Rocky, Did you get a 2012? I thought you were thinking about it a while back?
You would imagine, but unfortunately Panasonic don't make it that easy certainly the audio pathways on the 2001-2010 audio unit do not become active without a CB connected to the data bus I would not imagine that this has changed as the CB button does not work without a CB preset on the 2012 so even with the pinouts the connector is pretty much useless to you, there are only two manufacturers that have anything that can use that connectorWatching this post also.
If someone had the pinouts for the connectors, that would be great.
I won't pay for the OEM or aftermarket CB.
It should be relatively easy to hook up a regular CB without too much trouble.
Wouldn't have all the functionality, but I would rarely use it anyway.
