i replaced my flasher, and no junkyard for that part. takes about an hour to remove and they tend to go on the park aves around 100k.


then i installed my drive-in under the bumper speakers.


tonight ive been on a youtube kick. as a result of that, i think ill be buying a raspberry pi and a wifi adapter for it. tether it to my phone, and ill have internets in the car! (mainly want to do this to use netflix and pandora without paying for the outrageous adapters to do so. this project will cost around $50 with almost unlimited options.

If his car stereo had one of those huge screens, he could plug that mini computer into it and have a computer in his car. I've seen it done before but not with a pi.

my s4 has a 5 inch screen, and can do all that and bluetooth the sound to the head unit, seems alot easier. plus its 2ghz and 2gb ram and android 4.4 is very fast.

It'* like trying to explain NASCAR to someone who thinks its just driving in circles. It obviously isn't your cup of tea. I hate having to start the music off my phone everytime I get in my car. Much more convenient if it'* already stored in the car with an integrated system that handles everything.

you dont have to push any buttons on mine either the HU comes on, syncs with my phone and brings up the player and starts playing. why i like android you can pretty much do anything you want it to. best part of the phone is its free. well sometimes when i got it it was still like 50 bucks but best buy has had it free a couple times, they have the S5 coming out so the 4 is going to be cheap, and they really didnt change much but the name that i saw
