It may not be a problem, but I worry about the unit cooking under the black cover if I leave it on the car all day. How about a choice of black or white magnetic cover?

We've used these black covers in direct sunlight at ambient temperatures approaching 110F without trouble. It's worth noting that the lithium battery inside the MQGPS modules, like most cell phone batteries, does have a maximum operating temperature rating of 140F. If it's going to be sitting in direct sunlight all day, it's probably better anyways to have it on the roof of the car instead of inside on the dashboard with the windows rolled up.

But prudence is a good idea, and if you can't keep the car under a tent or awning during the day, then a lighter color than black is not a bad idea. The mag mount covers are ABS plastic and can be easily painted a suitable spray paint.

Krylon makes a paint for plastic that doesn't require any prep. That should do the trick.
