    I never thought about the disc being an issue. I know they might see the dock itself and break your window looking for a gps. If you keep removing the disc from the dash, won't the 2 sided tape lose it's ability to hold the mount securely? Get a suction cup dashboard bobble head and put that on the disc when you're not using the car mount.

    I actually had a worse problem with my disc. I used the alcohol swab on my dashboard, let it dry, then stuck the disc on. I let it "cure" for 24 hours before using it. One morning when I came out I noticed my dock was on the floorboard. I thought, "WTH?" and looked at it. The disc was still attached to the suction cup, but had come off the adhesive. Yes, the adhesive was still on the dashboard, but the disc seemed to have slid off. I reattached it and it stuck just fine. I used it all day. The next morning I came out, and the same thing had happened! Now I just have it attached to my windshield and have had no problems. Thank god it didn't fall off when my DX was in it.

    i live in florida where the sun is merciless and on my G8 there is a spot off of the dash that allows me to place the Disk perfectly but in the sun it still comes undone and its still on a flat smooth surface. i dont think there is an adhesive other than crazy glue thats gonna hold the mount in place so i just flip the tab and lay it on the floor anytime i get out of my car.
