Where did you mount your CTS?

Just got my insight CTS in tonight and trying to figure out where to put it. Looking for any ideas. Not sure if I want to leave it on the windshield after having my pioneer double din stolen a month after I got it and not having dark enough tint up front yet.

I put mine in the little compartment under my upfitter switches. Out of the way and out of sight from people when it is shut.

Sorry for the quality it's from my phone. Keep in mind though it is just sitting in there but is the perfect height to squeeze in there but sometimes it slightly moves to the left but hasn't fell yet or gotten unveiwable

I like the overhead pods. It wouldnt fit on my truck so I used the pod and put it on the floor just to the right of the compartment. It just "stays there". no pictures im in the desert
