I would check with Eric at BumperPlugs.com, let him know you got the referral from here and he can tell you whether it can be done within your time and budget constraints.Sorry, I should have been specific - I'd prefer IN the UK, as I suspect there will be less warranty issues (but would like to be pleasantly surprised about that!) and because I'd like to fit it over the Christmas holidays - so, within 2 weeks.
If there is someone in the US who can ship over in that time for a competitive price (I'll add shipping into that cost), and there will still be some sort of useful warranty, I'm open to the idea.
do remember what ever bumper plugs quote you there be addition charges from customs here when it arrives that bumper plugs cant quote you. unless of course you get bumper plugs to mark the item value as less than $25 or mark it as a gift, either of these won't attract custom charges, which believe me can be substantial as they seem to make it up as they go along.Thanks guys - just checking out cost of shipping with BumperPlugs. If that exceeds the cost of the one I've seen from the UK then I'll go for the UK one.
You've made the right decision. Not sure you'd find anyone in the UK to beat £370 (assuming you're talking iPod Car Kit Direct). I ordered from the US very recently and was stiffed with heavy VAT, import and admin charges. Eventually it took the edge off the whole thing.After considering shipping costs and warranty risk I've decided to go for one in the UK - hopefully here in a few days.
Thanks for the help.
You need to configure this... Obviously you only skimmed the manual . That's how its done (If you have PCM):Well, I installed it today - I'll be doing an article in the near future as I haven't seen a RHD install let alone a RHD + PCM + CDC + Nav written up on the net so it may be useful.
It all works fine. The only downside at the moment is that it is just displaying track numbers at not names, neither is it showing playlist names, albums etc. Is this the way it is?
First off, these might help, check the attached file, there is another 2.2MB file that has everything there is about the unit (well, kinda ), but I cant upload it here due to size. If you want I could email it to you!You're quite right, I did only skim the manual and have yet to work out how to switch easily between albums using the USB Stick.
Thanks for the instructions, I can remember seeing them somewhere but weren't relevant because I don't have an iPod and don't really plan to use my iPhone. I don't spend my life with my MP3 player stuck in my ears and so leaving my music on a massive USB stick in the car seems to suit me better. Also, I would have to remember to carry the music with me all the time. I do have the iPod interface so I may connect my iPhone at some stage to see how it works.
Everyone works in different ways, but I have a Creative MP3 that I find sounds miles better than an iPod.
Don't know whether you found this, but the instructions (by necessity I guess) are very generic in part to suit all the other cars.
I don't see the point in that accessory part with the RCA connectors unless
a) you need to connect another video device
b) need to disable the Dension for servicing.
