    Double DIN JVC Head unit with Ipod and Bluetooth, Speaker replacement, 200 W Alpine Amp. Glove box twin 12V power outlets
    Reading through the threads and mod instructions, plus lots of input from all you TW members, I did my research and installed the Scoche dash kit, a beautiful JVC double DIN with.....

    ----- DVD,CD/CDRW,IPOD (adaptor),USB,SD slot, SAT radio and regular radio. And best of all blue tooth through the head unit with on-screen control, caller ID, text messages. IT IS AWESOME !!!!! You can see where i put the mic up on the pillar with a small piece of velcro stuck to the ceiling.

    Plus I installed 4 new Pioneer speakers with parts from Tacotunes.
    (could not believe how cheap the OEM speaker are).

    So again THANKS to all TW members that helped me out.

    Here are some pics of my install.

    Also note the power outlets I added in the glove box because moding that power outlet relay was too tricky...I ran a wire to the battery, fused it and cut up a splitter from the local auto supply.

    Nice clean job I love that double DIN look in the new tacos. BTW, what's the thing next to the MP3 player?

    Ahhh....Ipod (with tape on it), thumb drive on the USB cable.
    And the two power adaptors. I lined the box with felt to keep things safe and quiet, I also put my invertor in there for charging 100V stuff.

    Did your unit have two USB inputs like a pigtails or did you add a splitter?

    Chaser:::: I did get an installation instruction with the unit.
    Before I bought it, I went online to their website and downloaded it so I could see before hand what was involved. Thats my advice, I'm sure you can get it. If not, I do have the PDF for the units. Just let me know.

    Italyn ::::I'm confused, there is only one USB input that came with unit. I had to put an extension to get it into the glove box.

    Hope that helps.
    Let me know.

    This is an old post.
    But the unit has been working great since the install.
    So just let me know if you need anything else.
