Last weekend I was traveling with my wife near Philly PA. She has a
hybrid Toyota Highlander. I had a D7AG with a battery eliminator
connected to the cigarette plug, my Garmin 60CSx also connected to the
same plug and the cell phone connected to also the same plug plus a
short mag mount antenna on the roof. This system worked well and I the
grandchildren could follow our approach on the web. I received many
signals, as I was curious I did not set a range. I received your signal
too on Sunday towards noon but the weather was too bad to send anything.
I was just lucky I managed to glance at the D7 at the right time. We
were about 20 miles apart.
There was no interference, noise or otherwise problems with this setup.
Sure I was not drawing much power with the HT but since it was a less
than ideal setup, I thought you might want to know it worked well.
Good luck with the Prius.
