• 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:

Pro-95 and Pro-97, mobile work setup.

I have a cigarette lighter running to the '97 and battery to the '95. I'm not in the same vehicle each day, that's the reason for that setup.

Last night was the first time I had the need to run both at the same time. It worked well.

So if you don't have a cup holder in a place where the scanner is in front of you, are there any products that are out there to mount the scanner to the dash somewhere? My BR330T has a very sturdy belt clip but I'd rather not double stick the belt part to my shiny dash. So do they make any functional dash clips that maybe connected to an air vent lets say? Thank you. Here is what I'm up against:

Keep the scanner, get rid of the car. ;)

Seriously though, you could put it up in front of the gear shifter depending on whats under the panel. If there's space underneath it, there the potential for a slick in-dash install.

Sorry, car is paid for and until it's worth less than the scanner, car gets priority. As far as mounting in front of gear shifter goes, the door you see there is inset so I'm not sure the scanner will fit there without hitting the bottom of the dash but I'll give it a shot.

It may not present much help to you but on my car on the molding that runs up between the driver side window and windshield, where the plastic molding ends and the headliner begins is a place I found where I can easily slide my Pro-94's belt clip in at. It fits right behind the molding. It may be less useful on something where you need to be viewing the screen, but on the up side it keeps it almost completely hidden from outside view.

jscott02 I do same thing. I put my pro 96 on the visor. I hook up a the power supply that is plugged in the cigarette lighter and ran the wire up to the visor. I use the "Cellular Look-Alike" Glass-Mount Scanner Antenna. The setup is very simple.

Maybe you can use one of those large suction cups that are used for dash mounted cameras?
