Hey, any of you that have taken delivery having issues with radar detectors and tollway pass not being able to transmit signal through windshield ? I’m having an issue with both. Pretty frustrating.

not taken delivery of my Taycan yet but here are only 2 options for you based from my own experiences:

1. the use of an external tag and your dealer can help/may need to drill/attach and secure to counter theft

2. try to mount your pass against the panoramic sunroof as a DIY solution.

Thanks. Dealership does built in detectors and we can mount the tollway pass to the front plate (which I wasn’t going to install).

Mount your toll pass in the rear window. We have done this with our 2016 Tesla and it works fine. Doesn’t work well with your radar detector unless you drive backwards.

I will try that with the toll pass. The radar detector is an issue. I drove a different car today and the detector is fine, went off in all the spots it normally does. Yesterday in Taycan, not a single alert along the same commute. No radar can get through that thermally insulated glass, nada.

Unfortunately getting to be a common problem. Bought an S560 Benz to get wife through winter.....no way I could get Val.1 to work.

Yep. I am thinking about the Escort Ci 360. Expensive but pretty slick. Until then I will need to drive at 80 mph max for next few days, should increase my range though !!

John, did you try mounting it up in the little openings they have beside the rear view mirror? That's where they supposedly left the thermal coating off for toll pass devices. My Radenso Pro-M is supposed to arrive on Tuesday - hoping to use it for the rest of the year and then I'll go with a built-in system. I have an integrated setup now on my M5 and it's so nice to not have anything visible. But I want to give the Taycan 6 months or so before I tear off body panels and interior parts to wire up a proper system.

I tried mounting it up high and it doesn’t mount up quite right and I don’t trust it. The car is like a vault, no signal can get in and the garage door opener signal doesn’t even work unless your right on top of the door.
