    GPS Flashing Red Light (Can We Disable It?)

    Just curious if there is or are plans for a enable/disable setting for the red beacon.
    I can only see it at night but its viewable in my mirror. If it were on my dash I would have to cover it.
    I'm not sure if its going to bug me too much if at all but I wanted to ask.

    No, it's part of the operation of the GPS antenna and can't be turned off.

    I decided I like it. I put a patch of tape on top because it projects up and forward. The upward reflects off the glass giving me two lights to look at.

    Anyways I discovered it only comes on when connected and I want to know that. Its not too bright either.

    I take it if for some reason the GPS does not lock the system is armed for defense at any speed until it locks?
