Thanks! I originally wanted to have vents incorporated to the long flat area below the screen, but I am going to have cables behind there. There might be enough room though, I'll have to see once the GPS is in there. A hump on the dashboard might work, but you would have wires running up to it, unless you cut a hole in the dash, which I would not do.

Thanks, the 1700 updates through a mini USB port on the bottom, so that shouldn't be an issue. It will be removable though, probably by a couple clips inside that hold it up against the opening. I'd like to replace it with a 7" Android tablet in the future, but am waiting until I find one with backup camera support.
