Well once I got used to the new ride, I quickly decided to make the most of it and started getting the countermeasures in place.
About two days after the accident http://www.radardetector.net/forums/...ommission.html I had a V1 on the way. This was installed the first nice day after I bought the Forester:
I was a little unmotivated to do much else initially, but seeing my antennas sitting in the closet and not doing anything about it, just isn't right. I ordered two Comet lip mounts. They're pretty sweet, they have 4 adjustable planes, great for hatches, and if I knew how adjustable they were, I would've had them on the Audi, instead of grasshopper antennas. I put the CB antenna on one, and a Laird multi-band antenna on the other. I'm going to use it for my GPS for now, and maybe down the road get another scanner. These pics show each antenna on the same mount, but I'll add an updated picture tomorrow. As it stands now, the GPS antenna is on the drivers side and the CB antenna on the passengers side. Here they are:
I also installed a Midland CB. It fit PERFECT in the old ashtray slot. the slot took minimal adjustment, but the CB doesn't even move:
I also got a garmin nuvi 755t, it was a time consuming hardwire, for a number of reasons, but well worth it:
