hoping to find something to do this tonight at home lol. im about 30 minutes from any stores.
haha gotcha. Sounds like me. Ill start a project and end up needing a random bolt or part and ive got to drop everything and run into town which is 20 min away.
lol yea i had some small pins from a pc fan but they are way smaller than the ones in the pics here so i gotta find something lol
hate to drive 60 miles for something so small too haha
ive tried this multiple ways with different phone wires using the green/red or black/red combo and still get no power even directly to 12v. I dont understand and i have the beltronics like pictured just the 940 model.
Hey Matt i have a couple of questions for you. I have had the solo s2 for like 4 years and used it for a few months at first but then stuck it in my glovebox because i was tired of changing the batteries.
1) How do you keep it from falling down with those 2 little windshield mounts? Mine barely stays on for a day.
2) Do you get a lot of false alarms with it? When i was reading reviews before buying it, it was supposed to be really good for not going off to false alarms. But every time i drive by Walmart it goes wild.
Bumpin your thread again! In the OP you wrote that you used red and green but in this picture i see red and black?
but in this pic
lol i'm just fuckin w/ya. I used the red and black leads from a 3.5" computer power adapter.
Red - Red
Black - Green
Oh! And i use spit and a mf towel on the glass idk what to tell ya there
and Nope, the only bullshit i get is X band going off at red lights, guess our ground radar here for traffic is X.
Local cops use Ka and State-ies run K
And they're LAZY I know they all have instant ON... but they still roll around with the shit on 24/7 anyway
Ah cool thanks for clearing that up.
I saw this on their website for $20 but i might try to glue the cups on or something. They should really come with these new.
Hey Matt! One more question. When you get in your truck and turn the key does it automatically turn on? Or do you still have to push the power button? I got it wired in but i still have to manually turn it on?
run it to an ignition wire and it will come on/off with the key
I have it connected to a yellow wire that gets 12v when the key is turned.
thats awesome wish i could do that with my garmin the only reason its not in my truck i hate that damn cord!
You should be able to do the same thing with your gps. Take the plug apart and you should be able to find the ground and power and just hook it up to an ign source.
does anyone have a link to the pins? I am not sure what size to get molex, d-sub?
Caution.... Do not cut the 12v plug off and wire it in with the gamin gps.
There is a voltage reducer in there and without it you will fry your unit.
I have mine jimmy rigged in with wires around the plugin.
Buddy of mine liked the idea and cut the wire and wired it in and pop!!
$350 down the drain..
For guys with the rearview camera in the mirror, can i still use the same wires to power my detector?
I just bought a blendmount and plan to install it very soon, I already have an "invisicord" from my TBSS.
Did mine today on the Denali and it came out wicked nice....super easy to do. I had to go back and put a smaller pin onto the 12V wire because it fit too loose in the plug. I used the soldering iron to melt the the bigger pin off then soldered on a smaller one and it is snug and powers up with the keyed ignition...SO SICK
