    I'm thinking about buying a Scanguage II for my '01 S-runner but I haven't decided where I can mount it. I've seen an ad for an above the mirror mount but it doesn't look, to me, like there's enough room up there; at least not above the mirror and I don't want the data cable to dangle.
    I've also seen a couple of ads showing the SGII mounted below the mirror but neither ad showed the data cable connected to the guage. (At least as far as I could tell)
    One of the ads looks like they mounted some of the wire(s) through the mirror mounting arm but I can't see how that could be done and I can't figure how they routed the data cable from the guage to the OBD connector without it being able to be seen.
    Anyone mounted a SGII on the mirror? Any tips? Any better place to mount it?
    I thought about mounting it over the steering column but that blocks my view of the odometer.
    I've seen one mount that uses suction cups to hold it onto the windshield and that might be alright if the wires can be routed completely out of sight.
    I'm open to suggestions.

    I have one in my 09 and love it. Will definately change your driving habits and I can monitor water temps and so forth when I am idle out in a field in the heat or pulling a load.

    Mine is on the steering wheel in front of the speedometer.

    I found myself looking at the data too much , so having it right there in front of my face was better for me.
