Apologies, I'm an audio village idiot. Just happened to recall the ads for the cinemas in the old days - 'x' track stereo, et al...in the days before we had Dolby Digital Sound or dts.

Anyways you can install IPOD in a glove compartment or in arm rest if there is one in the car. These two are best locations.
glove compartment = diffcult to remove one has to bend over from the drivers side.
arm rest = not there :-)

what about the map pocket in the door?

also Rtech suggested that in the Octy there is a pocket or shelf under the steering wheel

Pocket under the steering wheel is a better place.

also remember both me and my wife are chauffered during the day so we only drive at night. we are both over 40 and not as flexible as you young guns besides we have poorer memories so if we tuck the ipod in a glove comaprtment or if it too diffuclt to remove it might be left there overnight or maybe even over a few days.

now we wont miss the ipods at home, in fact if heat was not an issue we wont mind having it permanatly hidden in the car. we hardly have time to use it at home.

Make a nice looking enclosure for IPOD and mount it at a convenient place anywhere on the transmission tunnel of the car. The place accessible easily from front or back.

Stereo comes from the Greek word for solid, and the term can be applied to any system using more than one channel, such as the multichannel audio 5.1- and 6.1-channel systems used on high-end film and television productions. However it is more commonly used to refer exclusively to two-channel systems.....A "stereo" sometimes refers to a sound system set up in a way that will play a stereo recording or broadcast. Caution should be used with this reference, however as it should not be used to describe a 5 channel (or more) home theater or home cinema system, as such systems are not 2 channel, and thus not "stereo".

....Stereo or stereophony generally refers to dual-channel sound recording and sound reproduction sound that contains data for more than one speaker simultaneously. Compact disc audio and some radio broadcasts are stereo. The purpose of stereo recording is to recreate a more natural listening experience where the spatial location of the source of a sound is, at least in part, reproduced.
