Question for people with windshield/mirror gauge pods

I was going to get one of the pods that mounts above the rear view mirror to hold my gauges when I remembered, the antenna for my security system is mounted right in the middle at the top of the windshield. Do the pods stick out enough to interfere with it? Other than that I'm stumped as to where I want to put gauges...I don't want to get rid of my grab handle. My brake controller is mounted to the lower dash. I'm running out of ideas! Thanks.

That is pretty sweet looking. I'll have to check it out. Seems like I'd just run into another relocation problem though. Where's my brake controller gonna go? Decisions decisions.

Nevermind, looks like I could just relocate it and hang it from the bottom of the 650 dash...Looking like I might go that route.

they do offer two versions, a manual and automatic, one just stick outs a little further.
