I'm now trying to figure out how to mount up my TM-D710A and ID-880H head units so that they're at least mildly aesthetically pleasing when they're in the car.  I have used the RAM mounting systems on the motorcycle with a fair amount of success in the past, and the ID-880H's head unit was mounted in the BMW using the 1" RAM mounts (it has a "tripod thread" hole in the back of the mounting plate into which you can screw a RAM 1" ball).
