    I did on my LS. Works well up to 30mph or so and then gets a little spotty.

    I removed the OEM depth sensor in the back and replaced with the GPS sensor. My GPS/Fish finder now provides speed and depth along with the GPS and both work better than my OEM gauges (speedo, depth)

    Sorry no pics but I mounted mine to the right of the gauges. On a flexible quick release ball mount that it came with.

    Mine is mounted on the left side of the steering and not on the console but it is a ram mount that is attached to the side where you walk through. I then attach the GPS and can bring it over to the dash area since my GPS is bigger than the one shown above. Works out well but sorry I don't have a picture right now
