    Toll Express Lane transponder placement

    Hey guys, I am new to the forum.

    Looking for some adivce. I have seen people having problems with their transpoders due to heated windshield. Where do you guys place the transponder so it works every time. I was thinking about the panoramic roof but somebody said it doesnt work sometimes and I dont wish to get fined for that.

    Any advice would be welcome.

    I thought of all these options, and the panoramic roof is not a good place either, even though it will work, but you have to be careful when you close the shade!

    The solution was to call the eZpass in NY and have them send me a transponder that goes in the front license plate, it works perfectly well and looks very stealth as well.

    If they ask you WHY, explain that your vehicle has a HEATED windshield and your transponder do not work all the time, they will send it for free.

    Thanks braz. I guess I will have to call the GA highway people to see if they have such a thing. I drive with the shade open so I dont think it will be a problem to have it in the panoramic roof. Still I wanna make sure it works all the time.

    I spoken to a Friend in GA and they do have the front license plate transponder.
    This is how it looks like.
    By the way, if you are concerned with someone removing it and misusing it, remember that that is registered to your vehicle so you would not be hold accountable for misuse, and plus, for safety, instead of using the license plate screws, I bought a special screw set (two) for USD 4.50 (Four Dollars and fifty cents) and it comes with a special alen tool to tide them in (don't loose the alen as it has a hole in it) so that would make it almost impossible to remove it from the license plate.

    Take care and best regards,
    Enjoy the week ahead.

    I mounted mine between the hood and hood liner. I did it in my previous corvette from a forum member recommendation and it worked well. I haven't been on the tollway yet but will report back to see if it works on the Evoque. Here's a pic of the corvette owner mounting his:
