I have the portable unit with one half of the Velcro epoxied on the back. The other half of the Velcro is sewed on the left side of my tank panniers strap. I clip the controller in place when I need it. Simple and easy to use and I can move it to my next bike when I sell the Wee.
I have the portable controller with the little pouch that they sell. I just leave it clipped onto my jacket during the cold season. For my tastes, the portable unit is easier to deal with, portable if you have more that one bike, and easier to install.
Mine has the portable unit, but it is velcroed to the plastic behind the handlebars for easy access. All the wiring is fed under the tank/seat and if I need to hook anything up I can just route it up to the jacket. Control knobs are right there out front.
Ditto with the portable, I have velco on the tank and the tank bag to keep it in place whatever the configuration is. At close to a hundred bucks, most of us wouldn't buy two of the controllers to satisfy a need.
