    So it can't ever be a distraction, you could remove the ashtray (or the cubby hole if smoking pack isn't fitted) and place it there. If you are looking for an easier cable run, you could mount it in the glove box (or on the inner side of the lid) where it is out of sight for distraction (but easily viewable when needed) and out of sight of thieves.

    What springs to mind is make a cardboard template to use to make a plate (out of thin MDF or aluminium which can be painted or covered) to mount the screen to…maybe use a couple of small pieces of number plate double sided tape for the fixing which will be strong enough to hold in place but not so strong the plate can't be prised off without damage. If you are feeling adventurous, you could even cut out the centre to the size of the screen and make a small box on the back to mount the screen in so it sits flush with the plate. Have a look around the websites for car audio installers for ideas…anything is possible.
