Not the prettiest, but it's easy, out of the way, and installed with velcro.<br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/kmags/Volvo%20S60%20R/021.jpg" BORDER="0">

I would have loved the door pod, but I already had a mechanical gauge. I wasn't about to fork it out for a new gauge and a pod. Yuk.<p>Oh...one of these days someone is going to mount one in their a/c vent...just like the Audis do.
