    Just picked up a Prius Prime Limited, loaded, and has all sorts of sensors and doodads attached. I want to place my EZPass transponder on the front window just under rear-view mirror, but am not sure if it will interfere with the cars sensors, or vice versa. Any thoughts on this? I suspect it won't have any affect, but want to be sure. Thanks.

    Avoid the silk screened black areas you’ll be fine.

    That's where I put it in the Camry, and haven't had a problem.
    Are those ares considered too close to the forwards sensors?

    I just rest mine on top of the dash as needed (which is not often), no fixed attachment.

    I have mine attached right on the black plastic casing of the front camera right behind the rearview mirror. It is totally out of site from outside or from inside unless looking from the side behind the rearview mirror as shown in the photo below. Never had a problem either with car sensors or with the tolls.

    I got an EZ/SpeedPass holder with suctions cups. Nice for trips and doesn’t gums up the windows with those Velcro strip’s adhesive. When the trip is over it’s back in the glove compartment again. Early on I just laid it on the dash but it slid around too much.

    Works perfectly inside the top glove compartment in Gen2.

    Same here, mounted in the black dot area and no problems with it at all. The black dots enamel doesn't interfere with RFID signals.
