  • GME XRS Extension cable

    Hi all,

    I am replacing the card holder slot in my NX Pajero with a switch panel and one of the switches slots will include a RJ45 passthrough for a UHF. I am planning on buying a GME XRS system in the future, but while I got the dash apart I plan to install the extension cable before I get the radio.

    I had a look and a genuine GME extension cable is $30 for. 1.8m cable. https://www.gme.net.au/au/accessories/le040/

    To me this is just a standard cat6 cable which is much cheaper than $30 even from a reputable supplier. https://www.4cabling.com.au/1-5m-rj4...le-yellow.html

    Am I mistaken is there something special about the GME cable?

    Nope it will be a standard cable. Just make sure you get the correct network cable and not a cross over cable.

      Well, yes and no.
      If the jack is configured for straight through then yes.
      But I purchased an RJ45 panel socket a while ago and it definitely created a crossover . . . . which then needed to be reversed by the extension cable.

        I have the GME pass through, so I assume it is just the standard network cable like Dicko mentioned.

          Yes standard. I use to be a techy for telstra and used thousands of these cables for all types of comms equipment.
