Power for UHF radio

Unread post by Piemole » April 1st, 2016, 8:29 pm

Hey guys

Need to install my radio, wondering where people have grabbed power from?

I would prefer not to splice into the existing loom, I would prefer to get the right plug and grab power from a distribution point if possible. My old car had a large plug under the dash where you could grab power for accessories.

Need it to run from the acc as well, I'm hopeless at remembering to turn stuff off when I stop for the night :P

2015 XTR if that makes any difference.

Anyone done this themselves at all?

Thanks

Bit of a description of what I did a few posts down here; http://www.4wdaction.com.au/forum/viewt ... 7&start=15

and a bit more on the next page.
Subscriptions don't work for me, so I'm unlikely to reply quickly, sorry.

Thanks mate, that's exactly the sort of thing I am after.

Will cruise down to Jaycar this week and get it sorted.

Thanks again

Installed mine today, tapped the same fuse you did.

Thanks for the tips, the thread you have is a gold mine
