Question about where to install a V1

Got my V1... If I put it just to the passenger's side of the rear view mirror, is that a good position? I can get it so it's below the little bit of tint in the front - but will the rear sensors have a good "view" out the back there?

thanks

as long as the sensor isn't facing into the back of the rear-view mirror, you're fine. or, in other words, as long as you can see the back of the unit when looking through your back window you're golden just make sure that it's below the tint band

Why not put the display IN the rearview mirror?

I have mine hardwired to the right of the rear view mirror. As everyone said, as long as it can see out of the back window, you're fine.

my thought is that if the unit is right by the mirror, why would you really want to put the display inside the mirror?
