When I ordered my v1, I also got the concealed display option, but I haven't really experimented with that yet.
I am currently using my v1 without the concealed display and I'm using the cig jack for the power.
I plan on using the concealed display and have it set on the passenger side for when I go on my 750mile road trip. I'm going to be driving half the way and my dad will drive the other half. He doesn't have a clue what the v1 is, and that is why I plan on being the watchmen when I'm in the passenger seat. (I know it defeats the purpose of having a concealed display if i use it in this manner, but I am only doing this for this one time trip, and later on I will hardwire everything into my other car).
1st question: I read in the manual that the main unit will be black off if I use the concealed display. Is there a way to have it so both the concealed display and main unit operational? Also, is it possible to control the volumn on the concealed display aswell as the main unit?
2nd Question: The manual keeps saying
"IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not use Lighter Adapter with
Direct-wire Power Adapter"
I don't need to use the "Power adapter" in order to use both the concealed display and main unit right? I can power them all with the cig lighter power?
Another question, California law says you can't have crap mounted on your windshield, but if I"m from Oregon (with Oregon License plate), will I still have to follow those laws? I am going to have my Garmin 650 GPS and this v1 mounted on my windshield.
Off topic question:
I will be driving from Portland Oregon to San Jose California. Once I'm in California, should I just turn off x-band? Or should I just leave it on for extra precaution? I'm currently using its stock settings. I haven't really messed around trying to change settings yet.
