Does anyone know if the infrared shielded windshield on the 2001 7 series affects the detection capability of a radar detector? I know there is a shield cutout in the bottom center of the windshield, but I prefer to mount my Passport 8500 at the top of the windshield where it is more out of sight and closer to 12 V DC access.
