B. Except as provided by R.S. 32:361.1(C), no person may operate a motor vehicle with any object or material placed on or affixed to the front windshield or to front side windows of the vehicle so as to obstruct or reduce the driver's clear view through the front windshield or front side windows, nor place on or affix to the front windshield or the front side windows of a motor vehicle, any transparent material if the material alters the color or reduces the light transmission of the windshield or front side windows. Based on the above statement, in my opinion its not illegal. The above statement focuses more on un screening device or light transmission that may obstruct the drivers view. Anyway your gps must properly installed and protect, share, connect with ESCORT Entourage CIS, the most effective permanently installed vehicle protection system, combining always-on GPS tracking with instant mobile text message and web alerts, motion-sensing technology, and the exclusive GPS Monitoring and Recovery Service option, should your vehicle be stolen.

Louisiana law states that a person cannot operate a vehicle with anything that obscures their visibility through the windshield, so as long as you abide by this you will be fine..

no, it is not illegal. but it is common knowledge that if you do that thieves will see it and break your window and to steal it. so if you want to do that it is best to use some velcro to stick it on your dash. then when you get out of your car remove the gps and put it out of sight so they cannot see it.. if they can see it they will break your window and steal it. like i said this is very common that thieves look for gps units that they can steal.
