I used the same mounting system on my motorcycles. I actually experienced a little bit of improved performance vs behind the windshield of my car.Im using the magnetic RAM mount on my motorcycle and I've not noticed any performance problems ..granted, I have not done any tests but it "seems" to operate the same as it does when it amounted to the windshield of my car
Magnets do not affect EM radiation (radar), in the GRAND scheme of things, like for the purposes of radar detection.
However, my concern would be with the magnet slowly magnetizing the antenna inside the V1 over time, which will happen (leave a magnet on a knife for a month and see what happens). This is the subject area that remains unknown.
Yamaha V-Star 950T - very handlebar limit space.
Mine just turned up as well, the plate is quite large, think I might trim away some tape where it covers the vent holes so there is a small air gap.RAM Mount delivered!
Need to get home and install it.
Pictures to come.
R3 manuals informs users to try not to block vents on bottom when applying velcro for dash mounting.
I will try my best....
