Interesting. Will see what I can come up with once I get it.

Just use scotch tape to affix it to windshield. Be careful when you remove it. I did it and it worked great.

Can't you just hold the pas near the windshield as you go thru? Know this works for EZ Pass in NY/NJ

If you can affix it to the window in a removable manner then you can reuse it. The issue is that it uses the windshield glass as an antennae so you would need to really play around with it to make sure it works.

The Florida DOTís TOLL-BY-PLATE program is available on Floridaís Turnpike in Miami-Dade and on the Sawgrass Expressway in Broward County, where all-electronic, no-cash tolling is in effect.

I have rented cars in Mia airport many times the reason to get sunpass is when you leave the airport there is a toll (if you are going to Miami beach or on to the 95) its only a 75 cent toll but the rental car companies will charge you a convenience fee of 15-20 per day you can buy a sunpass at Publix or other supermarket chains. Tolls are only charged on the Florida Turnpike if you stay on Interstate 95 you will be fine(just stay out of the express lanes which are never express anyways  ;D)

I got a surpass a few years ago on a Florida trip. Biggest challenge since then was remembering to take it along every time I go.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Is this an issue with PBI airport? If not, and I stay off the turnpike, I should be ok w/o a Sunpass?

I double checked, seems not, but you cab get one in a gas station there.
