ScanGaugeII w/ BlendMount

I was wondering if anybody has used the ScanGuageII with a BlendMount?

Is the blend mount the one that attaches to the mirror? If so, it'll be in direct sunlight and the owners manual says not to put the ScanguageII in direct sunlight.

I was thinking about getting one of those but i'm not sure about the price. So what i was thinking of doing instead is using some of that 3M super adheasive tape(grey & red stuff) and mounting it directly onto the bottom of the mirror then running the wire up into the headliner and down the a-piller. Just haven't gotten to it yet

*side note I put up a sunshade anyways whenever my truck is parked

I'm also possibly thinking about mounting mine on the radio insert kit pocket if its large enough right below my pioneer P5000-UB. Other then that or the mirror there isn't really any other good places to put it especially since i use my cup holders a cubby in the little console.

What did you use to mount yours there? Also do you have any pics of how you ran the wire behind the SG? I have mine mounted up by the gauge cluster for now.

Mine is mounted to my mirror. Due to the OHC it has to be mounted to the underside of the mirror.

No it doesn't, I had my SG on top of the mirror with a OHC.

I fit my ScanGauge under the stereo.
I never finished closing in the edges, but it looked pretty good there.

You also dont have the blend mount. Plus it is kinda crammed in behind the OHC.

if you mount to the mirror without the blendmount, you will still need an extension to reach the data port. Blendmount includes it in the kit. This is assuming you hide the wiring in the a-pillar.

The extension may be a radio shack product. Not sure. The point is this- if you end up spending $20 for the wiring, the extra $20 for just the blendmount with the wiring seems very reasonable.

Agreed the thing is nice but definetly not worth the amount I spent on it.

indeed. Now if it were $25 I would go for one of those mounts as well. It seems way over priced if you ask me
