    I usually take it all off and put up my solar reflector, after so many years of cracked 900 dashboards I want to keep my pristine one crack-free.

    I remove mine completely.

    The crims aren't totally stupid - if they see the cups, they KNOW you have a detector and they may very possibly break in just due to their suspicion!

    Mine is at the very top of the windshield so you can't see the suction cups through the tint band. It would be too much of a pain to spend time aligning it every time I get in the car when I can just leave the bracket in place. I live in kind of a questionable place, though, so I would probably remove the bracket if it were visible.

    Me too!! I actually have 2 mounts so if I have to take another car, I just grab my extra mount and the detector. I spent quite a while aligning the detector in my car, and I too am very anal about it being perfectly aligned.

    I always remove everything from the windshield and put it under the seat. For the alignment side i want the most out of my RD so i always take minutes to align my it perfectly.

    I just leave everything in there with the top and windows down. I keep my ipod, v1, cd's, wallet and car keys all right in the car everywhere. :wink:

    In all seriousness I do usually keep my v1 in the car, but I put it in the glove box w/ my ipod if I keep my top down. If I put the top up, I just leave it because its clipped onto the visor and you can't see the V1 at all.
