I haven't mounted mine yet. I'm almost tempted to not do so -- I mean, it's a Toyota, what's to break?

Anyhow, I'm thinking of putting it over the brake controller, and routing the cable inside the dash, right next to the controller wiring. I decided to put my controller onto a small hobby board (I do some scrollsawing from time to time), so it's 1/4" thick, cut to fit into the ashtray rail. I can slide out the controller and remove it, if I wanted to, but it's already out of the way.

I put some poly onto the board, and I think the Scanguage velcro will work on it ok.

Instead of running wood, I would use plexiglass and run a BLUE LED behind, inside the hole... I can see it would look sick

I mounted mine in front of the little cubby hole by the shift lever.
It covers the left 12v outlet. Used some aluminum angle and
screwed it by using a longer screw in the top back of the scanguage.
Drilled a small hole to run the cord in the top of the cubby so no
loose cord to see. Looks good and is out of the way. I'll try to remember
to get a picture up.

Finally put mine in, right over the brake controller, like I wanted. I ran the cable in behind the dash; the kick panel removes with just two screws. I did have to unscrew the ashtray slide thing (two more screws) in order to get enough access; but the brake controller cable runs back there too. Couple of zip ties hold the cable in place.

Not quite as clean as I'd like, but good enough for my purposes. I usually monitor ATF temp, water temp, instant mpg and mpg for the tank.

I had mine mounted on top of my steering wheel column so that I could see it at a glance. Plus it didn't cover any of the warning lights (I'm pretty tall so I can see over it). Plus if you mount it far back enough most people don't even notice it or think it's stock.
