    The newer 2+ units need an extra 12v supply to pin D16 mate on the quadlock fella, so link 15 & 16 together, don't forget antenna system will be different.

    Cheers mate. Hoped it would be something simple.
    Not looked, but assume the plug is labelled like usual?

    He has the aerial adaptor, think it was double fakra of the top of my head.

    You have to join the two fakra HF connections of the new radio to the existing ISO HF connector, do not connect the fakra ZF connector at all. If you don't the antenna will cut out. So you need a sort of Y adaptor from the radio to the antenna.

    also having issues with the unit. NHN do you have to add in an extra wire myself or can i pull one out from one of the other plugs and put it into another plug?

    Thank you
