I dont think I would mount it there full time due to the sun. Myself and a few other guys that I know that mounted their radar detectors in that spot, have fried them. Now lets get some action shots of that thing!

yea it said something about it, but I've never had any issues doing it, I just put one of those shade things up...

I'm using the MPH, MPG, Water Temp, and Intake Temp, so far on a flat road cruising at 53-55 I get ~31 mpg, but man those hills are killer

Serious!? I didn't get that far lol... With 35's and 4.10's I was getting anywhere from 21-24mpg on the highway at 65... Not bad for a 4.0L with big tires and somewhat tall gears lol

yea, you can track the current trip, past day, and i think best numbers. give avg speed distance traveled and your mpg. the instant mpg while driving is kool to watch, till your foot in in the floor and it reads 0. Put it on gallons per hour, and watch how high it climbs at WOT.

When I was using shanes It was in my center console right in front of my tank pressure gauge because it was temporary... Shane has his velcro'd to his steering column right in front of the hazard button... Very handy!
