Im a bit taller and have longer legs so mounting anything under the dash area i am thinking will be a bit of a pain, so guess i will go the redarc and have everything hidden away and only have small dial installed much like @ForestRanger has done.

Great write up, would be interested too in the cost of this, also would this be the same process for upgrading form an earlier system which came out with the wildtrak with the smaller 4 or 5in screen?

Obvioulsy would need the surround replaced as well.
