Just one little thing I noticed that I hadn't caught before.

The BT Camp Speaker has a latch that holds it in place while you're driving. Which is clever! But did anyone else notice that the latch mechanism seems to match their roof rack mount points?

I believe Gear Guard cable can be looped through as well to secure

The gear guard cable has to be looped through an item(s) in the bed and both cable ends plugged in below the air compressor outlet on the drivers side of the bed panel in order to arm the internal wiring of the cable -if it’s cut, you’ll then get an alert on your app and the cameras will record activity. How will the gear guard cable be of any use while attached to the BT speaker with no connections for it as there are in the bed?

Even more clever would have been to come up with a way to make it mount onto the the roof rack mount points.

Both sides is an option not a requirement. You can loop one end through the other end to get more length and plug one end in and it works as well.

I saw a video demonstrating this a while back but cannot locate it at the moment.

OK - but is there a plug for the gear guard cable near the BT speaker in the cab?

I wonder who's going to steal a BT speaker that requires a $70,000 truck to charge it. :facepalm:

I believe the intent is to be able to have the speaker in or around the bed of the truck on the outside yet be secured by threading the gear guard cable through it and locking it to the bed.
