It's a nice feature but it needs to be "live' all the time so you can charge your battery w/o removing the seat. The ATV's have been this way for as long as I can remember. Be nice to set the clock and Altimeter by just turning the key to the on position instead of having to start the sled, just like the ATV's. Plug in a GPS and scroll over it while the machine isnt running etc. i know you can add this on your own but you cant light up the pod w/o the sled running. just a thought.
