Traffic LIDAR is infrared and the UV coating wont affect it. If you aren't getting good readings maybe it is too low. The instructions say to mount high. I put mine on the visor or behind the rearview mirror

Mount it on the rear passenger headliner light assembly and use the V1 remote mount on top of the steering column

I know this respone is late but better than never....

i not that experenced with radar detectors but try to place where ever you can higher is better for police cars with k or ka band but in NZ(New Zealand) we have photo radar that has a low freq Ka band that is facing towards the road at under 45 degree angle. for this you would need to place the radar lower to get better range. So decide on what type of radars you are likely to run into and then decide where to mount the valentine one then consult a tinting company if the can cut a strip of coating out where you want to mount the valentine one. but as the valentine is a very good radar it might be able to go through the coating and only minimise the distance by a little bit but i would try it in a car without the coating then with the coating to see the difference and if it is to much or a problem then you could always mount the V1 on the front of the car then use a concealer display that can be purchased from V1's website

My ipod classic says it has 1840 photos and I can see them on the device but I can't get them off the device

Hold down theShift and Control buttons when you plug in the iPod / iPhone to prevent it from syncing, then from the iTunes menu, click on the device under the left panel. Make sure you've got "manually manage music and videos" checked as well as "enable disk use," which will come in handy later as it lets the device appear in Windows Explorer as an external drive.

As far as images go, for all models of iPod, they're found under the decidedly more public folder Photos, so once you've enabled disk usage, it's pretty easy to find. However, if you haven't checked "include full-resolution photos" under your iPod's Photos tab in iTunes, all you'll see here is a Thumbs folder, which contains the pics in the .ithmb format specifically tailored for the iPod screen. If you're in desperate need of these low-res copies, you can find conversion tools online pretty easiliy.

I have an Whistler XTR radar detector, I cannot get power to the unit from the power outlet on a BMW 528 I just bought, the unit worked on my Lexus. Do I need a special cord?

No special cord is required. Does the lighter socket in the BMW power other 12 volt devices? If so, then check the fuse in the radar detectors power cord plug. If not, then check the BMW's lighter socket fuse to make sure that is working properly.

I hav3e a Whistler 1765 unit and when I tried to transfer it to a new car it would not calibrate, even after 5 tries. It was "stuck" on 315 degrees. Then the display changed and was stuck on...

There could be few reasons for this.
1. There is strong magnetic field near the radar detector. This could be even car speakers.
2. There is power lines going above the place where you are trying to calibrate.
3. To complete calibration you need to press both the volume control buttons while the vehicle is parked.. The display will show "CAL MODE". Then slowly drive at least 2 complete circles while in calibration mode. Then again press both the volume control buttons for 2 seconds until it beeps and shows " CAL DONE" in the display.

Broken windshield mount

The same has happened to me. Instead of monkeying with it i got two pieces of velcro. Put one on the top of the dashboard and the other on the bottom of the radar. Dashboards are usually highest over the instrument cluster so I mounted mine just to the right of that giving me a good height like when on the windshield, its out of your way, and still near the cig lighter. Mine works great in that position, I have not noticed any difference in function and it still saves me. ha!
