Also, Garmin mentions that in some states it's illegal to stick suction cups
devices on the windshield.  I know CA is one.  They make abean bag weighted
unit for some of their units to get around that issue.

You can disable this safety feature, I believe, although I've never
tried it myself. I think it's in the FAQ on priuschat.com.

You can disable it only on 2004 and 2005 models.  Toyota removed that
back door in the 2006 and 2007 models.

Support the troops:  Bring them home ASAP.

That raises the question  of what happens if you have a 2004 or 2005
model but upgrade to the most recent DVD.  Can you still disable it, or
does the upgrade effectively mean you have a 2006-07 model of the GPS?

My guess is the DVD only updates the database and the interlock is in
firmware :-(
