WK iPhone/iPod Cable to Center Console
 
I did this almost 2 months ago and posted it on JU. Now I'm posting it here:


Removed my cheap ass single din in-dash DVD player and installed a new Pioneer 7" double din DVD player and routed iPod cable inside the center console because putting it in the glove box sucks and in top of that, it's my iPhone 4 that I'm using. You'll be amazed at some of the trash and money you'll find under there. I found a really good ground under the console if anyone is interested. You'll see it in one of the pictures below.

Install time for iPod cable: ~25 minutes

And now to update you really quick, the iPhone/iPod cable in the post above had a short in it. Sonicelectronix will be sending me another one for free. Well me being me, I couldn't wait so I went out and bought a better one. Installed it today.

I had to take the center console out again. To avoid Having to remove it in the future, I decided to go ahead and pull the USB port through the hole so I can switch out cable if need be or even pull the cable out to charge my iPhone with a computer because there is a computer everywhere.

Here is the new bungy cable. I like it better.

The hardest part is the back of the center console that you have to pop off and getting the rubber cup holder out. Other than that, the whole center console is being held in place with two T20 screws and one 10mm bolt.

Audio install shops are behind time with installing the cable in the glove box.

I also did this. So easy and so convenient. I have a 30GB iPod Video that I just leave in my car. It's a lot better than having the cable pinched by the console lid all the time.

Mine doesn't pinch.
