    I keep mine under one of the back captains chairs. But, I caution doing this if the programmer you have has a battery inside for the memory. Mine has a flash memory so it is fine. But, I have a friend with a Bully Dog programmer, the battery died when he left it in his truck all winter and he lost his stock program for his duramax.

    I would do the same, but, I guess I understand why the op would want it handy. I just think the risk of having it disappear from the truck it too great.

    BTW, I do not know if this is true.......but, I have heard that GM can now tell if the files have been changed. I suspect much like any file, they are now keeping track of file updates (date and time).

    I've gone to the dealer with it installed and the Superchips sticker on the rear window.. Never a problem If something does happen THEY have to prove that the Programer did it...

    Will the heat and cold make it have issues?
