Tolltag Placement??

3241 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  jmusaxman
Does anyone have any advice on Toll Tag placement? The thermal windshield does not allow it to read the tag. The garage door opener is also spotty, but I can get it to work most of the time. I’ve had the iX for about a month and other than this issue (and the back windows not going all the way down) I love it. I currently have the tag under the rear view mirror - see pic. I hate to put the front plate on the grill (with a plate tag) so any alternatives are appreciated!

I saw on a YouTube video that there was spots to the left and right of the sensor and mirror that didn’t have the coating to allow for toll passes or garage opener. I don’t have mine yet to say for sure.
Never got this to work with my 407etr (Canadian ezpass) transponder in my 2020 Merc GLE w/ heated windshield. Tried all the special areas (you can seem them with the right lighting) - never better than 1 or 2 out of 10 so I called the toll company.

They (407etr) have an exemption for vehicles w/ a "metalized windshield" - when applied to your account it essentially ignores the transponder and waives the camera fees. Hope this helps.

I have the ez-pass sensor at the absolute top of the windshield on the right of the sensor cluster. Any further down, it was not being read at the toll booth.
