I saw last week that a few of you that have the 550 were using version 1.4 mine says its using 1.3 and on the Coastal tech website all I can see is that the latest version is the 1.3 that I have. Is the 1.4 newer and where do you get it?

I have a 1.4. It came with it, I noticed its not on their site. I would email them directly...

Where is the best place to get the GMX550? And those of you that have installed it, where do you have your cables for your iphone?

I got mine on Amazon. It was sold by a company called radarshop or something like that for $279.

I hid the actual GMX550 module behind the glove box. The iPhone cable however I ran down below the cup holders and while on the passenger side, I pulled the plastic out that goes down beside the seat to cover the carpet. Then I shoved the iPhone cable out there and left about 2.5 feet of slack out. That way it reaches to the driver side, or when no using just tucks down beside the passenger seat

I pulled my cup holder out and made a small hole on the bottom of my center comes so I store it in the lower console and you can't see any wirrs. My 550 is up behind my glove box so I can access it easily.

This is the reply I got from Coastal Tech when I asked them about the 1.4 update
