Formula One Pinnacle Series ceramic window tint

Current temp: Jun 27, 2007 - 11:15 amOne of my concerns for our summer road trip is the extreme temperatures we'll encounter across the continent especially when I look at the side bar and see the current weather conditions in Washington, D.C.--Eek! Right now it's 34°C!

When I was researching window tint for the Subaru, I found that ceramic tint has excellent heat rejection properties and does not affect electronics and reception like metallic-based tints can. In fact, the 2006 Honda Odyssey Owner's Manual states specifically that tint placed on the front windows can affect the GPS antenna.

That was the reason I chose Huper Optik window film for the STI. Unfortunately, I also lost my AM reception because of it. I didn't want to risk any problems with the Odyssey....

I went back to the shop where I had the Huper Optik was installed and found out that they no longer do automotive tinting so I was back at square one. Luckily enough, I found a local shop that uses Formula One Pinnacle Series window tint which is also ceramic-based and made specifically for vehicles to be non-conductive. (I think that was what the problem was with Huper Optik--it was conductive.) I'm taking the van to get tinted next week, and I'm thinking about having the Huper Optik removed and replaced with Pinnacle.
