Thank you & cheers hondo
I'd go with that one myself if I was in the market for one. I have a hump on my Laguna which has the radio display, clock and outside air temp gauge in it. I'd think it would sit on top of there pretty well (I'm not sure where they are on factory fit versions).

I have my Trafficmaster Freeway sitting on top of my hump, and it looks fine (fits on with velcro strips). My SatNav is a standalone Pocket PC with sits in the corner of the windscreen on a suction mount, very neat and transferable from car to car.

Cutting the holes in the bumper and running the wires will be the trickiest part I should think, although it does say it comes with the holesaw to cut the holes in the bumper, just need to measure them out evenly. At least it does fit in the bumper like a factory one, not just stick onto it like the other one.

Another option if you don't want to go to all that bother is one of those Quikpark lenses that attaches to the back window. I have one on my car (and had one on a previous estate car) and they're quite accurate once you get used to how they work. When you loose sight of various parts of the front of the car behind you can tell how far off you are. For example when you can't see the number plate you're about 6ft away, when you can't see the headlights you're about 4ft away etc.
