    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 modified a Panavise in dash mount for my Jeep Grand Cherokee by having a friend cut me a piece of stainless steel as an extended plate and fastened it between the in dash mount and the UltraGrip. It keeps the second scanner close by and is actually quite sturdy. Total cost for the mounting, around $75 CDN.

...sorry, no other pictures of the Jeep...it needs to be cleaned.

I'm assuming scanner are legal to have in vehicles in Canada? My dad lives in Marine City (near Sarnia) and I wanted to take it over the border but wasn't sure what the laws were.

Thanks Ron. Check out the local cell installers for Panavise stuff. I found a Rogers guy in Stoney Creek who was quite willing to sell me the indash mount and the UltraGrip.

The UltraGrip is nice since it's adjustable for both height and width. It holds a BC250D/296D almost perfectly (some height adjustment required in order to get access to the power and remote connectors) but works less well with the BC246T due to the function button on the side.

Yes, it's legal to choogle around with scanners in yer vehicle in Canada.
