    Radar detector placements and autopilot car.

    Known to me:
    autopilot lower grill sensors impact placement of remote radar etc.

    not known:

    Windshield 'aperture' is occupied by enlarged triangular mirror autopilot camera and rear view mirror base.

    Is is there anywhere now to place a windshield mount radar detector and have Reception? While the escort multi thousand dollar install seems like overkill for my driving habits as the exact situations when I would drive way beyond speed limits are the situations where I will be range sensitive.

    Nose cone ezpass installs: anyone have issue with parking impact crushing the transducer between flex cone and steel beam.

    I mounted my iPass transponder on top of the beam on the driver's side, rather than in front of it. Works like a champ.
