That is a GREAT point! The Freeways here are heavily barriered which presumably adds interference.Both the R7 & V1G2 are superior in range and filtering to the DSP, and unless you have a rear NR they are both ahead on situational awareness.
Another factor not yet mentioned here is the inherent disadvantage of a low mounted DSP vs a high mounted WS RD. When driving on highways with a concrete median barrier I've observed reduced front detection range, which will affect any low mounted remote RD.
I've had several alarmingly short encounters with C/O on concrete barrier highways, only to watch my rear DSP, mounted high on the rear parcel shelf hold the signal for 20 or 30 seconds or more than a minute on a straight road. This effect is worse in the passing lane and greatly lessened in the slow lane further from the barrier.
I think my mind is made up. Im going to install the TX in the front for a 5head setup, and sell the DSP and V1G1 to get a V1G2 or R7. With nice mounting above the RearView mirror it seems as good as concealed without the hassle of behind bumper mounting
