I have this problem too and didnt want to bother with the ignition on 
thing...so what i do is simply hit the detach button anytime i turn off 
the car, but dont remove the face from the unit itself, so it just kind 
of sits there, halfway in and then all i have to do is push on it to 
re-seat it when i get back in the car....its a simple solution and is a 
habit now so i dont even notice that i do it anymore..
