The documentation I was handed at X delivery said that a transponder wouldn't work through the windshield. Given that, I asked EZPass to send me a front-plate mounted transponder. Neither Tesla's screws nor EZPass's bolts were suitable for mounting the EZPass external transponder on the front plate holder, but less than a dollar at the hardware store fixed that.
I put ours immediately below the mirror, actually behind it. Works fine in several trips Ohio, PA, NY. When took delivery I asked about this and was told anywhere on th X windshield should work, because the early problems related to how the MS glass was made at that time and since changed.Hi, I am going to be taking a delivery of my Model X soon and was wondering where I should place my EZ pass. I really don't want it too obstruct the view. Does anyone have a specific spot that they put the EZ pass?
Even though they gave this to you at delivery for the X I think that issue with the transponder is specific to the S. They have different glass.
I have had no issues with the EZ pass transponder being mounted under the rear view mirror.
I probably read too many trashy detective novels . A standard plot device is for nasty people whose car and license have been seen leaving the scene of a crime to drive to an airport and swap license plates with a car in long-term parking. If you're going to take the plates, why not take the EZPass? It's not about saving a toll, it's about getting out of the area, undetected, as quickly as possible. I never lost any sleep about unwanted access to my Pass, but I'm happy to have it inside, particularly after the rather short life-span of the one mounted on the plate.Who would steal an EZ Pass? Thieves don't steal things that have small pay-outs (EZ Pass might net a couple of dollars) or things where they can easily get caught (there are cameras at the toll booths). Anyway, I think an EZ Pass is very low on the priority list of thieves.
