Hmmmm now I am contemplating getting a rear unit but most likely it will be too much of a pain in the ass to get it installed.

would it be possible to put it inside your car behind the rear glass ? not sure if it will work

Buy a black license plate frame and attach the sensor to the frame, it would be very hard to notice I'm sure.

Did I miss anything over on the mazda sight? I just shot through it real quick, and couldn't find any updates. I sent the PM as per aviators request last week, but haven't seen anything regarding a payment request.

I am going to meet up again and help test out another persons LI in the next few weeks. I still have a spare LI which I can just plug in the extra 2 heads into my system and unplug my permanent install which will allow me to temporarily tape the extra 2 in different places on the vehicle.. let me know if anyone wants a specific location tested.

But so far my install in the most stealthy (behind the grills) and is proven to jam to the gun.

As for rear install I taped 1 sensor to the top of the trunk and it was able to jam quite well at distance over 700 feet, anything closer and you could get a reading by aiming at the far corners of the headlights.

If you want full jam to the gun rear shot installing 2 sensors to the sides of the trunk release should work fine.

But again let me know anything you guys want and I can test it out for everyone.

Next week I will have time and I will write up a DIY install for the LI with pictures and instructions. At max it will take about 20-40 minutes to install depending on if your picky and want to completely have all the wires out of sight or if you dont mind looking at 2 inches of wire.

There's no room there. And if popo flashes his big light on your car (if he decides to pull you over) your module would be exposed.

Did we come up with a definitive answer on the rear mounting location?

I was planning on just putting two up front. Is the general consensus that I will need an additional 1 or 2 units in the back area?

I was just going to go with 2 up front as well, but now I'm starting to second guess myself. I think I might wait to see what the install looks like on the rear. the good thing about waiting is I can always buy another unit later on...I won't get the discount...but the discount on single units isn't that great anyways.

By the way...there's a bit of a tizzy happening on the mazda gb thread in regards to the quality of the LI, or past quality I guess. I'm not believing one word of it, since Andrew has already picked one up and had some great test results.
