Where is everyone mounting their Edge Insight CTS monitors?

Think I'm gonna go ahead and order the Insight CTS for my truck. I'll probably do the A-pillar mount, but curious to see where everyone else is mounting theirs.

It looks like the top of your windshield is tinted and your side windows are tinted, you won't see it from the outside. Mine you can see the suction cup looking at windshield because my windshield isn't tinted.

Yeah I thought about that too. Just wondered how hard it would be to read down there. Really would like to see someone that has it mounted on the A-pillar.

I don't recall an A-pillar mount for the CTS. I used the window mount as well towards the bottom corner. It's easy to pull out for updates. The cables are hidden and looks more like a GPS where mounted.

ok I ordered the two pieces above. Got them in today. Here are the instructions for the adapter:





Basically the adapter attaches to the back of the CTS and the the adapter snaps into the regular insight pod.

Here is the pod in the truck:





Here is the adapter snapped in the pod:









Now I guess I just need to get a CTS to see if it works lol.

How do you mount the a pillar pod? I have one and couldnt get it in there. I almost broke it. Do you have to remove the trim and grab handle on the a pillar. Thanks.
