Scanguage II installed

I ordered the Scanguage II from the latest group by and got it in today. I also ordered the Blendmount from MGT MotorSports. When I went to install it using the BlendMount, I realized it wasn't really going to install the way I wanted since I have the auto-dimming mirror. The auto-dimming mirror has a different mount arm than the normal one, so the BlendMount wouldn't have been straight and flush the way I wanted. I could have made it work, but that's not what I wanted.

So, I used the plate that came from the BlendMount and installed it somewhere else. And to tell you the truth, I'm happier where it is! Now, the way I ended up using it, I don't think it was worth the $49 for the kit. However, I made it work and I don't have to mess with returning it, restocking, etc...

looks good man! I like it mounted there. The only problem I'd have is that space is my glove storage! ha

That's a new idea about the location. I like it but when mine comes in I don't think I'll be putting it there. Good spot but I always have something in there. I can't wait til mine comes in. Should be here sometime this week.

Looks good but that location wouldn't safely work for me. I glance at it often while driving so on the mirror keeps my eyes on the road.

Where did you route the wiring to the scanguage. Did you have to drill a hole in the rear of that storage area ?

I just can't bring myself to drill any wholes in my baby...yet....
Thanks for the info though, think I may order mine (scanguage) today...
