I just got the uniden bearcat pro505xl
Cb radio, and can't really find a good place to
Fit with easy access but not have it in the way. I was thinking about putting it on my dash. Any other cheap ideas?

Inside your armrest console? Out of sight, out of mind for the passer by thief.
You can remote a speaker so you can still hear it.

Yeah I was thinking that. The lock is stripped on my armrest so I'd have to replace that before I do it. Plus I've never wired anything to a car so that would be a good first start

I mounted mine under the glovebox, almost touching the center console, then ran the mike over console and mounted on the panel just below the gauge cluster. seems to work just fine...

Wiring.... a red hot wire, a black ground wire and you there. Screw on a co-ax for the antenna and plug in your remote speaker, this should be a very simple install. As to location....... probably under dash in the center ahead of the shifters. Remember if you put it in some akward place without 'line of sight' you will likely wish you had mounted it in a better viewable place.

The mic cord swinging back and forth in my field of view would be annoying. JMHO.

I don't sit on the dash and drive, my head is no where near it.:cool:
Then move your seat all the way forward and lean in. Take it like a man!

I am considering buying a new CB, but would mount it low and out of sight, and for vol, chls etc just use the control on the mike.
Get this one then.......



Only thing that shows is the mic, and it is detachable. The head unit mounts behind the dash. I am very happy with mine.





I'm getting another one for my motorhome. Less dash clutter.

You know you can get the hidden box seperately and just move the handset between vehicles?

Yeah I know, but I want two. I'm greedy that way.
