Changed the mount to my Scangauge.

I used a recycled iPod gooseneck mount. See my Blog post.

Hi Ron:

The install was easy. The scanguage is held to the top of the cubby with the velcro that came with the unit.

I routed the wire from the OBD plug under the dash out the left side forward of the door frame. You can just make out the wire to the left of the vent in the photo above.

I may go for a more permanent solution later. I think the velcro's adhesive may let go after a few afternoons in the hot sun.

Hi bob,
how hard was the install? Did you do it yourself?

Just got a scanguage and installed it to the left of the instrument cluster. It's velcro'ed to the top of the storage cubby.

So far, most trips average 42-46 mpg without the air conditioning and the top rolled back! One run with the AC blasting gave 38 mpg, but that was a lot of stop and go. I'm still on the first fill-up!

Planning a scenic drive to lunch today.

I love the smart! It seems so much bigger on the inside!

Trying to unlearn reaching for the key on the dash.

Hi Bob,

Tampa dealer on Dale Mabry has orphans. They are loaded and priced accordingly. Since you are in St Pete, thought you might be interested. I was there today, Sunday June 29th.
