Yup, its better to mount it high for that exact reason. Lower is better for laser detection, but till this day I haven't got hit with one, and I don't like mounting on the windshield cuz i have tint and i dont like the dash mount cuz it shakes a lot. I travel from SD to LA and back almost once a week and all the CHP I've ran into shoots out Ka band (I always run into 3-4 of them per trip), but no laser. The day I get a ticket from a laser, I will feel justified to get a $500 range laser jammer.

Oh, and Escort Redline is the sht!! Saved my ass again last weekend on 5 SB. RD detected Ka, I slammed on the brake, the guy that was tailgating me passed me and speeds ahead and ended up getting pulled over!!
