Hello all, i just moved my traqmate unit to the tunnel with with wires running up to the radio console, will the heat of the tunnel melt those wires or ruin my unit?

I haven't had any issues with mine in that location. It is mounted at the very rear of the tunnel.

I never had any issues with heat when mine was mounted there.
I did however have problems with my elbow leaning on it in left hand turns and skewing my peak g's to 2.8-3!!

I moved mine to a bracket I made on the passenger floor.

I was advised against doing that to minimize damage from pooled water. Mine's also on the tunnel and as far back as it can be... haven't hit it yet.

JustXtreme,

To be on the safe side I glued some heat shield to the bottom of the sensor bracket and I put 1/4" spacers under that for a little air. I also have all my wires in loom, it makes a clean install.
