Hi,regarding police scanner it is no longer available as they already gone digital ,so for those xtrailers thinking of buying one please don't such waste of money might as well buy digital scanner but it will cost a fortune.aprrox. $700 to $900.00 depending on brand.have it on my Kenwood 860G all I can hear now is NOISE!!! not sure in country areas if they update it yet.



To decode digital signals, (not neccesarily police) a car-puter type system would be of great use as you can feed the audio signal direct to a software decoder.

However should you have a reason to listen top police, which I don't condone, you would also need their encryption key, which I hear is on a rolling basis. So even if you did get it, you would have to work it out again at the next code changeover.

Having a car based computer attached to a UHF however is extremely useful for radio TTY and various other telemtry, provided you stick to the telemtry channels (22 and 21 I think)



Back on topic a little, what of the t30's? where can I stuff a Uniden 088 (uhf/vhf combo)

Mine is still under finance and I'm not allowed to "de-value" the vehicle.

Re: CB Radio - How to fit


Hello Team

Recently picked up one of those little GME units with the microphone control combo -TX3340 I believe. Anyway, I have been searching the forum for some time for some photos of access through the bloody firewall of my T31 Series II 2010 TL to no avail. I want to mount this tiny unit under the steering wheel somewhere.

I am aware of the grommets behind the glove box and next to the break pedal in the T30 but can anyone help me with access in my newer model? And I sincerely apologise if this has already been covered elsewhere.

I have already tried following the bonnet release wire and another clear plastic tube through the wall but their grommets are too tight. and I can not seem to get the carpet all the way up to search for the grommet as described on the forum elsewhere - i.e. near the brake pedal. I have also took my vehicle for an opinion to a local auto electrician who was not confident about getting through the wall without the drill - so I promptly refused as the vehicle is still in its precious "new" phase.

Can anyone help? or would i be better off going to my local dealership?

Re:


The grommets should be in the same place as all T31 models.
They are right up in behind the glovebox.
I poked a wire in through the engine bay and pulled it through that way.

Re: CB Radio - How to fit


Installed an antenna on Monday night. A few tips for those looking to do it themselves:
1. Make sure the length of wire you poke through the rubber grommet it at longer than 40cm. I did it with a 40cm length and it was very difficult to access around the air filter.
2. use a screwdriver or something else long and narrow (and preferably dull) to help open up the grommet a bit and pull through as you pull the wire and cable. Makes it much easier to pull through the wire and cable.
3. Don't do this in the dark like I did.
