    Hello everyone , is there any chance of anyone posting a picture of where to place the tag if you don't have any shaded area on the windscreen my Benimar is based on a 2015 fiat Ducato it's just would be a lot easier to look at a photo of our more experienced travelers set up then get it wrong at the tolls and cause chaos at the peage ,(y) thanks

    They only say place it in the mottled area because if you have anti glare coatings or anything like that on your windscreen it can interfere with the signal. It applies more to cars than anything else.

    No mottled area means no coating therefore put it wherever you like.

    Mine is high up in the centre more or less where a rear view mirror would be and it works fine.

    Get your Mrs to hold it in her hand and stick it out of the window, if that don't work, get her to wave her arm about.

    Just stick the tag on the windscreen ;) :LOL: Sorted innit.

    Hello @Howard H , they don't seem to be particularly fussy where you put it. We have a left hand drive A class Hymer. The tag is now just slotted at the bottom of the windscreen. IMG_20160411_132924.jpg Hope this photo shows it ( just below Hymer info).

    Thanks for the advice everyone will just stick it in the window somewhere near the mirror and hope for the best but if you hear of a motorhome causing chaos in June that will be me :rolleyes:

    In the m/h it is stuck to the windscreen just to the left of the rear view mirror mount.

    In the car we just lay it on the dashboard on the left hand side.

    Works fine in both positions.

    We have had our Tag for about eight years.

    When it was six yeas old we arrived in France and, at the first toll the barrier failed to rise. I don't know whether it was a fault or a battery issue but SANEF exchanged it at their local office with no quibbles.

    For Motorhomers they are great. Prior to having one my wife always found the ticket machine slots were either too high or too low to reach easily from the cab.

    We haven't stuck ours on to the windscreen - there is no evidence that we have one until we sail through the gate. We place ours in a plastic bag and put it on the dashboard when we are likely to need it. Some scrotes look for tags to steal as they can be used for quick get aways so we don't show that we have one.

    We just piut ours on the dash too. The Fiat has a couple of shallow trays either side of the map/paper clamp which we place ours in and I always try to remember to put it in the glove box when we leave the vehicle. I wouldn't leave it hanging in the window. Kind of says please take one.

    We have a large Ford Transit, so while we have the shaded area in the centre, there is no mirror. We've just stuck it where the mirror would have been. Used ours extensively, think it's failed to work twice in all that time and we did the reverse of shame ! :blusher: That was just glitches in the tolls rather than the card.

    On the screen behind the mirror is covered with a black patch as well as some shading. If I use the back of the mirror the line of sight will be obstructed. Can I put it on the screen just below the the black patch. I am not related to any pirates living or dead.:cool:

    just drove down from dunkirk to grenoble. Worked ok at some and had to reverse and creep forward again at others. Wife held it up to the top and lower of windscreen. Used this last year in car and was fine.

    lost a lot of confidence in it and adds a bit of tension to a toll but its convienient.

    We are back from France now and found the tag great ,we placed it as instructed in the shaded area near the mirror but found it did not work every time but at one toll booth a French lady reached into our van took it down from its mount and just throw it onto the dash where it still is and it worked every time after that , so I guess that's the best place for it .

    Our new-to-us MH already had a holder welded to the screen, middle top above where a rearview mirror would be. Bibbit bought in 2010 for our car works fine though a tad pricey and there is no problem moving to any other vehicle as and when required.

    Our dept does not have many km of toll roads so bibbit is rarely in action - just there when necessary. We pay an extra €1 per month when used so not much standing charge.

    @Mattyjwr

    Have you any evidence of this happening?

    Can't imagine why anyone would steal the TAG.

    If you found it had been stolen you would cancel it immediately.

    Anyone looking for somewhere to rob and then make a quick getaway would also have look for a TAG to steal just before the robbery to make sure it was still current. Too much bother.
