That's where mine is - I'll post up some pics later today or tomorrow.

I took the screw out and turned the visor around so it flips down toward the windshield instead of down toward the mirror (hope that makes some sense?) then flipped the visor down and velcroed it to the part that screws to the head liner. This way the mini visor shades the SG from the sun. The only downside to this is that it's a little hard to read it since you're not looking at it straight on, but I think that's the case any where you mount it that far to the right of the driver. It's readable, just not quite as sharp/clear as it is straight on. I've had it here for a few days and like it. I got a 10 ft network patch cable and a female/female connector from RadioShack. I'm going to run the patch cable from the scangauge, under the headliner, down the A-pillar and to the OBD2 connector. The Scangauge cable will then be coiled up right there and plugged into the female/female connector and OBD2 port. This way I can still take it out easily for use in another vehicle without having to undo all of the hidden wiring.

It will fit up to the mini visor with the cable that comes with it, however you will have a cable running across the dash near the headlight switch and down to the OBD2 port.

Enough talk, needs pictures.

No good place to put it
