Car manufacturers are required to place the OBD-II port within a certain distance from the steering wheel but unfortunately, there's nothing stating that they have to make it convenient to use! We designed our adapter to be as out of the way as possible but some car manufacturers didn't exactly have products like ours in mind when deciding where to place the OBD-II port.
That said, while it is officially unsupported, we do have some users that have had some success with an extension cable. If you go this route, please make sure to secure the adapter down as well as possible. It could erroneously trigger Crash Alert if it bounces around.
