I guess in car module inside console was the way I was thinking (no point on paying for cost of displays and buttons etc if all I want is a simple cont. feed.
There is a 12V car accessory socket inside my console.
If I connect my existing h/held (or another h/held) I end up needing a bracket of some sort and probably a custom cable which will be more than a separate in car module.
Console is about 5mm thick polyethylene so expect to get OK signal.
