We rented a car and it had a pass built into the front window. All you had to do was to push the pass level to activate it. Worked going through tolls until you get the rental bill and see a $25 toll activation fee plus the toll charge!
I am not sure if the $25 was for the weekly rental or a day fee.
I wont do that again!

Interestingly, while they claim the mini-pass transponders have to be attached to your windshield to work, I did an experiment with one just taped to the inside of a windshield. It worked just fine for some time, and i was even able to swap it between vehicles on several occasions. If you set up an account with SunPass and do the pay by plate option, they don't ding you for admin fees. You have to enter your plate number in their system and set up a payment.

The SunPass sticker is $5.
