I was wondering the same but have not tried it yet.

On my return trip from taking delivery I had my EZ pass with me attached to the windshield. It fell off midway home on my 1100 mile trip and I still have not located it. I have looked everywhere for it. The cab area just swallowed it up.

In my Seneca it is affixed to the bottom center of my windshield, just above the dash pad. Works great there, I have never had any issues passing through numerous state's toll booth or the newer highway speed reading lanes.

I got one which mounts to my front license plate. Works great and avoids issue of having it under cap. It is what my ez pass recommended to not have an issue.

For the past 3 years my 2016 Grayhawk has had the EZ-pass transponder mounted on the windshield behind the rear view mirror with out a problem.

I was about to go this route for my unit, but then the issue of a separate pass for my toad came up with the I-Pass representative I spoke to. She told me that when towing I should remove the towed car's pass and wrap it in several layers of aluminum foil to prevent it from confusing the readers when being towed. Then upon arrival at a destination where car pass use might be needed, unwrap it and replace it on the windshield of the car.

Not wanting to deal with all that, I just remove it from the windshield of the Seneca at arrival and put it in the car. Based on my online account, every state seems to have no problems correctly counting the additional axles of the towed car and billing me for them!

P.S. I live in Ohio (an E-ZPass state) but I got my I-Pass before Ohio ever adopted E-ZPass. And I have close family in Illinois and travel there frequently. Plus Ohio initially was charging a monthly fee just to have E-ZPass, but I think they stopped that.

We don't have a rear view mirror but we placed our EZPass at the base of the windshield and it works fine. Now if I could just convince the toll collectors that they shouldn't ring up our toad as well each time we zip through the EZ Pass lane . . . .

I think the 'put it behind your mirror' instruction was written by safety lawyers who don't want to be accused of interfering with your field of view.

Rick - Do you have a separate pass in your toad?
