    I may be mistaken, but I thought Fuayo was one of the OEM sources for LR glass. Almost sure that Pilkington was not exclusive but could be wrong. Therefore maybe there’s something to MY issues and compatibility.

    maybe.

    Incase anyone is curious for future reference, all glass on my truck is Land Rover Pilkington. MY 2011, early production.

    Bit of a hijack but somewhat related, anyone replace their glass with an aftermarket and be able to use a radar detector with it? I too am about to replace some glass. The ONLY thing I don't like about my 11 and 12 L322's is that I can't get a radar detector to work. I was hoping that aftermarket glass would allow for my Passport to work.

    Just for information. I don't know about your 2011 vehicle but newer rain sensing is done by a pad attached to the windshield. We had the windshield replaced on my wife's 2014 LR2 and the rain sensor was intermittent. Called the company back and they replaced the pad and it worked perfectly.

    You have the heated windshield? My guess is the heat elements in the windshield interfere with the radar detector.

    Mine seems to work pretty alright with the stock heated windshield.

    Range seems fine on it too. The only thing that takes AGES to get is GPS (Escort Passport Max)


    What doesn't work on your detector dedbird?

    I get zero range and GPS does not work. It seems to be a known issue. I have tried my V1's that I have retired as well as my passport max and redlines, none work either my 2011 and 2012 RRSC's. Whether it is the coating on the outside to keep the windshield together in the event of a crash or the heating elements, I don't know, but one of them does blocks the radar transmission. I was just hoping that a replacement piece of glass might be a cheaper alternative to a remote install unit which will be a couple of grand. Did not have issues with my LR3's and 4's with stock glass and radar detectors, just the L322's.

    Huh, interesting.

    Does your windshield have that purple hue to it? Maybe it’s some weird coating.

    Not sure but it is the same on both the 11 and 12. I'll need a new windshield soon so I'll just hope the aftermarket glass does not have the same issues.

    Insurance is like all things, buy the cheapest and that is the service you will get. You have to stick to your guns and insist that they use OEM parts. Some claims people back off quickly, others think they are on a mission to save their employer money and forget the damage to reputation that they are causing. I used to think that Geico's advertising was neat, but now? Cheapskates.
