I think what·your are tring to do will work but you will have keep the reader will have to be as close to the dash as you can get it

I·put the reader in a plastic box and it works real good

·But i notice that if you put to much space from box lid to the reader it would not work now
if i mounted the reader as close to lid it works but you have to put card to the box lid then it works good

Here is the Post where i did·this·

Hello,

·· If the reader is behind a metal panel it won't work.· The metal will act as a sheild for the RF Signals.· Plastic should work.· Take care.

Kevin -

You might want to try a search engine next time!
http://www.sokymat.com/

Just remember BOTH transmitter and receiver MUST be compatible with one another.

I do know that they will send out samples to companies, I recommend that you request some samples.· The worst thing that can happen is that they say no.
