I started out with just the METRA GMRC-02 wire harness, antenna adapter and generic install kit. I soldered all the connections and used heat shrink tubing to protect them. I didn't connect the brake wires because I wasn't really worried about watching videos while I drive.
Once I got everything hooked up I was really confused about why I couldn't change the time and date. Turns out watching videos isn't the only thing that get's blocked when those brake wires aren't connected. So I went ahead and ordered the PAC-7 and once I got it added to the wire harness, all seemed well.
I then tried to watch some videos and I was getting a black display. Turns out I needed that 1/8" cable I had left out thinking it was for auxiliary input. It's actually the video feed.
At any rate, I'm happy with the head unit and now I'm just keeping an eye out for a good price on the KCE-400BT and the TUA-T550HD. Has anyone hooked up the HD radio module? How is it?
I just installed mine with the pac tr-7 and same thing, no video. What do mean by 1/8" cable?
I'm getting into heaven because of woot! yeah!!
