Default Best Location for Bluetooth Microphone?

I am planning on installing a BT Head Unit and I need suggestions on where to place the microphone. The JVC unit does not have a press button on the remote mic, so it doesn't need to be convenient, I was thinking of somewhere along the driver side A pillar, or perhaps where the blank cutout is for the Fog Lamp switch.
I am thinking that I might need to remove the plastic cover from the A pillar to rout the cable. Any suggestions, I would like it to be semi hidden.

The sun visor works the best - IMHO

agreed, away from the window as much as possible. the center light/holder is a good spot also.

OK If the center light/holder is the best place
would I tuck the cable under the A pillar then under the edge of the headliner to get to that spot?
Any tips on removing the edge of the trim pieces, to conceal the wiring?
I know I could get them off, but putting trim back on so that it LOOKS like it was never were removed is the problem that I would have.

It goes on real easy, I have taken mine on and off a few times.
Start pulling on the top edge and work your way to the bottom.
To put it back on, you have to pull the door molding back a bit so the pillar cover goes under it, get the tension clips lined up to the holes in the A- Pillar and use your palm to tap it in.
Sounds harder than it is.

Also it is possible to run the wire without removing the cover
