I have a Turbosmart boost gauge that i have been meaning to install for like 2 years. I purchased a Whoosh AC vent pod adapter for it, but would rather do a single pod more in my line-of-sight.

Pillar mount? Old school dash mount? Knee-knocker style?

I refuse to go pillar or hang it from the dash. Mine has been sitting for over a year... I've looked around the dash to find a spot, any spot where I could create a hole, but the whole thing is curved here or there, reinforced here or there... let me know when you know....lol

OBDII adapter with TORQUE PRO app for 2nd old phone as the bluetoothed display. It is safe to say that I will never install a boost gauge again.

Just what I want, a phone to have to
put out of site/away at night. Good idea for some, but no bueno for me. Besides, my old phone is for mowing the lawn and bt deck music.

I use an old s6 active as my display and magnet mounts on proclips so I just drop it in the door when not in use. Pretty simple. Most people just use their regular phone, but I have enough kids that have left old phones behind.(y) Only problem with magnet mounts is that you end up seeing how far you can throw your phone and get it to stick when you get in the car.

When will somebody hack the odbII-snyc 3 to show gauges on screen?
Now that would be nice.

I do have AP3, but i prefer not to mount it due to the cable/ i might leave it out and have it stolen.

At least you can remove it* I've always left mine in the car* Try not to park in sketchy areas without an lights. If I have to....I take it out and put it into my pocket. I have way too many gauges and stuff in my Typhoon to monitor so I know one less gauge is best. The best thing with a Ap3 is that you can have multiple gauges in one device* food for thought!

I do keep my cable connected and just lay it over the steering column, right under the dash overhang. It is very hard to see from any angle because the plug stays behind the fascia to the right of the steering column.

I run mine right up through the bottom side of the steering wheel. It is seldom seen unless it's plugged into my ....... "Fiesta ST A-Pillar Mount for Cobb AccessPort | Razzter" https://razzter.com/product/a-pillar-mount-for-accessport-and-devices

would mounting that right behind the steering wheel dead center be possible? looks small enough that it doesnt completely obstruct your view of the speedometer. I mean screw the gas gauge amirite? :p

I thought about doing that, but I'd run out of gas even with an alert. Heck, I can't see my turn signals given the seat and wheel height I use. I'll be driving down the road a ways and eventually see it's still on...ugh.

I have a glow shift gauge with the remote sensor connected with a 3 or 4 wire harness. Put it here and ran it right up between the dash panels.
