Good Location For The V1 Remote Display.


Recommended Posts

This morning I was trying to rewire my V1. I found the best spot for the remote display is right in the ash tray. When the tray open, the display will pop up and face right at you. Close the tray and the display is completely hidden. Then I tried to get the RJ12 wire from behind the PCM to the ash tray. I can't get behind the ash tray draw. So I endup put the display back to its original location. If anyone knows how to take to ash tray draw, the side panel of the PCM, or the lower panel of the steering column out, putting the wire to the ash tray should be quite simple.

I've got the remote right in the middle on top of the steering wheel in all my cars. With black interior it's almost invisible and almost in your line of sight. I had mine on the 911 where the console used to be after doing the console delete, but didn't like looking away that far to see it. Much easier to glance at it where it is now. Having the main unit completely dark is invaluable, especially at night.

I've had my V-1 remote display located on the outside of the ashtray for several months now. My thinking was the same as yours regarding concealment. My wire is routed under the tray.

BUT, I do not now recommend this location. It seemed like a good idea, but in practice, it is way too low. When it goes off I have to take my eyes from the road to see the arrows. If I hesitate for a second, until I'm comfortable glancing down, the arrows are often gone by then and I have no idea of the radar direction. I am thinking of relocating above the steering column.
