That install is VERY cool.
I talked to the Valentine folks about hiding it it when I bought mine. For optimal reception, it's got to be mounted as high as possible with a straight line of sight fore and aft. Mine suction-cupped to the windshield just to the right of the sunroof hump. Having it on the passenger side seems to keep it out of the way a little more.
There are a couple other units that remote mount - BEL and K40 both have one. I wouldn't give up my V1 for anything though...
: I saw a post further down with a link to a company that installs a concealed V1 in the rearview mirror. Since I do not live near that install site, I'm in Utica NY, I was wondering if there is an alternative solution to concealing the V1. I was checking out the V1 site and they have a remote display, but for optimal reception you still need to have the box on your windshield or visor. Does V1 or anyone make a dash mounted display with unobtrusive sensors that run to the windshield and rear window? I want the V1 quality, but would rather have the display mounted in the empty tray behind the shift.
