Why do I need to reach it? All I need to do is look at it when I get a hit to see what band it is. The cig=plug has a mute button on it if the auto mute isn't fast enough for my taste ("auto-mute" sorry you V1 guys aren't familiar with that ) - so it's even easier to reach than your rear-view mirror location.

Valentine 1 gen 1? You guys need to bite the bullet and upgrade to something that was designed after 2000 At least go with the Gen 2.
