Window Tinting & Mobile Electronics: Do You Know Which Films to Avoid?

If you’re a mobile electronics enthusiast like myself, chances are you enjoy making every use of your Bluetooth headset or GPS system (I use the one on my iPhone).  Now more than any time in history, we rely on our mobile devices over the course of our daily routine.

It turns out that our vehicles are outfitted with mobile electronics now more than ever.  And for those of us who live in warm climates, there’s a good chance we’ll want those vehicles tinted.  Here’s the thing: If you plan on having your car tinted, you’ll need to pay attention: Some tints may interfere with the mobile electronics you enjoy using so much.

When window tint is installed on your vehicle, it provides protection from many exterior elements. In order to accomplish this end, there are a variety of components embedded into the film.  While most components will not interfere with your mobile electronic systems at all, there’s one particularly that may:

While metallic window films are excellent for heat insulation, they have been known to be dreadful in cars outfitted with mobile devices.  That’s because metalized particles inside the film absorb your signal. If you’ve ever been inside a vehicle tinted with metallic film, you know this: acquiring signal for some devices can be tricky business.

The good news is that there are many films that will not interfere with signals.  Films such as ceramic, polyester dye-infused and carbon have had hardly any reported issues with mobile electronic devices.  That’s why it’s necessary to investigate the film material in use before having window tint installed on your vehicle.  Wouldn’t it pay to know that (maybe) 15 minutes of research led to a more satisfying purchase? I would.
