Not exactly a 'vote' as such as we have it flush mounted and looks great.

Just make sure you are happy where its going to fit and beware of the screen characteristics. Can you rig up and test it out in position powered up before you wire it in / cut holes etc?

Only downside I suffered from flush mount was the pain in removing it when it had to go back to Garmin because of screen fogging. I surface mounted on my new boat as I expect to upgrade at some point and I'm sure the hole will be the wrong size for a new model.

surface mount allows you to take it off and play with it at home on a 12volt supply!
found flush mounts to fog up more because of humidity in consoles...

I allso agree with ged, surface mount,for the reasons mentioned, and easier vieving if mounted on top of the console.
