Cut the cable where it will be unseen, make extentions out of same size wire, slide some heat shrink over the wires and crimp the extentions with butt splices, the check them for a good crimp so there are no loose wires, after that just heat up the heat shrink and run the cable where you want it.

As long as you keep it color coded you shouldnt have a problem, I've done simular mods plenty of times with out a problem.

The latest firmware update is DashDAQ 2.1.1-1633. What you have listed is not the firmware version, it's the OBD interface #, also pp #. To make sure you have the latest firmware version, which you probably have, follow these directions.

From Gauges, click Exit. Then click Setup. Now click Version. Your firmware version will be displayed on the 3rd line. Also will be displayed on the last line when it boots up..
