Escort under tupperware

Has anyone mounted their unit under cover? Does it work and do you lose signal?

You'll lose laser altogether.

If you don't position it with a clear rear view, unobstructed by metal compontents, you will lose rearward detection (important to have when the radar source is coming from behind)

Has anyone installed or had the Passport SR7 installed on a motorcycle? $1099.00 seems like a lot though.

I'm not aware of a radar detector that has a rear facing antennae besides the V. There are some that claim 360 coverage but that is because they have a useless IMO rear laser antennae. You will pick up rear shot radar but you will notice that it is stronger when you are passing cars going in the opposite direction. This is because the signal is bouncing off them and coming back to you.
Hope this helps. Physics, what a wonderful thing.

Sometimes you can get so fixated on the fact that you are right that you lose sight of the reality that it doesn't matter.
