The glass mount was an experiment, awesome on the 700MHz Trunk System, okay on VHF (but not great)
seems directional.
Dug out my "odds and ends" box and found my splitter to take advantage of the am/fm whip on the vehicle.
Better VHF reception. Glass mount left in place as spare.
Moved 536 into glove box, now it's can be up out of way(when closed) with passengers on board.
Once I'm certain it's staying there will hard wire radios.

It's located above the space where the 536 was in first placement. There is nothing behind the glove box.

Did you bring the glass mount 700/800 antenna over from the old vehicle?

I believe that compartment where you had the 536, and now have the other radio pivots up and toward the windshield during bag deployment. I'd not put anything too heavy in there. (Built those cars at Belvidere Assembly plant when they first launched)

Glove box should be safe. Worse that will happen there is it won't collapse and absorb impact as well. It's designed to absorb knee impact.
