Actually, they are not that noticeable from the out side of the vehicle. You could, of course, put it down when parked. A lot of people do that. I, however, don't worry about it. I leave the DashCam and the Garmin GPS unit up on the dash all the time -- five years and no problem (knock on wood).
Anyway, the GPS is only important if you want to watch the video and have the scene tracked on a Google map. Not an unimportant feature for vacation/touristy recordings. Here is, again, the screenshot that I put in the other thread.
I have dual monitors but you can shrink the map down to fit on a single screen. This, BTW, is the Player that comes with the DashCam; using Windows Media Player, of course, would not show all those extra details... only the video itself and the label in yellow at the bottom.
