I like the looks of them on the dash, but I just don't have the nerve to cut into it and put one there. You guys have any problems with it? I was thinking of going the same route as htjunkie, and putting them on my mini console.

I had mine on the top of the "consolette" but behind the pocket. They were not super easy to get to, but I didn't need mine to be switched all of the time.

Behind the case thing in this picture. (thanks Quasi242's)
