• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.

Any suggestion on where to mount a Uniden 996T with the remote head in a Nissan
Pathfinder ?

The darn control cable is only 10 ft long, and I originally wanted to mount the radio
under the 3rd row seat next to a remote Spectra, with the scanner remote head in the dash, but control cable is not long enough.

Scanner won't fit IN the dash.

No room under the 2nd row seats. Zero clearance.

Suggestions welcome.

I'm contemplating under the passenger seat, but then it's exposed to spills and I have to deal with the hvac ducting under the seat in the way.

I have an 06 Nissan XTerra with the 996 in the dash because the factory deck was a double DIN size so I bought a single DIN radio/CD and mounted the 996 just below it (more correctly stated, the guys at Best Buy did the install on the stereo and the scanner). The only thing I remoted was a speaker under the driver's seat for the scanner.

I thought the XTerra and the Pathfinder were fairly similar interior/dash setups.

I'm contemplating under the passenger seat, but then it's exposed to spills and I have to deal with the hvac ducting under the seat in the way.

Did the remote mount thing for my Icom ID-800 in that location. I thought it actually made it easier because then I knew what I could drill without causing damage.

Thanks, I really don't want to mess with the factory stereo, and around here
Best Buy would be the LAST place I would take it for an install. LOL

Looks like it goes under the passenger seat and the remote head in the
shelf under the A/C controls with super-velcro.
