Backwoods81 Nice mounting spot Taigablues. One question though, do you hit your hand on it all when turning or using your wipers? Just curious because I REALLY like this spot. Haha

my gps on dashboard

Since buying my jeep a few weeks ago, i could'nt really find a neat place where to install my magellan gps on the dashboard (there is not that much place anyway). (I don't like the suction cup gizmos you install on the windshield and i did not want any screws in the dashboard...). So i conveniently placed it to the right of the steering wheel. Cut out a piece of sheet metal, worked at it a bit and then a few velcro strips did the job.

It ain't perfect, but it's functional !
