Good advise that I wish I knew before I chased 'saving money' down the rabbit hole a couple years ago. My old 1999 Black and White RL70 radar screen was getting un-readable. So..... I figured I'd just replace that. Nope - no signal from the radome because I was a few hundred serial #'s low of the cutoff for compatability. Ok..... so I buy a new dome. Well.... the new domes instead of connecting in the rear where the cable goes through they connect in the front requiring a couple extra feet of cable inside - That I Didn't Have
So.... now I have to buy another cable. The moral is for me - I should have bought a 'Bundle'.
