    Same stuff at Best Buy. Circuit Shitty USED to have them. I got mine at BB and it was like a Transformer with all the pieces and parts you can get to make it hold what ever you have. I use mine for my Sirius too.

    I drilled a couple of holes through that little plate next to the radio (just pops out), used some rubber grommets to dress it up. Ran the wires out from the back to keep everything neat. When I pull the GPS or Sirius out when I leave the truck, the wires are weighted. I put a 1/2" nut on each so it pulls the wires back in flush. (No dangling) I hate nothing more than a "bird's nest" of wires.

    These pictures are just prior to me cleaning it all up even more. Make sure everything works before you button it up. I even hard wired (fused) the Sirius and GPS power cords.

    Have fun.

    Get an aftermarket 12v recepticle. I got a dual one. Mines hid up behind the glove box to the left if you're looking straight in. I ran a hot wire to a constant on at the fuse panel and used a ground near the plug (I think it was part of the blower motor mount) I didn't cut the power ends off the cords though. Never know when you'll need them in something else, unless you buy a spare (they are cheap coin though) Just make sure you can close the glove box without pinching anything.

    Draw it out, map it out, figure it out but put a bit of thought into it and you'll only have to do it once.

    I just took the regular adaptor for my gps, suctioned it to my speedo right in the middle and set it up there. I love having it right in front of me and the speedo is more accurate than mine anyways so no harm done!

    Reminds me a little of Grand Theft Auto.....without all the shooting and explosions of course.....

    it says it comes with three screws to attach the bracket to the inside of the climate control wall. i dont think it comes with anything to attach your device though. i ordered a swivel bracket to go along with mine. ill let you guys know once i receive the brackets.
