Radio Running

The new radio that supports my Bluetooth phone (and HD radio, as a bonus) is now installed, thanks to the kind efforts of dave_ifversen who did a lot of very nice soldering as part of the process. While he was handling that, I was trying to figure out how to get the mounting bracket to mount onto the radio. And it turns out that first you have to take the trim plate off the radio. And then you have to remove a metal sheath from the radio. And finally you have to remove some more metal from both sides of the radio.

And then the mounting bracket will fit. It even fits well.

After all the soldering, the actual installation was mostly anticlimactic, other than the placement of the external microphone.

Tomorrow, I'll see how it works with my iPod. (One of the requirements for the radio was that it have a front USB port and a front AUX in. The fact that it comes with a real volume knob and real buttons is a bonus. :) )

Thanks, Dave!
