How can I get one and the price for it? Couldn't find it where you direct to.
They're usually on Amazon.com.

uuh.... jwight..... i'm fairly certain he's talking about the mount, not the scangauge.

And which i kept forgetting to comment on..... it's nice... but i think it'd be a bit better if the flexible arm came out already facing the cabin, rather than extending out a bit into the passenger footwell.
Probably so - in which case, the Genius Smart Parts site doesn't list them yet. Matt did a nice job on this but in my opinion it puts the SG too low and forces the driver to go "head down" in the cockpit - not a good thing.

I am looking for the mount. I already have the gauge.

Here is another option that a fellow smart car owner made that we now offer to our customers. It is very simple, but it works well. Here is the direct product link:

i have an 8" articulated arm with a suction cup mount and have the suction cup mounted in the lower left corner of the windshield. the gauge appears above the left corner of the steering wheel, in plain view with the road ahead, so it is always in view without looking at the roof or under the radio. the only time it isn't in view is if you look up at the rear view mirror or look towards the right mirror.
some velcro attached in the same spot near the 12v plug will only cost about 30 cents..... if you hot glue it so the summer heat does not affect it, 35 cents.... quit trying to make the solutions to simple problems expensive and complex. save your money for a better radio instead!
here's a pic of my install

James G, You may find it useful in that position but I think it is just begging some punk to try and steal it to further his crack habit... Too exposed to prying eyes! plus it just adds clutter to the dash.

for giggles, i added the extra CAT 5 cable, so it has 2 cables running out of it, been there 18 months, no problems. not many crackheads where i live, i guess.
This is how I took care of the problem - visible while driving, doesn't stick out where I might hit it with a drink from the drink holder, doesn't obscure my view through the windshield...
