The install went well. Took about 30 minutes to get it in the vent piece. Looks really nice. Gotta love the 00+ interior.

The wire....well, not much of a hold up. I know the red goes to a power lead. I'll use a HUD wire. Wondering what to do with the other 2 wires. The instructions don't mention them.

The red wire is the only one you'll need. The other two are for analog connections.

It is in the instructions
Go to their site and print out the PDF file,it'* much easier to read than the little manual they send ya.

That'* a beautiful install. Those round vents come in handy, eh?

It sure would be nice to have one of those things... wish they were cheaper.

What would really be nice is if GM did that from the factory, integrated with the DIC. Seems like a no-brainer.

Thanks Scott! I had a feeling I only needed the red. I skipped the analog paragraph because I wasn't using them. I just read it. Now it all makes sense.

I removed the red jumper from the back of the gauge. I'll have it all installed tonight after work!
