    It's a little work but in my humble opinion worth it.

    P.S I'm very O.C.D about cables running in plan view.

    I got a universal GPS/mobile device mounting kit from best buy then used it to mount it below my aftermarket radio.

    here ya go, very small amount of 3m Velcro, extra wire looped and zip tied, wire hides neatly in hidden void under steering column...Very EZ to reach when doing fuelly...and pretty much perfect spot for reading while driving....

    This is similar to what I did except I found that the vertical mount for the ultra-gauge can actually slip down in between the cluster gauge clear plastic and the black trim on my 04. Then run the power cord back behind the grey trim to the ODBII port for a very clean look. It holds very well and no 3M tape.
