I have an issue with one of my cars with Peach Pass (express lane pass), which is not reading properly, but I don't think the film is causing this issue. All my other cars have Ceramic or Crystalline with no issues same for all past vehicles. This car has an IR emitter for night vision directly above where I placed it, so I think interference from that may be causing my issue. I will be relocating it to confirm. I would relocate it to see if that helps or could just be a defective transponder.
Back in the days ......when my cars had comfort film in it, there was cutout up top and Botton in the middle of the windshield to accommodate for this.
So far, in my experience, I don't think my toll pass transponder is working behind Xpel Plus Windshield.
For those more familiar, are the EZ Pass readers working behind Ceramic Tinted Windshields ?
Out here we have many readers that are based on camera reads.
But the ones that are reading the physical transponder, this is where it appears to not be working
I'm still fairly new so i haven't used a lot of film but i started with global and switched to Geoshield and really like that film, but I'm also thinking of trying union film because i have a discount with them. because i took the tint school online course
Inquiring minds want know = other than price, why are you not happy with Global??
Your title asks about the top manufacturers. Well you are not happy with one of them and the only other two choices would be Llumar or 3M. Anything else you go with is still more than likely one of these 3. At least you better hope it is.
