Superchips traildash security question

So Im in the market for a tuner. And as far as the traildash goes the main reason i like it over the flashpaq is the ability to monitor PIDs and monitor temps opposed to just the plug and play flashpaq. My only concern is the security of the traildash sitting in the dead center of the jeep, especially when I drive almost 75 percent if the time with no doors or top. Someone walking by can easily just see a big screen and pop it out and boom superchips for them.anyone with a trail dash what do you do when the doors are off? I heard people saying you can take it out fairly easily from the dash pod but I mean that's be kind of annoying every time I go somewhere with no doors I can't have my traildash, and also if I unplug it does the tune even still stay equipped if I tuned it then unplugged it from the pod? Any info would be greatly appreciated ! It's either traildash or flashpaq

Instead of sticking it in the pod thing right in the middle of the dash, use a suction cup mount and put it over in the lower left windshield area. Easy to see, close to the OBD port and you can unplug it and pull the mount off super easy and stow it in the locked glove box or console. That's what I do with my Diablosport Trinity.

Yeah I love the dash pod but how easy it is to pop in and out I wouldn't see why someone wouldn't take it. And I don't like that lol trying to come up with some kind of more permanent custom mount but then again I go back to the if somebody really wants something they are going to get it. I just don't like the idea of it being so open and easily accessibla in the dash pod

This, every time or just leave it stowed when you don't want to monitor gauges and stuff

The tune is stored just like the regular flashpaq, you just can't monitor things when it's unplugged.
