle do you have? If the tint is metallic, it will significantly diminish radar range. If it's non metallic, it won't hurt radar. It could hurt your laser, but at the same time, the amount of sunlight is reduced by the same amount, so I don't know. It could definately reduce the laser ability at night though.

    I have mine mounted just below the tint strip at the top of my Impala. Check out pictures in this post.

    I have metallic tint on my back windshield and I honestly notice very little diminished signal as compared to the front.

    Is the tint strip metalic? Because if it isnt, it will not affect laser/radar preformance any. If you dont know, pull into a parking lot where it will start going nuts, and then hold it to your roof and see if the front cuts out.
