    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:

I know I can using a Cig Plug extension cable for the CigB Plug of the Unit. But can I use an
DB9 extension cable can you extend the DB9 End of the Uniden GPS Unit.

If so, other than the cable what do I need to get.

Big thanks.

Normally you can use a "simple" DB9 extension cable with serial devices, but I would suggest you stick with a brand-name cable at a higher price, because sometimes the cheap cables will simply have too much internal voltage loss. "Too much" will vary depending on whether the device is using 5 volts, 12 volts, etc. as there are multiple standards. For the same reason, don't get the longest cable you can find, get "just enough".
