I recently picked up a GI Pro gear indicator. I am always trying to shift up into 7th gear, and downshifting turning onto side roads, want to make sure im in the correct gear. I chose the GI Pro from http://www.healtech-electronics.com/
becase it is true plug-and-play.
As far as installing the Indicator I did not bother taking any pics as all it takes is plugging into the diagnostics connection under the seat, EASY!
For mounting I wanted a very clean setup. The indicator comes with double sided tape on the back. You could just stick it to the dash, but that would be ugly.
I have a Speedy's GPS mount, and looking at it decided the indicator would be mounted to that. But how?
Pic of the indicator and a piece of thick sheet metal.
If you have a Speedy's mount, you know the front face screws onto the "legs" to attach to the windshield mount. My plans were to sandwich the sheet metal between the Speedy face and legs.
I took some measurements to see the size of metal needed to hold the indicator, and also to fit in the sandwich.
(the small section on the left will be sandwiched, the section on the right is to hold the indicator.)
Ready for the sawzall with metal blade.
After measurements being taken and spots marked for holes to be drilled for screws.
Here is the Speedy's GPS mount with the Indicator mount on the side. In order to keep the spacing on each side of the GPS mount between the face and the legs I used 2 small washers that were equal to my sheet metal. I also painted the indicator mount black to hid it a bit(but the paint was after this pic).
Here are some finished install pics.
All mounted. I ran the wire out from under the dash at the windshield mount.
From the seat.
