    I've just received my tag ready for our trip to Spain and the instructions say that it should be fitted into the dotted/shaded area of the windscreen. The only problem is that there isn't really an area like that on the Range Rover as it's taken up by the mirror housing.

    I know some of you have these tags so do you have any experience of whether this really matters or know why it has to be installed in that place specifically?

    Apologies for the photo, it's difficult to capture against the daylight, the blacked out part is smaller than it looks and I'm not sure I find it would work behind there anyway.

    Well this is a case of "read the instructions" (a very unmanly thing to do). Seems I simply need to mount it anywhere. [​IMG]

    I have an M6 Toll tag. My current car has the 'motlled' area but my previous didn't. It worked/s fine on both.

    I wonder if it's more to do with restricting vision as opposed to signal through the glass. Anyway the better half can hang out the window if all else fails.

    I have a toll tag on both our cars (E60,IS220d). Stuck both up behind rear view mirror where driver cannot see it (so doesn’t obscure any vision). I think both may be at least partially if not wholly mounted on clear glass. They work fine. They actually work fine if you hold them in your hand and point them out the front screen, at about mid screen level. It is a different toll network but I’d guess they all work the same.

    I had a little trouble with my tag and on speaking to the helpline they advised that as my car has a heated windscreen the tag needed to be placed in the shaded area (which it was).

    They decided the tag was nearing the end of its natural life so sent a new one.

    I've got a heated windscreen too, we will just have to say what works and what doesn't.

    My car has option 358 Climate Comfort windscreen. There is a green band across the top of the screen. To either side of the rear-view mirror there is a clear area, intended for mounting garage openers, toll tags, radar detectors, etc. There is no mottled area near the mirror.
