I put mine (I-Pass in Illinois) on the dashboard and it dishes out the tolls and opens gates just fine.

+1 almost same location! Had mine on the glass behind the mirror until I got the 5” tint strip.

We have both EZpass and SunPass here and I was using SunPass for years with no problems but EZpass I was told the money stays in your area and you get rebates so I switched over.
They are awful, it misses all the time and I get hammered with toll by plate (some as high as 16.50 per toll)
I switched back to SunPass and have been fine since. I wonder if it’s the same company as it says it’s good up the coast in other states.

I wish they would just come out with a US wide one. I at one point had 5 different accounts in 6 states when I RVd
When I call them they change the rate back to what I would have been charged if it was working correctly

Correct they will fix and backdate things (that 16.50 with a 2.50 service charge changed to 4.40)

I just have mine behind the rear view mirror. Has worked every time. I have the new smaller one in the pictures above. It's my third one although they seem to last about 10 years.

JK and JL always in the centre dash, never an issue, mind you I only use it every 2 months when I'm in the Buffalo area.

Used it from Albany NY to York Maine, sitting on my dashboard, then stuck it to the windshield on the way back. No issues.

Do you guys not have a sticker? In Florida, we have Sun Pass and it uses a sticker or the old style plastic transponder. Works just fine behind my rear view mirror.
I wish we had a sticker. We have the old school plastic box. I've had EZ Pass since it came out and never had a problem until recently. I had it on my 94 YJ in the late 90s and never had a problem!

Interesting. Has this been an issue?

I have the Sunpass, older thin one with suction cups. I put right behind the rear view mirror. Ive been getting letters from Tolls that I havent paid supposedly. Wondering why now?
See? It's something to do with the windshield. When I called EZ pass the first time to complain, they told me that they recommend the license plate scanner for wranglers. With the JL, I know the windshield is angled more than the JK, so I thought maybe that would fix the problem. Guess not!

The problem I had with the plate one was that if it didn't work at a bridge, I had to pay cash (I never really carry cash). The toll collector told me that if the windshield pass didn't work, I could have just handed the pass to her and she could have scanned it. They can't scan your plate from the booth.
