Finally figured out how to post images.
I bought the CD at the same time as the V1, because I knew that the display from the main unit would be visible behind me where I felt the ideal mounting position would be in my car. I tried a few different positions on the dash, steering column, center stack (didn't like any location a cop could see when he's at your window), before I found the perfect place for me. It is in my vertical line of sight when I'm driving, and nobody behind me can see it. The main unit is behind the tint strip, and you can't see it looking through the front window unless you are right up to the glass. All hard wired, wires tucked away neatly, I'm happy.
Pics: (first 2 are a little blurry)
there's a little indentation in the head liner that's perfect for it, and you can see where I ran the wire
