I started with mine in the same place but moved it to the other side of the radio display without the swivel bracket. Stops the sun shining on the screen

Thanks how has it been for you?
I've put mine in the same place as Dave87's picture. It's probably the best place for it, although I've recently been thinking whether I even need the screen visible. It depends what you're using it for - if the iPod's plugged in then track data / album art is useful. But since I mostly use the Parrott for calls (voice activated) and bluetooth music, and could happily live without the screen 90% of the time. If it was in the little cubby hole above the gear stick, that would work well if you wanted a more discrete install.

I wouldn't want it any more central than in the picture - at night the display is much brighter than (how I've set) the rest of the dashboard lights, it's kind of annoyingly bright, but at least it's out of my direct line of vision.

Superficial, thanks for your input, i agree im hopefully having it installed later today. Will post some pics. Where is your audio cables going to glovebox or centre armrest.
With the voice activation is that just automatically setup with your iphone/mobile?

I ran the cables to the centre armrest - used a hole Honda had already supplied that is in line with where the handbrake is. Meant I didn't have to drill/cut anything.
