heated seats switch location

Just picked up a 2017 Pro. I am having heated seats put in next week. I would like to know where people are putting the switch. I was told they will put it on the side of the seat. I am not liking that idea at all. I want them in the dash or center console somewhere so I can see them, plus there is an airbag down there somewhere. So where are you all putting your heated seats switches at? Can I get some pictures please!

Heated seats switches

Here's a pic of mine. They were already dealer installed when I bought it earlier this year. It's an SR5, not a Pro but, don't know if that makes any difference. Small switches between the cupholders and the middle console lid.

Mine put the same switches down on the sides of the seat. It's a rather annoying location--I like that spot by the cupholders. At some point I've thought about trying to integrate with a set of factory switches, but it looks like it'd be a bit of a job.

The '12 platinum sequoia we just bought has heated rear seats. I'm not sure what's involved with them but you may be able to use some of the parts. The switches are nice if nothing else.

The ones in my 2010 Tundra are on the side of the seats. It's annoying to have to explain where they are to passengers. Or that I have to walk around the truck to turn it on for my wife while warming up the truck.

Location of heated seats switches

The only problem I have with the location of mine is the fact that I can't see them without bending forward and looking down; not the best position when driving. But then again, once these babies get warmed up, I know they're on. They're really easy to reach and because of their three position switch for low/off/hi, I can tell by feel where they are. I think on the 2014 and up it's the best location, IMO. Not as much room for switches on the newer models like my old 2011. That thing had blanks all over the place.

I thought about the area around the 12V and usb plugs, but it is too hard to see when I'm driving.
I then thought about the rear console area but decided to put them where I did.

The green light is easily seen.
The red is kinda hard to see but I can feel when they are on.
But it's really easy for the wife to turn on/off, since she is the reason I installed them.
I use them myself a lot more than I thought I would.






I'm happy with it..
