    I wanted a place to mount and install a Google Mini that would hide the device yet still allow me to hear it well and speak to it without much effort. After a few days of pondering, I decided to install the Google Mini in the unused portion of the overhead compartment directly next to the sunglasses door. I did not need the credit card holder that comes factory-installed. I popped out the rectangular cover from the overhead compartment, pried the extra pieces of plastic out of the empty space underneath, screwed in the custom Google Mini ceiling mount, and inserted the device into the mount. I bought some cheap gray speaker fabric and wrapped the plastic rectangular cover with it to give it a speaker look and feel. Not all installation details are posted here, but I did want to share some of the details.

    It connects to my iPhone's hotspot so that, during my 90-minute commute to and from work, I can ask it things like:

    "What is the traffic like 5 miles up the road?"
    "Who is ahead in the football game?"
    "Play me something on Pandora."

    Siri's voice recognition is terrible, but Google's is exceptional in comparison.
