    However you may be plugging in, how are you guys mounting-using your mp3 players? I had a cup holder mount that worked fantastic in my honda...but doesnt fit anywhere in the Taco. So far Ive just been laying it down in the rectangle next to the shifter.

    Any suggestions and/or links for something a little more...organized?

    There are these rubber pads that stick to the top of your dashboard, anything you place on those rubber pads will not slide off (i.e. cell phone, ipod , etc) it works pretty damn well for me cant recall a time that my ipod's ever fallen off haha

    Kinda half-assed but it also works out pretty well as I can pick it up and hold it easier to get into view.

    Excuse the mess.. this was taken while wrapping up the install.

    Yes
    It sits in the shallow holder next to the gear shift. Cell phone goes in the cup holder and any kind of beverage either goes in my hand or on the floor...

    Mine 80 gig stays in the center console all the time. The cable is routed up to the corner of the console and you can't see the wiring from the outside. But you can also take the ipod out of the console and still close the lid if needed.

    I didn't want it in plain view for someone to be tempted to break my windows and steal it.

    Do some research on how it mounts behind the climate control panel.

    I have a GPS mount that mountes on the upper & lower rails of that same panel. If you're not careful (or have it in a certain place), it pulls the panel out frequently. I've been able to keep that to a minimum - but the company stopped making the mount because of that.

    This is where my ipod sits. I don't need to touch it since the controls are all on my Alpine headunit.
