I finally picked up a ScanMaster and should be able to get to installing it this weekend. Just wondering what you guys have done for the connections.
Ground is pretty straightforward. I was thinking I might need a bullet connector for the wire to the ALDL port? And for the power wire, do I need one of those inline fuse taps?

I used spade connectors. Tapped into fuse box for 12v.....there's 2-3 empty spots for 12 volts there. For the ALDL......I didn't have any mini-spades, so I cut a larger one to about 1/2 width, works fine.

You can even use a tap to just connect it to the wire for the proper pin on the back of the ALDL plug. For the power for mine I tapped into the switched 12v going to the radio. SM uses very little juice so no worries about blowing fuses or anything.
