Any place but the A pillar makes it really difficult to monitor your gauges.

If you want them hidden but able to view without opening the Nav door (console or upper dash) look at the ashtray area in front of the gear shift.

I've seen the hazard button moved and you can put 2-3 gauges there. They won't be in your line of sight but they will be visible to you and not passersby.

The A pillar is a bad location if you ever plan on tracking the car. I have been told by many people not to do it simply because when you're coming up to a corner and trying to judge the apex, you can't see it with the a pillar gauges in your way.

It is a compromise, we use gauges to monitor our car and if you're driving the last think you want to do is look down, up or all the way to the right to check your gauges. I think the A-pillar is the easiest way to check for # and can be done on a quick glance without endangering your self. A-pillar will also tell the world that you are not stock and take away the luxury feel/look of our car, so it goes down to user preference. JMHO

Gauge location.........

I've been trying for months to find a two gauge pod to go where the nav
would go.....ya know at the top of the console. That's a perfect location
where the gauges can be seen with zero obstructions at eye level! May
have to get it custom made by a speaker shop in my area.

I have to disagree. I'm curious to know where you got your info. The Zeitronix is very accurate. It uses Bosch sensors and I have data logged it with the software and a laptop and it tracks A/F, EGT, Boost and TPS very accurately. My box is mounted to a hinge in the cubby. I don't have NAV. When I close the cubby lid, you would never know I had gauges.

This came from Sharif himself. Maybe he doesn't know what he's talking about but either way I don't have first hand experience with Zeitronix coz even [email protected] don't recommend it.

Also here's the link from Gurgen's Wideband shootout and you'll see who's the most accurate WB. At least Zeitronix made it to the list but second to the bottom
