As the title states, Im looking for new ideas where and how to mount my Scangauge 2. The velcro I am using keeps falling off in the heat and I'm looking for a more permanent solution.

I have mine mounted just a little above that, On the lip at the bottom of the gauge cluster. Cable runs down in behind the wheel and is coiled and zip tied. I have Engine load, Volts, EGT, and water temp on mine.

What is CAT? is that another exhaust temp reading? I could never get my boost to work right. The Numbers always read in the 50's.

Best thing I could have ever purchased.

I don't know if all of these are the same on the Jetta, but here is my programming on the Passat:

EGT1 (pre-turbo): This is useful for monitoring warm-up mode and temps going into the turbo. This will change very rapidly as you change the accelerator position.
TXD: 07DF0178
RXF: 054106780000
RXD: 3810
MTH: 00090032FFD8
NAM: EGT

CAT B1S1: This is useful for monitoring regeneration activity. Anything over 1000F is a regen.
TXD: 07DF013C
RXF: 0441053C0000
RXD: 2810
MTH: 00090032FFD8
NAM: DPF

Boost pressure: This is useful for monitoring boost pressure. You should see 0 PSI with the ignition on and the engine off. You should see a max of 23.0 PSI on a stock tune.
TXD: 07DF0170
RXF: 054186700000
RXD: 3810
MTH: 00910BB8FF64 (for sea level - you'll need to adjust the last 4 digits if you live at altitude in order to get to 0 PSI with the ignition on and the engine off. Also note that the baseline will change with atmospheric pressure as you change altitude.)
NAM: BST

Water Temperature: This is useful for monitoring actual water temperature
This is a normal gauge - no XGAUGE required, just cycle through the presets.

This is, in my opinion, the most useful information to monitor on a modern TDI.

Got some industrial strength velcro (the stuff that isn't fuzzy, but more like plastic) and attached it to the trim piece beneath the climate controls; has not fallen off once even in cold and heat.
I drilled a hole in the back corner of the pocket / cubby in front of the gear shift, and tucked the cord underneath the dash. The result is a near invisibly mounted, wireless appearing SGII.

Mine just sits here. there is a lip it sits behind on my 09. I have the cord wrapped under the steering wheel and snaked up to the right of the spedo. a couple black velcro wraps manage loose coil of the excess cord, which I also tie to the Garmin traffic receiver cord. it all sits pretty stable.

I built a bracket that hangs it from the rearview mirror will post up some pictures when I get some

Well I have a picture but have no idea on how to upload it I searched and I know there is a how to someplace but I can't find it. Oh well

I prefer the "out of sight" mounting location.
yeah that is a nice place there and what is nice there is removable panel that you can replace in case you mess it up (don't ask how I know :mad:) lucky it's not to expensive. I bought 2 just to have a spare.
