    Default Magnet Mounts

    Do Magnet Mounts make scratches on your vehicle, and are they prone to theft?

    Try to read the entire Wilson website, very interesting stuff, very educational, Wilson antennas are the best in the world 8)

    But besides reading, and hopefully learning something, using a lot of common sense makes your life way easier :wink:

    You never know, Rob :roll: for people keeping their vehicles overnight in a public parking lot (my case) the best is to take it off when you get home, leave it inside and put it back on in the morning... same as I do it with my new XM sat radio, I take its antenna (looks like a little black shell) off, put it inside by the sun visor and in the morning back on, also I take my sat radio with me overnight... you have no idea how much people enjoy getting free stuff off people's cars :x

    i know its not exactly something with high value on the market for theft,,, but i was just wondering if it really is that unlikely,....cause i know people steal almost everything.

    i had a magnetic mount antenna for a while and took it all over ATL, MARTA stations, Philips Arena, Underground whereever, it never got touched. but im not saying it cant happen. however, they might get the antenna part, but theyed have to cut the wire, which would make no sense.
