    I've got a Rand McNally receiver only (no display) in my back window. The window does have the defrost wires, but I have had no problem with interference.

    I also had no problem with interference in the previous car where I had it in the same position which also had defrost wires.

    Go for it.

    Someone mentioned that their tint interfered with it.. I wonder if this is a common problem?

    I've got my copilot directly under the dash of my car, and it still works... it loses a little bit of signal through the plastic, but generally speaking, it still works well.

    I also have the Garmin GPS16. Mine is under the dash cap too. Sometimes it takes forever to lock. sometimes it locks right away. Sometimes it really ****es me off. Sometimes I really love it. I just wanna hold it, caress it, pet it and when its not looking kick the crap out of it.

    Damn... that's disappointing. I haven't even got mine in the mail yet. I was under the impression that the GPS 16 was really good.
