i'm not familiar with the tomtom720 so i don't know how you need to run your wires from your tomtom to your ipod and back

It has an audio out, power cord, and ipod contol jack. So i have essentially three wires going from the tomtom and I am going to run them into the center console. Like you're install, i am going to leave the ipod in the armrest and plug the audio into the auxillary jack and then run the power from the power outlet in there. i was just unclear as to how to hide the wires after i take out the dash trim and console. Do i run them behind the radio and down into the console, or is there an easier way than taking the radio out?

you can run it down the passenger dash trim near the starter button down into the space of the steering wheel then open the bottom trim of the steering wheel (torx #20 3 screws) then just stick it under the center trim, thru the ebrake trim, then cut open one side of the vent for the center compartment....see the pics in my DIY.
