Where did you mount your Sirius radio?

Ok I need some inspiration. I bought a new head unit and a link for my Sirius plug and play radio. I love Sirius and take my radio back and forth from my truck to my office. Show me some pics of your setup if you don't mind??
My initial thought was to get it down low on the dash by trash hook, but the stuff I have (window mount and some cheapo air vent mount) don't seem to want to play along.

Thanks,
Dave

Got one..... don't use it much. Wife keeps the radio plugged it the boom box in the house and won't let me have it!

Anyway, I used the window mount and took the suction cup part off and sandwiched the arm in a couple pieces of styrofoam. Then wedged it in the open tray in the dash. Works for me! Not the best pic, but all I got on file.

I have mine mounted in almost the exact same spot as above, I'll grab a pic in a bit. I don't really like it down there, but it was about the only place to keep it out of the sun, I'm thinking about mounting it right above the cup holders by the outlet plug. I found a mount on ebay that has double sided tape on the back and really sticks well to the dash.

Thanks guys, keep it coming. I found a slightly different mount at tss radio. I may mount next to the power outlet too. I want a clean looking deal with minimal wire exposure ya know.

Thanks,

So with the mount from TSS radio I found that I could wedge the mount in my dash opening as pictured. It is not permanent as I did not peel back the tape yet. Going to see if I like it there or not.




Thanks,
Dave

Looks good Dave! I like it there because it's easier to read and change channels.

I really like mine mounted here. The only bad thing is having to put wholes in my dash. Ive never had real good luck with using sticky tape. Doesnt last very long driving across a rough pasture.
