Best way to mount an easy pass transponder on a sprint gt

What is the pass way to mount an easy pass transponder (2011 sprint gt, Pennsylvania, USA dmv transponder)?

I have heard someone say that they just put it in the glove box and it gets read without any troubles, but the guy at the dmv said that it has to be mounted on the control panel or wind screen to be read properly.

Somewhat related, I am also looking a good, convenient, mounted garage door opener. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Double stick tape, glue. I guess drilling a hole and screwing it on, or using velcro would be options also.

I had mine hidden inside the left fairing on my RS; worked for about a month and then didn't. The only thing that worked fairly consistently was having the damned thing velcroed to the windshield. Also, when velcroed to the windshield, it's easy to pull off and hand to the attendant if necessary. The über-Velcro they send you is pretty good; mine only fell off once, on some bombed-out looking, cratered up road in the Bronx. It got run over about five times before I could retrieve it and still worked after. (Well, as well as it did before, anyway.)

Cheers,
-Kit

I am that someone. I have it sitting in my glove box, horizontally, right side up (MC sticker).

Have never had an issue with it. Try it before you start investing in an intricate mounting solution.

I nearly always have a small tank bog with me to hold house keys, wallet and other things I do not want in my pockets while riding. I just put the transponder in the tank bag positioned about the way it would be on the windshield, never had any problems.
Granted I do not do this often, hate taking the roads that need the toll transponder. Boring with crazy drivers.

I had my EZ Pass mounted to the inside of the left fairing as well. Worked great! No one knew it was there, so no chance of it getting stolen.

+1 This is what works for me. So far never a problem.

I attached mine to the windscreen with the 2 pieces of Dual Lock, that came with it.
I have a flash 2 pass for the garage door opener.
The previous owner had the EZ Pass in the compartment to the right on the dash but when I put mine there it had issues with some toll booths.

I have mine duct taped to the backside of the panel behind the windscreen that covers tha back of the gauges. Yes, it's behind 2 layers of plastic. Yes, it reads every time.

Every bike I've had an E-Z Pass on, I mount it behind the fairing, above the headlight. This is third one and I've had no issues with it.

Totally hidden so it won't get stolen.

If by some chance the booth can't read it, don't fret. They'll take a picture of your bike, plate included, and if you have an account with that plate they'll just bill you and you'll never know the difference.

I don't know if they've changed their policies, but when I was in the city the Holland Tunnel toll plaza issued a violation if your tag didn't register. Giant PITA and a big difference from just a toll.
