I got a garmin navi for xmas and I am pretty impressed with it. I want to try and mount it somewhere (has 3.5 inch screen). It looks like crap hanging from the window, anyone done this? If so, how did you do it?
this is what i did with my clarion N.I.C.E gps which also has a 3.5" screen didn't want to mount it on the window, i know some people don't like what i did but to each his own..just throwing out some ideas for you..
that's a cool idea. i've thought about the possibility of putting a single-din HU into the cubby hole part up there. i have an '05 so it has the little compartment that usually the stock navi would go in, and depending what the AC ducts look like it may be possible to fit a single-din unit in there. it will most likely cause some problems with hacking into the ducts but i think it could be do-able. i hate the fact that the best sounding aftermarket HUs come in a single-din package. the Alpine F#1, Pioneer P9, Clarion DRZ, Rockford RFX...they're all single-din units. and if it could fit in there with the cover still able to close (probably require some hacking into the cover as well) the system would be completely stealth as you can leave the stock HU in place. that would be heaven. i'd be willing to sacrifice the center air ducts if i had to...
i did this installation a while ago.. it is simple though just find 2 plates and bolt one to the unit and the other one to the side of vent housing and connect them with a pin so it moves pivots, also make sure that the unit is not bigger than the space on the vent housing
