    i know below the spedo and i have read in a build about the rear view, but i would like to see some pics of places you have put them. so if you have some pics i would love to see them :)

    thanks so much

    I was thinking about putting it below the radio. I don't care for the seatbelt/airbag/clock display thingy so I thought I might be able to take that out and put the scanguage in there. I have to wait until after christmas to try it out tho... (hopefully ;))

    Pb did a neat install putting the SG behind the compass display in the ceiling console.

    Sorry no pic.. mine sits on top of my steering column. I use it a lot when towing to look at fuel usage and I like it to be readily visible without having to look around.

    I used the velcro from the package and stuck it on my rear view. Mine is the non-dimming kind. Also fed the cable up thru the A-Pillar like Roland & others have talked about. Used a flat blade & phillips to do that. Easy install. I like it.

    I did mine on the steering column so when I looked at the instruments it would be in view as well. I don't like having to look different places if I can see what I need to see in one spot.

    How is everyone running the cable from the OBD connector to the Scangauge??? I've got mine sitting on top of the steering column right now with the excess cable sitting in the coin pocket on the right side.

    I've never really liked the way the scangauge looks, so I decided to put it in the flip-down cubby to the lower left of the steering wheel. That way, passengers don't see it, and if I don't need to look at it, I can close it.
