is the maps and more unit left on display a security risk . should it be removed and installed each trip . if you decide not to fit it for a short journey then the hands free doesnt work .
it does look like a bit of an afterthought .
Yep the stalk does fit in the glovebox and if not parked at work or home I remove the stalk and put the cover on.
Thefts from cars are still on the up and thieves will look for signs such as sucker marks, holders ect. They will smash a passenger window just to get into the glovebox to see if a device has been left in there.
Thanks jezyg, this is exactly why I would remove the stalk as well.
Although, with car radio's, they often know people keep the detachable front in the glovebox, they break into the car anyway. And my insurance company requires me to show them the detached front in other to claim the damages.
