A GPS unit on a bike is highly visible from a distance. You don't even have to approach the bike to see that there is something valuable on it. The thief can immediately asses the risk of stealing the unit and its value.
If a bike is covered, then the thief doesn't know immediately if there is something to steal. Lifting the cover to check the bike for valuables is a bother and a risk: it takes time, the cover is usually filthy, and there is a possibility of triggering an alarm. Without knowing if the bike has any stealable parts, I'd say some people will hesitate to take these risks with the cover.
