I used the pocket.
Three things I considered when determining a location to mount it was to find a location that:
1. Didnít interfere with legs or visibility.
2. The screen read-out could be easily seen and viewed.
3. I could easily reach the manual braking controls with my right hand (I'm right handed
) and with minimal impact to driving (i.e., without having to bend over or reach to access the controls).
I considered mounting it on top of the dash, but than decided on the lower dash, because of problems with running the wires to under the dash. Here are some pictures of where I mounted mine. (Pictures are a lot better than trying to explain it).
On lower dash, driver's right side of steering wheel:
Ran the wires under the dash to the OEM plug.
View from driverís seat
I can see the screen through the steering wheel and easily reach the manual control if needed.
Hope this helps.
