    Pillar Mounts in Arizona

    I thought this would be the best place to post this.

    For those of you running a pillar mount for your tuner, how does it stand up to the heat? I'm in Phoenix and if I leave anything in my truck in the summer it usually stops working. I've burned up a few iPods over the years and I didn't leave them in the direct sun. So what do you guys do?

    As always thanks in advance.
    Michael

    I use to live in the high desert in SoCal.
    Used a windshield screen when I'm out of it and never had an issue.

    Thank both of you for the replies, do you guys see 115-120* in the truck? I use a screen but it still seems to have an effect on the electronics. I just didn't want to have to take it in and out and I'd like to have it on the pillar as opposed to in the armrest.

    It was easy to hit 115 + in midsummer for 100 + days in a roll.
    I'm not saying it did not get real warm in the cab in midday. But not hot enough to effect the unit.

    Have you thought of tinting the inside windshield ?
    They have some great films that are clear and reduce a heck of a lot of inside heat.

    That's a great idea! I'll call and schedule that, thanks for bringing it up.

    Yes I’ve seen temps like that before. I’ve tinted my windows. It helps a lot.

    Re: Pillar Mounts in Arizona

    Here in GA, I got a local guy to install the ceramic window tint. He said it can reduce inside temps up to 40%. Of the three different types of tint, it was the most expensive. He recommended 50% ceramic on the windshield but I thought that would be too dark at night. They do offer it in ceramic clear also. I paid $260 for 20% ceramic with a strip on my windshield. Can not even begin to understand the temps y'all deal with out there. It gets hot here with super high humidity, but nothing like that!

    They now have ceramic tint in clear that really helps cut down the heat without actually tinting the windows.
