Re: How to install after market stereo in ES

I just finished installing this as well. I was really interested in running CanION, and waze on a bigger screen, so I uninstalled my Pioneer and it will be on its way back to Crutchfield tomorrow. There's more to learn with this unit (the Newsmy NU3001). Some observations so far... - iPhone 5S conne...

Re: How to install after market stereo in ES

As Plankton has prepared the path, I too have completed the install. I opted for an Android based unit which I found on aliexpress ( link here ). The bezel was also available on aliexpress from a different supplier ( link here ). Got a wiring harness from a local shop. It's a great upgrade, now I h...

Re: Questions before buying an iMiev

It's my understanding after conferring with the EVSE upgrade people, and a comment from another board member, that only the Panasonic EVSE that came with the 2012 model is upgradeable.

I used the parking brake when in reverse to check if the reverse lights were on (eek).

Re: Single->Double Din Radio, Rear Camera, USB/Aux, Mic Inst

Finally done! I had to route a new video cable because the one that came with the camera died during the installation... Ran a wire only (much easier) and then soldered a connector on after it was at the front seat. Also had to run extension wires for power to the camera, since the ones that came wi...

Re: Single->Double Din Radio, Rear Camera, USB/Aux, Mic Inst

Give me enough time and... It is the white wire, as I suspected, which connects to the red wire with blue strip that runs to the lamp itself. Just to bring you up to date, I have the camera physically installed, but either I have a bad video wire, or I messed up one of the connectors trying to run t...

Re: Single->Double Din Radio, Rear Camera, USB/Aux, Mic Inst

How does the piece fit if you take off the top-center clip and use the top clips on either side instead? It does fit better that way, though I think I do want the black trim. I did order the OEM black trim, so I will sell this silver trim when I receive the OEM. PM me if you are interested. The ste...

Re: Single->Double Din Radio, Rear Camera, USB/Aux, Mic Inst

First update... I'm not going to use the center panel trim piece that I bought for $60. It doesn't seem to fit too well, or I just don't know what I'm doing.
