Ok, so Mr. Valentine advocates mounting high, however here's my issue.
In my '03 Jetta it looks like if I mount high, its' going to completely obliterate the view of the laser sensor to the rear. The laser sensor would be looking directly into the rear headliner. Fortunately, the last time I had the windshield replaced as a result of a rock hit they gave me one without a sunband. I didn't really use the sunband so it's not an issue and the detector COULD be moved up there above the mirror.
Right now the detector is mounted under my rear view mirror and it seems to do well. I'm going to be finding a location for my concealed display this weekend and I'd like to move the detector to the best location this weekend and shorten the lead wire that pokes out of the headliner.
Is this recommendation based on the fact that most laser hits come from the front and that rear laser isn't that large of an issue?
