Window tinting


Recommended Posts

Hi. I am considering having the windows of my Camry tinted. As the GPS and radio aerials are in the rear widow I was wondering if there is adverse affects to the Gps and radio. I would like to hear from members that have done it or know of the affects of doing same. Many thanks Tocag.

I think it depends on what kind of tint is used. There is a tint that contains metals, which may interupt radio frequencies but most places don't use that kind of tint.

That's what i've heard anyway

Thanks for your replies. I will have to make sure of the tinting contents Tocag.

My dad's car has 35% tint all around. He has GPS and dimming rear vision mirror. From what i've experienced, it doesn't affect the GPS signals. I've yet to drive his car at night though...

I have 20% tints on all my back passenger windows and rear window. From the outside, you can barely see inside of my car but. i can still see through them clearly from inside. So my guess is there won't be much difference to having both tint and dimming rear vision mirror
