+ 1 on all this.

There is not much too stealing one of these $150 units if you leave it suck there exposed for all to see. Just like a radar detector or GPS. I always pull down whatever electronics are in plain sight and tuck them away for safe keeping and to not provide any motivation for someone to break in. I just don't want to deal with that loss combined with the cost of replacing a window and whatever else is stolen or damaged.

I moved my stereo down to the lower din location. It is still within reach, but requires a little more effort to make addjustments. The upper din location I replaced with a pocket with a door. So when I park the car, I just close the door and my scan gauge is hidden. When its time to go, I just open it back up and use as normal. I will try to take pictures later. I would really like to modify a cluster or dash to house the unit, but I am not in a rush to do that.
