If I park at a Walmart or any place in a questionable area or anywhere I don't feel comfortable, I pop my 9500ix out and put it in my pocket and take it with me. I figure with the mount still on the windshield, and sometimes the power cord still in the socket.....someone who has a habit of acquiring these from other people's car will probably recognize the mount or power cord and figure the RD is under the seat or not far from it. (Yep, even crack heads can figure that out.....I hope you did? (It's just a bit too much to take the RD, mount AND cord every time I park....sheeeesh.
I decided to NEVER use something not attached to me like a hand held carry case or anything like that. Too easy to set it down for that moment that will live in infamy.
Who else does this and what "creative" ways have you found to carry it with you?
