    I have a question Thrice,
    I got a 2000 montaineer and it has the same dashboard like urs. Now I'm in the middle of deciding either IPod setup or Carputer setup.

    My questions:
    - how clear can u navigate and view ur screen from ur driverseat?
    - is it easy to read while u drive?
    - how does the sun effect the screen since its almost vertical located?
    - any tips? or anything else that you would have done different from the beginning

    I'll try to answer your Q's

    1) Quite easily

    2) yes I have not had any problems

    3) this is the kicker, it effects the previous question tremendiously. I'll take some photos of mine sometime. The only time the sun is a real issue is if I have my sun roof open, or I have a pessenger with a white or other light colored shirt. The reason is.. the light comes from the outside, reflects from the other shirt, bounces off the screen and to your eyes.

    4) different? I would have changed the angle of which I installed mine. to eliminatre the passenger problem. I would take a mirror and sitting in your seat andjust it until it is reflecting to the darkest spot possible (roof most likely).
