SunPass / EasyPass Window Mount (Do or Don't)

I had to get on the toll road yesterday and realized what a pain, it was, to stop at the toll booths. I went and bought my window mount SunPass transponder yesterday. I was going to stick it to go ahead and attach it to the wind shield, but started to second guess it.

Has anyone stuck one of the transponders to the wind shield yet? If so any unforeseen issues I haven't thought about yet?

Keep mine in the glove box. Through it on the dash when needed.
However it sounds like you have the thinner sticky type; that sticks to the wing shield. If it was mine, I would not stick it to the wind shield. Just my opion.

I attached my EasyPass to my windshield. It's stuck on the black/tinted box in the top middle of the windshield. Works just fine.

I am having buyers remorse. Probably going to get the suction cup. At least it was only $5.

I stick mine to my window. I also have the Mini. It's much easy than having to pull it out of the glove box while driving up to a toll booth.

Stick it on. This isn't a one off Lamborghini museum piece. It's an every mans Camaro. We tend to take these things way way overboard. Mine is on the windshield works perfect and i never have to deal with again. You need it removed later. Simply peel it off and remove residue. Not like it's going to break the car or somehow diminish it's value.

I have the suction cup version of the Unconstitutional Double-Taxation Pass, but I leave it on the floor. Then, when I travel through a toll, I just hold it up under the mirror and it works. No suction cup marks and nothing in the windshield...

If you have the decal style and you want to be able to move it from car to car apply the decal sun pass to a small piece of clear plexiglas your problem is solved so you don't need to stick it to your window.

We had our little Sunpass sticker on within a week of getting the car. If you go through tolls rather often I'd definitely recommend it. Stopping at tolls suck.

I painted my black and Velcrod (black also) it right behind the mirror. With it black you barely notice it.

Luckily I don't hit the tolls too often so I just deal with the hassle of getting a dollar out.

On the plus side.. it sure is fun to get up to speed and merge into traffic after stopping to pay the toll. Most of the time I'm not going through the tolls during rush hour and I get 0 to 60 in just about the the published time!

lawd... it is just a sticker. It says on their website to put it high. Not true.. You can put it in the far bottom right at the very, very bottom corner of the passenger side and you will never notice it. I did that to my wife's Lancer.

I have that airblue tint on my windshield so I can not put anything sticky on it... otherwise I would have gone with the mini.

The mini CAN be removed if you change your mind... you will damage the transponder if you remove, but who gives if you were going to trash it anyways.

I purchased the portable, painted it black and mounted it using Velcro behind my mirror on the built in black tint it can't be seen when your in the car or from the outside and it works 100% of the time. Never had a misread.

Same here, stuck it right next to mirror mount, not intrusive, you cannot see if from the outside.

I use the box style one so I can move it to whatever car im driving. I just set it on the front speaker when im on the expressway. just had family staying out by the attractions and was able to throw it in their rental for the week so they didn't have to stop and pay any tolls. rest of time it rides nicely in the driver door pocket
