If you find a place that works on the car other than the windshield could you please post it. Have been wondering where to put one where it will work and be out of sight. Thanks.
will do, again my first place will be removing the front access panel for hard top and putting it there.. i'll run a few local and see if the charges show up on my account or not.
I could be wrong, but I don't think the glass has any technical effect on reception, I think they just say that to encourage people to put it on the glass where it has a clear line of sight. Many people have reported good results with putting it under one of the front access panels. IL's system only uses the transponder to verify the electronic license plate read, so I rarely have ours in any of our cars without any trouble.
i was under the same impression that glass is not a conductor whatsoever.. again i think its line of sight (but the big boxes can be anywhere).. our system is said to check license plate numbers and run against what tag's have sunpass systems setup... again if my pass works in the front panel i guess we will know 1 of two things
A: it reads thru plastic and not on glass
B: they just check the plate and bill the account.
online it does say if you do not have the correct plate input that they are not responsible for any mis-charges.
The sunpass didn't function for me under the access panels. Just tape it onto the surface you wish to use it on, and give it a try.
Mine ended up on my windshield.
i really don't want on windshield.. rather just run the tolls.. LOL. I'm going to tape it so i don't ruin the sticky.. until i know where it works..
The only time you really need the transponder is if you get stuck in a lane that has a functioning drop bar in stopping you.
Otherwise, at least here in Florida anyway, they do a plate match that links to your existing account.
That causes a proper debit to your account.
thank you, the drop bar's are annoying as hell.... i guess thats a sure fire way to see if it's working (pull up to one and see if opens... if not ill toss the change)
thanx again for heads up guys.
