they take too long to install...

All u have to do is lift the Not ashtray / cig lighter door and pull the plate off. U don't need to even unplug the heated seats / take off shifter knob. They waste so much time even bothering d/c battery

I can remove the cubby within 1-2 minutes and there is no need to go thru half their steps (the early few)

I just watched a lot of the videos from that member. Really entertaining, specially all the pitches. Makes me feel a bit nostalgic when I used to pitch in little leagues and what not, hahaha.

How would you get the "not an ashtray" and cig lighter out without removing the two screws that are hidden under the gearshift trim?

Basically I did it the way he did...cept I never used a mirror nor did I disconnect the battery (I did however pull all the interior fuses that related to anything in the area....power accessories, radio, airbags, seat warmers, etc, etc). If I do decide on buying a Parrot Bluetooth kit I guess I'll be doing this all over again to install it...heh.

u do ply that gearshift trim off, but u dont need to take it off all the way. That guy wastes a lotta time unscrewing parts that don't pertain/hinder ur install. U don't even need to unplug the heat seats power either. Just move the part aside a lil bit, and u can still reach w/e u tryin to reach. No need to d/c battery either, jus plug the damn aux in when car radio is off and u shouldn't blow anything.

thats a good video. another idea, that i like better, is to run the cord straight back into the center console compartment, as oppose to the cd compartment under the radio. its easier to install, as well as easier to store/play with the ipod while driving or wtvr.
i have it come out right next the ac adapter and run the wire up onto the top tray in that compartment. or, if you have a cup insert ipod holder, you can run it right out of the compartment and into the ipod in the cup holder next to the compartment. gives a very clean look, you almost cant see the wire at all and you dont have to reach for the ipod when youre driving- its right next to your ebrake. i got a couple pics of it on my cardomain if you wanna take a look.

Its a good video ..I proved invaluable when installing my Soundgate ....... I dont have a Ipod but for those that use Ipods why dont you use a Griffin Ipod remote control to control the Ipod ? They're like 15 to 20 dollars.

off topic, but the parrot bluetooth kit is amazing imo. it works really well. i might relocate the unit though.. still thinking about it..


but in terms of the diy, i basically did the same process when i installed my bluetooth kit.

hey two quick questions

1) can you install this on a 03 accord that doesn't have XM?

2) how would you utilize the bluetooth? (i.e. with what setup/devices,etc)
