    How did ya'all run the cable for you SG? I'm planning on putting mine on top of the steering column. For right now I've got the cable ran through the little drop down box above the e-brake.

    I'm hoping to see pictures of other options.

    One piece of Velcro hook tape to top of scan gauge and it fastens to headliner above the mirror.
    Cable tucks in under headliner, then down the a pillar and under dash to the obd port.

    2 screws to remove a-pillar trim. Use a couple tie wraps to secure cable away from airbag.

    I used double sided tape to get mine seated. I am not happy with the look. Anyone have a cleaner solution. I have a Mirror riser so above rearview is out.

    Doesn't get in the way of anything. You can see most the gauges while driving. Ran the wires through the tray below where it's mounted. Clean. Simple. Cost: $0.00

    Mine is on top of steering column with a flat bungie. 4 years no problem. All gauge lights visible. Cable down to right of steering wheel and behind dash. Don't like the Velcro/sticky stuff.
