The fully flat, single-panel design creates an integrated presence with the vehicle’s front window. Every side of the unit is tapered to the back to conceal everything but the front panel. The back surface has a matte-black treatment to ensure that it will not be reflected in the front window. Bumps and crevices have been eliminated at the joint areas and screws concealed to reduce reflection in the front window and to present a harmonious look with the vehicle’s dashboard. The cradle has been made much more compact and makes it easy to snap on and off. The overall shape is also handy to carry around.
