GL2way without a doubt, feature packed and identically plug-n-play as the OEM. But you may have to wait as Pete (bikemp3/gl2way) indicates that he is working on getting the new-style connectors. Since the 2012 uses a different connection, you can not use any of the older OEM CBs, so if you do chose to go OEM make sure it is the right one. Pete did indicate he might be offering a cable to permit the earlier OEM CBs to connect to the 2012 Wing though ...My 2012 GL1800 didn't come with a CB radio. i see several choices on the net. Which one should I buy, and from where?
Units are the same. I suggested Sierra because I believe they have developed a superior splitter for their single antenna.A Honda mechanic I know wondered if these units have filters to prevent noise from the fans and the fuel pump. I have no idea and wonder if others know about this? I too am interested in a CB purchase. Is the Sierra the same as the one on WingStuff? If not which is better?
Not bashing the poster. You may not be aware of the capabilities of the GL2way and it's integration into the Wing. It is still cheaper than the OEM with many more features and basically installs the same as the OEM. Not sure what year Wing you are talking about the CB mounting under the radio-has to be a 2012 because neither the Honda CB nor the GL2way mounts under the radio on any previous GL1800Go with the Honda OEM. Ease of installation and cb intergrates with the rest of the audio system. Install the antenna, place the CB under the radio, then plug in the cb powerplug and audioplug to the radio and then connect the antenna. CB is crystal clear and doesn't appear to require any other noise filters. HDL has the CB and antenna on sale.
Both mount in the "pocket" below the floor of the trunk.Does the OEM mount in the trunk as well?
I was reading about the LD2way and it sounds interesting and it great that its cheaper. I just can't deceide if I want the splitter or the 2nd antenna.
