Thread: Bright Ideas Please.....

    Default Bright Ideas Please.....

    About 2 years ago I purchased a TomTom 700 with full European Map. 1 Week later I purchased my old Vectra SRi NAV and hardly ever used the TomTom as the car had SatNav built in.

    However, I found the TomTom useful on the Irmscher European run last year.

    .... so I've recently dug it out again and updated the European Camera Database on it, ready for this years European trip. A lot less than buying another device I thought... and may as well use it !!

    However, this is where I need a bright idea...

    I dont know where to fix this TomTom 700 so that its a perminent fixture in the car.... as I dont want it on display as I value the glass in my side windows !!

    I've also got the external aerial system, so in effect, it could go anywhere as it doesnt need to be in view of a Satellite.

    To be honest, I've sort of given up with it again as a perminent fixture... and will probably just wheel it out on the Irmscher run....

    Any ideas ?

    Glovebox lid? As you open it, you'll have view of it, and if you close it... well, no-one would know

    Good idea though, just wouldnt be practical

    You could be the first to.
    Build it into the sunviser. Run a feed up the pillar and into it.
    I thought about doing it in the landrover for the wife. But i'm a bit bizzy at the moment. I'm sure i'll get around to it some day.

    Hi Chris, yeah, I've got all the vent mounts... which I'll set up on the Irmscher trip... trouble is, you can still see it all !! ... and I was hoping for a perminent 'stealth' installation
