Question Mini Maxx Mounting Solution

HELP!!!
I am getting ready to order a Mini Maxx and need some ideas on a mounting solution. I have seen the dash mount above the vent and I am not a fan (my dash is not black. I know I could paint) I also already have a GPS and do not want a window full of electronics (one is enough) I have thought about the ash tray and above the rear view mirror. (don't know if I can get a longer cord?) Help with pictures please!!!!

The Mini Maxx is the same body as the Bully Dog GT that I have.
This is an option but in my opinion it puts it a little to far out of reach.

This is how I mounted mine. I already had two analog gauges installed and I did not want to remove them.

Dont know if you have electronic 4x4 or not, but this may be an option. I have the standard 4x4 so I had the blank panel near my radio. What I did was carefully route the cable from the OBD2 up to behind the panel, popped the plate out, bought some industrial velcrow and stuck the velcrow to the Mini, then the Mini onto the plate where I wanted it, took the Mini off and drilled a hole through the middle of the velcrow that was now stuck to the plate and ran the cable through the plate, hooked up the cable, stuck the Mini to the plate right where the velcrow was then put the plate back on. Been like this for 10k miles and does not move, vibrate or anything!

Even if you are 5 feet tall, it is not out of reach. Highly recommend it.
Blendmount for H&S Mini Maxx came in

you can use a mini maxx just like a pro. I don't keep mine in the truck 99% of the time. But it's nice to have the monitoring if you want it
