Built a metal plate for the back support, same size as the dashdaq, but a little smaller than the inside of the edge mount to allow to move slightly.
Drilled the 4 holes for the screws on the metal plate
Drilled a big hole for the wire plug on the metal plate.
Enlarged the bottom part of the Edge mount to accomodate the lower 2 holes
Put the screws through the metal bracket, add orings to keep them in place.
That is all.

I am considering having the plates pre-made and offer them for cheap with the dashdaq and a modified mount.

For a million bucks I CANNOT get any of the cool themes to load to my dashdaq! I got the Ford Racing splash screen to install but the themes it always has an error come up!

How do you do it? My DD is updated...

I was planning on mounting up by the rear view mirror but it seemed like a lot of work and i didnt want to custom fab something at the time.
