Pioneer DEH-P3800MP and AUX Input #3
This is becoming a chronicle.
Last night, I picked up the iPod and XM Radio IP-Bus receivers. Not too bad on the price, but… Best Buy wanted to turn me over and rape me for 100$~ to install them and it’d be 3-5 hours to install. Uhh… whatever.
So, I got home and, feeling adventreous, I took the dash out of my car and had a look. *gasp*
The Connect2 cable that they had put in was barely electrical taped in–no solder or anything. The techie in me fumed. Things were just hanging in the back. I paid for this installation too…
So, I figured I couldn’t screw it up NEARLY that bad. With parental guidance (aka: not shocking the shit out of me by getting the (-) battery connector unplugged), we managed to get the iPod connector, XM radio connector, and everything mounted, grounded, and soldered in properly. VERY sweet. Sound is amazing, I’m a happy geek, and they all lived happily ever after.
