I have mine mounted in the exact same location. I don't have tinted windows and the only time the signal breaks up is when I drive under a bridge on the freeway.
I mounted it there so that the antenna would not break up the lines of the car. I see that other car companies have satellite antennas that match the color of the car. Mazda though does not. That is another reason why I decided to mount it at the back of the rear deck.
