• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Nice mounting but I'd sure hate to have my radio exposed to the direct summer sun like that.

My Pro-96 is pretty sensitive. I have to watch what I say around it or it starts crying...

:lol:
My BCT-15 does the same thing - even sometimes I could even think it might be "waa waaaing" just a bit. :D

But anyway back to the thread I like that install - nice to view instead of having to look down or whatever.

Mine came in yesterday. I placed it where it's partially in front of my AC vent. That ought to help a lot, I think... When parked, I remove it unless in the garage. Texas Summer's (and late Spring) are brutal on anything in direct sunlight. Ugh

One thing you may want to consider, when you remove it you should give the windshield a wipe with water and a paper towel. The suction cup will leave a ring. There have been many thefts of GPS's from cars and the majority of those are from people who have the suction cup mount. Even though the people remove them and store it in the trunk or glove box, it gets stolen, because the thief spots the ring left on the windshield by the suction cup. But I like this set up for one reason, you don't take your eyes off the road when you make an adjustment. That's one of my pet peeves about people mounting radios on the side of a console or between the seats,you take your eyes off the road. High on the dash or in the dash is the best place for any radio.
