i looked at it and there are some nice ones there. I like it when you can mount it in with the radio. Has any one tried to put it in the glove box. I just like how it would be out of site when im not using it.

You could put it in the glove box but you'd have to run a external speaker and put that somewhere. It just isn't really useful in a closed up location like that. Mounting it behind your seat keeps it out of your way but you can still use it with out having to fumble through the glovebox.

This one is pretty small, and the best part is it's a Cobra.

I spent a little more on mine so I could still have PA but no base unit to get in the way. I have the Cobra 76XRT. The only downside is the ridiculously bright color. You don't have to use the trippy *** magnet mount antenna that comes with if you don't want to.

Hey, check out this thread, i did the same thing with my police scanner in my old chevy and it worked just fine. The only problem i can see is needing an ext. speaker.
