Laptops i would be a little more concerned about due to the screen, and 
maybe the HD, as far as radio equipment i would not worry about it, unless 
you have a remote head on the dash.

Summertime temps in a car can reach 200 degrees. This is for the phoenix 
area, Tucson is cooler.

I have my tracker on both cars in the trunk/back of the truck for years now 
and there still working fine.
