Question about Valentine One V1 Radar Detector
Where do I mount it since the window has the solar UV coating on it everywhere but at the very top?
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 https://store.valentine1.com/store/
