I recently moved my V1 to the rear speaker deck of my car and it is now covered by fabric (let the flaming begin ) I've had the V1 mounted high on the windshield for some time and it always performed well. I got tired of always taking it down and worrying about breakins. When it was on the windshield the range seemed more then adequate and I was not too worried about losing some detection distance with my new mounting location. On top of this my biggest threat the last couple years seems to be laser and now that I'm LI equipped the V1's laser detection is not as important.
Back to the story. I've been running the V1 concealed for about a month and I haven't noticed too much reduction in range on the local radar drones. I've been waiting for a real threat and today I got my first real hit. Traveling on a country road I got a KA alert where I've never got one before. It kept ramping up and I since I was about +10PSL I slowed down. I finally passed a LEO who was driving in the opposite direction aprox .6 mile from my initial alert. That means The initial hit was probably around a mile away. Felt good to know the V1 is still working pretty good even in its compromised position.
