    So I just got back from my truck trying the different ideas everyone had. The way you have your is slick! Up were you have it is perfect, easy to see and use without taking it down every time.

    I can run the cable along the right side of the CB and down the center post. The center post gasket is split in the middle with enough room behind the gasket to hide the cable. Then run it across the dashboard, and down the side to the plug.
    Should I ever have to hand the unit to an officer the cable will come right out of the center post gaskets.

    Thanks again, I never would have thought to put it in that location.
     
    Roberts450 Thanks this.

    @Concorde glad thats going to work out for you. I never thought of splitting the gasket to hide the cable as out here in the northwest I some times have to hand the unit to the guys on the right side of the truck and not just to the left.

    Pro Clip has several options that don’t require drilling a any holes. I have my camera monitor mounted on one that may work for your omnitracs. The bottom pics I have posted, one that holds my IPhone and another that holds my Garmin Dezl GPS. They aren’t cheap but they are good and interchangeable with different devices. My ELD is mounted with a Ram Mount that my carrier used to mount it. They drilled several holes but I was ok with it as I have to have it if I want to be leased to them.
