Have mine on the console towards the dash and drivers side...seems to be easily acccessible to adjust but then again one doesnt have much option to test any where else in a 100 series.....one day they'll make em with a facility to accomadate a UHF or HF but I wont hold my breath waitingWow! am I cute

My 100 Series GXL (manual) has my 3400 head unit mounted to the front of the ashtray. The cable to the main unit goes beneath the ashtray and the main unit is completely invisible as its mounted on the transmission tunnel UNDERNEATH the gearstick surround towards the front. The only visible part is the head unit and microphone and the sound quality does not seem to be muffled at all. The ashtray still functions properly.
Mine was installed by Telstat in Seaford (Vic).
I can send a photo to your email address if you provide it here (as long as this is today - I leave for the Top End tomorrow morning).

My is installed exactly the same. The head on the Ashtray. That way if and when I sell the truck no ugly holes in the dash or elsewhere, and if I really need to a second hand ashtray cover (the part of the ashtray the head is screwed too) will only cost a couple of buxks.

I agree with the other fella. I have mine mounted on the front of the ashtray (removed the ashtray front cover). Ashtray functionality is unimpeded. It's good. Main unit is mounted behind console and appears unmuffled (although not a huge amount of volume on noise/ rough roads)

TX3400 is a good unit though. very happy with it.

lod,
i have my TX3400 in my 100 series mounted in the slot directly in front of the consol. The mike lays behind the low range lever, so no need to mount mike bracket.

Head unit mounted on the side of the transmissin tunnel (Right where the transmission temperature warning label is on the Auto) with the cable run straight into the tunnel and forward to the dash.

GME Mic holder screwed onto the blanking plate under the Aux tank switch.

The box can be mounted up under the dash below the steering wheel. There is removable section of the aircon duct that supplies the air vent on the right of the dashboard. Remove the duct and screw the GME sliding mount directly on top of that so the radio sits between the duct and the steering coulmn.

I found the hardest part was getting the antennae coax through the firewall - bugger of a job without disassembling most of the dash... I ran it through with the main loom penetration on the passenger side and fished it out the other side with a coathanger poked between the computers and stuff behind the glovebox.

Good Luck, ;-)
