    Ambient temperature sensor/display (activating temp display in MID via ETACS)

    Hey all,

    Wanted to install an ambient temp sensor/display in my mirage, it's a feature that I really really miss and one I think would be pretty cool.

    Now I've looked at ones that I can buy but I don't like any of them, they either are just too over the top with a clock and weather forecast and blah blah blah and some that have are in like round gauges and just nothing that I want. Now back in my 91 Mercedes the sensor and display would work out pretty good I think, but I just don't know how I would wire it. The unit is flat and I feel like I could just Velcro it to the bottom of the airbag sensor warning light by the dome light. What do you all think. The only thing would be powering it and I don't know where I would hook it up too. Any ideas? Thoughts?

    Depending on how much current it draws, I wonder if the dome light power would work?

    LCD displays require very little power to operate.

    Did you ever get this installed? I have one similar to this and I think it turned out pretty good.

    Why do you install this device? Activate the ambient temp on the etacs, and the ambient temp will be on the MID.
