Can anyone recommend a good dashboard mount? I want to either mount my Clarion Calypso sat radio on the left side of the stereo, or in between the two vents above the stereo. I know I saw some by panavise, but I'm not sure if any would fit? Recommendations? Pictures would help. Thanks!

I've been looking for a good cell phone mount myself (I avoided the satellite radio issue by installing an aftermarket head with a built in XM interface). Two companies have stamped metal type mounts (Panavise and Pro-fit), and Pro-Clip has a plastic mount. All three require you to buy two pieces, one specific for the car, the second specific to what you want to mount. The Panavise and Pro-clip mounts are available now, and the Pro-Fit will be out in September. Here are the links:

www.pro-fit-intl.com
www.ProClipUSA.com
www.panavise.com/f/main.html

I am looking for anyone who has purchased any of these products (whether for cell or satellite radio mount) who can provide comments and hopefully pictures.

I put my kenwood Krc-70 up on the overhead light console.I personally don't like things hanging off the dash and figured this was a ideal spot to reach,looks tidy and easy to read

How did you get it up there? annd how did you route the wires?

boys, it is very easy..I installed the tuner box itself under the passenger seat and then routed the connecting display unit wires up the "A pillar" on the passenger side,along the front of the headliner (just pull it down) and into the courtesy lighting console (it will just pull straight down)I actually removed the back of the display unit itself and "countersunk" 2 screws right into the front of the panel and then popped it right back into place...Voila! the size of the actual display unit I have is almost the exact width of the front of the console piece so it looks very clean...Either way though, you can do the same thing with a starmate or one of the other small display units and it makes it kinda cool to have an "overhead" display unit:smilie

Sounds awsome, but what do you mean by "countersunk" 2 screws into the front panel? Also, did you just route the wires around the front windshield up to the center light thingy where you plugged your headunit in?

exactly..From the tuner box itself (under the seat) I ran the wires up the pillar (just pops off) , across the front of the winshield (under the headliner) and into the light console.Then, I "pryed" off the back of the display unit you see in the pic and drilled in (2) screws.This would be from inside the back piece I "pryed" off and into the front of the light console.Then, I just "snapped" the front display piece back onto the back of it that was already mounted up on the console and DONE!.You could do this as well, or you could pull the console down and put a couple screws through the console into your display unit to hold it as well. I went the "countersunk" way so it would be a little more "flush " up against the front console piece.
