Re: WK2 Snorkel

Hickers,

Can you post some pics of your Phone cradle and uhf also when you install them.
I am planning on doing the same thing. I am getting the GME UHF and putting the unit under the dash with my microphone on a bracket down by my left leg, i have no idea where to put my phone caradle yet. I still need to talk the wife into a thumper battery pack..haha

Re: WK2 Snorkel

One question that has me puzzled, is why would you want a snorkel for a Petrol motor ?
I thought that only Diesels used snorkels for water crossings as you can put a diesel underwater running so long as it can breathe.

Petrol motors can cope with water crossings, and modern petrol's have come a long way with water proofing
Also having a snorkel gives you an intake up higher which gives you much cleaner cooler air which is good for any engine

Why do you need an iphone cradle? It connects via bluetooth and you can just leave it connected to power in the top part of the centre console. (There is a USB port at the back)

Re: WK2 Snorkel

My understanding is that USB connection doesn't provide power. Any-ways it doesn't for the ipad.

Re: WK2 Snorkel

USB Ports SHOULD supply power. To test, try charging your phone off one. I would be extremely surprised if they disconneted the power wire in the USB plug. Makes no sense to do it. I know there used to be issues with Sony ipods, which required a special plug, but thought those days were long gone.

Yeah strange I know, but iPad outlines no power. The manual outlines it needs to be synchronized before charging commences. I haven't tried this yet .

Re: WK2 Snorkel

iPads need more power to charge than an ipod/iphone. You will need a ciggy lighter Apple USB plug to charge the beasts. I tried a normal ciggy lighter USB and it did not work, but one designed for the ipad was fine.

I live up north in WA and i am in town i get good reception but as soon as you drive 30KM out of town i have no phone signal, The iPhone cradle also comes with an antenna which gives me considerably greater coverage, I agree i would much rather connect it by bluetooth and put it in the centre console but i need the better coverage provided by the antenna.

Re: WK2 Snorkel

Phone cradle, UHF and heavy duty fridge power supply all done today. Worked out well and will be interested to see what difference the smoothtalker cradle and rfi CDQ mobile aerial make in marginal areas. Nice to remove yet another cigarette plug lead too. Mounted cradle on right hand side alongside wheel attached to a bracket secured behind vent surround with aerial and power lead behind dash side panel. Just need the thumper to turn up and then next week off to dargo and whistlers rest.
When the spots were installed ore were not able to hook them into the high beam supply due to the canbus wiring so they are manual on off only, anyone have any ideas how this could be resolved. Thanks
