    GSi Dilemma

    Hi Guys and Gals

    I'm having a touch of a prob with me GSi, I have a Snooper S6R-Neo and a Bel 550, I have used them in past cars and I have learnt to rely on them for keeping my speed down where needed.. but, they dont work with some special type of glass, (anti-reflective or somin) ... so... neither will work in my GSi

    Do any GSi drivers use any other type of detector.. Im desperate to get one that works.. the S6R neo is GPS, but even the GPS antenna cant get a signal, and Im not wiring it to the roof of my car..

    Thanks for any info!

    Think you will find that there is a little gap around the rear view mirror where the black bit is that isnt protected by the special windscreen.

    Pete put his radar dector bit there

    I have a similar bit of kit to LN and also have the solar reflect screen. I use the Origin b2 they are both the GPS types and work really well. Nikons has few more functions, but the Origin is a lot smaller.

    I have the the Snooper S6r Neo also and had problems behind the solar reflective windscreen so I fitted the GPS anntena on the back shelf right at the bottom of the window, only tool a few minutes to run the cable back.

    The Radar/Laser Detector is installed directly under the front number plate poking out throught the lower grill area.

    Works perfect.

    Not all G's have them, think when they do have them they have a black bit around the rear view mirror where as normal screens are blank up there. You can also see a blue tint/film on the screen

    All G's with Climate Control have them not sure about other models without though....I believe most of the GSi's have them with or without climate.
