im a scooby guru


made progress over the weekend

fitting headunit in the glovebox was harder than i anticipated. the radio harness actually is long enough to reach glovebox with extra slack. i actually ordered extra wiring but doesnt appear like ill need it. it just depends on where you drill into your glovebox to fish the wire in. the antenna on the other hand will barely reach so i recommend an extension. i have an extension coming on the way from amazon.

i originally was going to use the USB port on the headunit to charge the kindle but it looks like the 1amp isnt enough .looks like im better off taping into the cigarette lighter for power at this point. anyone know whats the best way to do that?

also im pretty sure ill be switching to a nexus 7 very soon. kindle is great and all but gps and bluetooth built in is a big plus.

but all in all, it works great so far and as expected

all that left to do is clean it up a little bit. figure our tasker app and then switch to a nexus 7
