Well I got around to giving my TomTom a permanent (removable) home. I don't like mounting it using the suction cup on the windscreen so I made a custom mount into the ashtray (i'm a non smoker). It's screwed into the removable part of the ashtray. It looks good, works well and all I have to do now is hard wire the power to it. In the mean time, I can still use the cable into the ciggy lighter. To remove it, I can either unclip the unit from it's mount or pull it out the ashtray which will allow me to close the lid.
