Hi Lyod from John currently in the Middle East ..have a 2011 Sorrento myself and just ordered up a new FT-8900 which I hope to install in my Sorrento once I get back home in 3 weeks. Would be interested to know where or how you ran your power leads from. I know that using the cigarette lighter socket is a No No unless for receiving only and I know that you can,t simply tap into the wiring loom. Is there any route through to the cabin via the bulkhead from the engine side - any info would be welcome ..best regards John
Did you ever find a solution to your mount for the Kia? Have a 2011 myself, and am looking to put a simple external antenna on it for my 2m/440 HTs. Just something basic to hit my local repeaters, tune in NOAA WX radio, etc.
Thinking about a lip mount on the hood/back hatch. Don't want to drill, would rather not do a magnetic mount (had one on another car before, led to fading/circular patterns that I am not interested in). Interested to see what you came up with.
