I have had mine installed for a few days now and I can say that I have noticed a decrease in the arm rest temperatures for sure. I ran a connector cable from my aftermarket head unit arm rest storage area. Before the insulator was in place the bottom of my Ipod would always get very warm to the touch as would other items in the storage bin. After installing the insulator and driving with it in place for the past few days I can say that the items stored in there are significantly cooler to the touch and so it the arm rest itself. For me it was a worthwhile $20 investment.

How is it installed if you don't have to remove your console?

You open the console, remove all your personal items such as loose change and cd's etc, take the insulator ind push it down into place, it's as simple as that

If you put the average electronic device in an enclosed area you're going to get noticeable heat build up. I doubt if the glove box gets much heat from the engine. Mostly would be a function of device heat itself and sunlight, engine heat last.

So it wouldn't matter if the interior is shale? You don't see this once it is in place?

Thanks,

Les
