    I know there are a lot of posts on this topic, but I am wondering if there are any news on this topic.. Picked up my new refreshed Model S 2 weeks ago and read all about EZ Pass headaches.. Brooklyn delivery team claimed that external tag is the only way to go.. Got it, installed it.. Got stuck at the Battery Tunnel Gate this morning.. If it works on some occasions, what's the point of having this monstrosity on my front plate.. Any luck with the inside smaller tag from anyone? TIA.

    The black spot to the right of the rear view mirror is where it's "supposed" to go but I've had mixed success with it in the NY tolls (I have the new small rectangular one). I removed my front plate so the front mount is not an option. Kind of a PITA but hopefully the plate readers work well.

    You mean you took plate frame off? I took that off as well and have black tag sit on top of my license plate.. That setup did not work at BBT toll booth.

    I placed my California FastTrak transponder to the right of the rear mirror stem with the transponder upside down. Seems to work for me at least here in California.

    Thanks.. Can you send a pic? Not sure what the differences are but I'll try inside unit, as I am not sure I can handle external tag that does not work all the time.

    Bbt and rfk toll plaza do not work with ez pass bumper placement. No idea why. Everywhere else does. I mounted it on the interior of the old face mount using an external ex pass. Took me about a month and 5 failed attempts to work through this. Unfortunately, bbt and rfk remain a mystery still.

    Ummmm interesting, upside down? I will try this. Right side up is not working for me but I wondered if the dash cam might be interfering. Do you have the transponder with the 3 switch issued by LA Metro or without from the Toll Roads of OC?

    If your dashcam has WiFi capability, turn the WiFi off. That's a radio transmitter right next to the E-ZPass receiver which can desense the receiver even though it's not on the same frequency.
