Escort 8500 Mount

I recently purchased an escort 8500 and had it installed by the people at Best Buy. They mounted it on the windshield, but instead of being in the middle, they put it between the steering wheel and the left side of the car.

I was just wondering if this will affect the performance of the detector at all?

Thanks

Mine is mounted to the right of the center of the dash, just clearing the wiper blade's line of sight. Works like a charm there, I get warned very very early. (Bell RX 65) I just could not get cozy with the thing mounted up high on the windshield, with the cord and floppy suction cups. I hardwired from the fuse panel, fished the wire up though the console exiting the center bezel. The RD covers the wire and it looks very very tidy.
