    I put my mounting plate on the backside of the main screen. I didn’t want to mount it on the dash, and it’s more hidden.

    No need to mount it. Just put it in the cupholder on its magnetic plate.

    If you have the Evannex cup holder insert (and you should because it’s amazing), then the Dragy wedges in the center of it perfectly without any plate needed.

    It will magnetically attach to the metal mesh behind the back seats!

    Cup holder. I use the mounting plates to help wedge it in and keep it from moving.

    I don’t like the thought of putting magnets near the screen

    Magnets don't hurt LCD screens. That's why many cell phone cases use magnetic flaps.

    In the Garage section in the Dragy app, where you put in your car information, what is everyone using for the Displacement? Or does it even matter? I could have sworn when I was initially setting up my Dragy there was an option to input my city for the Leaderboard, but now I can't find it and it only shows country. I though there was a way to compare your times to others in your area?

    Put it on the rear speaker grill. Holds great since its metal and gets a perfect view of the sky for strong GPS.

    so I tried it out for first time last night...I used velcro and placed in right in front of screen....battery was at 67% and wasn't warmed up really......45 degrees outside....first run was 4.13 sec....I have the boost upgrade on AWD model.

    Sound about right???...with full battery and warmer temps I should get 3.9 I am thinking.

    No issues with the magnet interfering with the speaker? Any rattling that you have noticed? That install location seems the cleanest!

    if you do a couple runs in a row, it will improve. My first one on a cold battery was about the same as yours. by the 3rd run in a row i was down to 3.8. I'm assuming the battery warmed up a little. (or i somehow improved my driving skills)

    The speakers are actually on the sides, depending on your build the center is just a grill or a grill with an air passthrough to the trunk. I haven't noticed any rattling.
