Most likely depending on the time and place, you might. I have mine mounted directly above the mirror. I have gotten one cuz when i went to some street racing thing, cops were ****ed of that night cuz some dude got killed the last time and there were out in full force. Anyway to make a long story short, it was 2:00am in the morning and there were chasing and looking for excuse to write someone up. As soon as i decided to leave, the blue and red lights came on. This is where i went wrong. Cop asked.....Sir is that a TV screen up there. I responded yes, but it not exactly a TV....blah blah..... He almost didn't give me the ticket but since i had no excuse being there that night and he already called it in, he gave me a $40 ticket. About a month later, i was in DC picking up one of my friends so we can go to the track. I sported the cop hiding in some corner, just waiting for someone to speed by........red and blue lights came on.... Cops question. Are you from the DC area....what a stupid question, my plates should have told that bone head NO. Anyway, sir, is that a TV.... and i responded, No, it is a GPS and Audio and Car Diagnostic device...oh, but in the state of DC/MD, it is illegal to have any type device in the drivers viewing area (or some crap like that). Yes i know, but i really can't see it....blah blah. Took my license, when back to his cruiser...came back gave it back to me and then proceeded to ask me more about the system....boy was i laughing real hard inside. Anyway, he didn't give me no ticket cuz it wasn't a TV, there was no movie or TV station on at that time.
Quite a few times i have seen county police and even state troopers pull up behind me or at the side trying to figure out what it is. They prolly thought it is a GPS system. Some have actually during a red light ask me how much it cost me to have that install and what it is.
So to make a long story short, when asked the question, is it a TV. You better not say yes cuz that will now give them the excuse to write u up. First off, they did not see any movie or TV station. And make sure u mention it is a GPS or Mp3 system. One other thing, which ever app u are using, i hope it has the ability to switch between GPS/mp3 really quick, this way, if they want proof, you can toogle back and forth. This was something i added to cobra. I might even add a fake GPS screen for ppl that want that. I hope i didn't bore anyone with this long novel
