Had mine mounted inside the console attached to the USB Media Hub.
Antenna is NMO mounted just in front of the third brake light.

I have mine above the nav...



The mic is routed below, by my right leg... mounted on the side of the console. Location is great for hearing the traffic, very loud even above the music.
Wilson and centorian like this.

Nope, just a press-fit... It's nice and snug, zero movement! Was installed by Outlaw, I believe the upper dash piece was clearanced a small amount.

It's seems some serious abuse, and has never moved.

Forgot to put pictures of the new mount point.. Wilson I drilled up under the edge on the passenger side this way if I have to move it there is no big hole showing where the wires run in to the center console...
