    Think when you find a station you like you won't be changing that much.
    If you must be channel surfer go ahead and mount it up top.

    OK, I am getting ready to mount an older Delphi Skify unit on a ram mount at clutch, and see that my existing 3.5 MM plug is going to be short. Has anyone used an extension on the existing
    plug located in left hand glove box? If so what did you use, or would it be better to tear into fairing and locate existing 3.5mm wire and replace it with a longer one? Suggestion? Thanks

    I used an extension for years on my my 99 Valkyrie Interstate.
    Get a male/female cable and you should be good.

    Thanks shortleg! Did you lose any clarity with the connection? Have been reading about extension on several other sites and a few have talked about it?

    These 3.5mm male/female audio extensions work with no problem or degradation. It's a short run/extension.

    Generic is usually fine. I keep quite a few different audio cables in my parts drawer. Using one now to go from my GPS to the audio input on my Sena SR10. I was getting alternator humm, so I also inserted a ground loop isolator in the 3.5mm connection. That took away the humm completely. The isolator I used came from Amazon: Mpow Ground Loop Noise Isolator for Car Audio / Home Stereo System with 3.5mm Audio Cable (Black) $8.99
