Here's how we set the Dashdaq up for our 4Runner. We ran the power cable over the top of the steering column. Instead of mounting the Dashdaq on the windshield, we found a smooth surface on the dashboard next to the HVAC controls. This mounting location left our windshield view wide open and made it easier to reach and read the Dashdaq. The ball-and-socket joint let the Dashdaq point at the driver for solo flights, but it was pointed at the co-driver the rest of the time.
