So basically, there is no way I am ever driving the speed limit in this car and need some protection for my ultimate stupidity and bad fortune.
I want either a built-in unit (preferred), or one that is very low profile in the car. I did have one that was built-in in my 911 (circa 1999) which gave off false alarms constantly.
My concern with one inside the cabin is that the cord hanging down will be in the way and my wife will hate it. A battery operated one if put on the windshield low is so far forward it will not be easy to silence.
What have owners used for remote mount units? I do not have a front license plate installed so it is not available to camouflage some sensors. I have heard that at least 1 uses blue-tooth to communicate into the main cabin, no clue as to quality of the unit. And i did understand there were issues with positioning through the windshield.
Unfortunately, I am in a 2nd/3rd tier market from where most high end aftermarket electronics are installed (Nashville, TN) and I question turning my car over to strangers.
I probably owned 5 or the original escorts when they came out in the 1980's. But its been a long time since i have been in the market.
I would appreciate feedback from other owners as to what they used and how well it worked.
