    Someone puts it at the driver side lower corner, and it works.

    Anyone knows if the new "white" tag is better than the old "grey" tag. I know that the white tag is much smaller.

    Thanks all! I tried and seems it work almost anywhere inside the windshield. The service center confirmed that it is a lot more forgiving for Model X when compare to Model S.

    Hi Pandachief, where did you end up mounting your tag? Care to share some pictures?

    (Pls ignore if repetitive) Similar issue here with fastrak on toll roads in CA. I kept my fastrak in the driver's side door pocket. When the toll reader comes, i move my arm out of the way and it beeps. Note, receiver needs to face opposite of what would normally work on a window. I know it's weird, but it works, and keeps the window clean....

    Can we do something like the model s and have it somewhere in the front trunk near the old nose cone? I bought one of those auto toll silicon sleeves for the auto toll but the suction cups are useless and I'm not hugely keen on the crappy double sided sticky tap approach... anyone else with a better approach?

    I wonder whether this would work for HK auto toll transponders:

    Why you said the suction cups are useless? Did you try putting the tag on the flat surface immediately below the lower hand corner of the glass instead of sticking it on the glass?

    No I didn't try that but that flat surface is like a speaker grill right? The suction cups won't adhere to that and it'll just fly around...

    I got inspired from the nose cone instllation for older Model S and installed the tag in the gap between the frunk and the bumper, and I can confirm that it works really well (3 out of 3 tolls just now).

    I can confirm this works for me as well. I placed it the top right corner of the windshield, over the drivers seat. Perfect location, doesn't impair visibility at all and not a hassle to install.

    too ugly above drivers head. agree with Pandachief bottom right corner on driver side out of sight is best.

    Or hide it in he frunk/bumper gap. Easy installation and 100% out of sight.

    Autotoll just replaced all my tags with the new stick-on-label type. Much simpler, and no battery to worry about. Also, supposedly works through Tesla windscreens, and the added bonus is no deposit needed.

    Only drawback is that these are not compatible with the old big-chucky-box style tags - so won't work with car parks and clubs that need those. But, they work fine in the tunnels.

    Just requested for mine. They say to install it behind the rear view mirror where the dots are. (for Model X)
