So I just purchased my escort 8500 x50 and noticed that it wasn't doing a great job picking up signals. For instance, I would have to be right at the source(traffic signal) for it to work. After doing some research it seems that the solar reflection build into my windshield is causing the interference. There is a small area around the rear view mirror to mount an ez pass and radar etc. to where i have repositioned the detector. I know I have pretty much lost rear radar detection but how much of a hit will it take as pictured? Part of the lens is blocked and the rear sensor is blocked completely. Also it is not level as a result of the e92 headliner. Thanks
