Thank you to Pacific Star Line in Torrance Ca. for the install today. Took a few hours and the result is perfect as usual from these guys. They also did my window tint.
Now I don't have any messy wires hanging around and when I turn on the car, everything powers up via 12 volts! (I believe everything is connected to the back of the 12 volt plug. (I can still plug in a phone charger, etc. to the 12 volt source)
Side view of the V1..
My widescreen Magellan Meastro 5310(saved me what?.. $3,000 from the dealer?)
The best part is.. I can close it! What GPS unit?..
Completely removable if need be (bracket stays in place for easy clip in/out)..
Bracket mounted.. 3 screws and one hole for wire. The thing doesn't budge..
The screen is just about as large as any OEM (but for much less $$)..
Both powered up and ready to go!..
The GPS sits nice and high in an otherwise useless cubby and is easily visible/usable and the door is no nuisance to have open while driving as it is relatively small.
