Just finished doing this today. Thanks to Bascule for the inspiration for the DVM's (can't believe how snug the fit is!).

Garmin fitted into the ashtray recess quite nicely with a bit of hacksaw and Dremmel (or Ryobi in this case) action and is controlled by the switch on the far right.

Middle switch is for the cigarette lighter (hated it being permanently live) and first two are for the DVMs.

Loving how it looks. Thought the SATNAV would be a bit low, but tend to listen to it more than watch it.

Now, what dash mod to do next? There's one more blanking plate that needs filling up!

sat nav way to low down for me to be safe.
I thought so too, but tried it out stuck to the outside of the ashtray. I tend to listen to it 90 percent of the time rather than look at it and when I do it's very fleeting and don't even need to tilt my head down to see it. Have seen similar positioning in coaches and the like.

If it does feel unsafe after a bit more experience with it, I'll move it up. T:
