Default Clear bra over front logo?

Hi!
I just bought a 2019 CX 5 Grand Touring and love it so much that Iím getting a clear bra installed in a few days. I was wondering if anyone knew if installing Xpel over the large front mazda emblem where the radar cruise control sensor is would interfere with that function? I just picture that flat plastic getting a lot of chips and would prefer to protect that as well.

Thank you in advance!

The logo has sensors located inside for the radar cruise control and smart braking. I would hesitate to put anything on it.

I'm an engineer and do EMI certifications. The materials used for the clear bra should have no impact to the sensors. My car goes in for a Clear Bra on Tuesday. We'll see if they cover my Mazda logo.

Note: if you do cover it and feel it is hindering the performance of the sensors, Clear Bra is just a big decal and you can peal it off pretty easily.

I had Xpel put on the front end of my 2019 Sig. It covers front bumper, 24" of hood, headlights, mirrors and door edge guards. I did not have the emblem covered. I don't know if covering it would affect operation of the radar, etc. I wasn't concerned about rock chips on the emblem since it's plastic and not painted red like the car is. I waxed it however when I waxed the car the other day. The car has zero chips but I only have 400 miles on it so far..
