Thanks! Din-1/2 would definitely be tough to deal with. You might look into this upcoming product: LINK It could be easier to deal with, fitment-wise. Downsides include a relatively weak processor and lack of bluetooth. Good luck!Nice job! I'm planning something similar in my C5. I really wish I didn't have this damn din and a half nonsense. Thanks GM. Lol. It would make doing what your doing a lot easier. I'm interested to see this build unfold.
Thanks! The only problem I fear is an overheating issue on hot days here in El Paso. At least since summer is over, I don't think I'll have to deal with it for a while.Sweet job. Hope that tab doesn't give any probs. feat build man!
Thanks!Super clean install, looks great!
How do update info on it when it's installed in the dash? Like if you wanted to add MP3 or videos? Do you have to uninstall or can you access a connector somewhere/
Tell yer buddy to keep rocking! DoubleD has a great rep over on the vette forums, I'm sure they treated your buddy well.Is this the Samsung with the telephone also? Sorry if I missed this but those
are magnets holding it in place? How well does the GPS work? I've been asking
around to see if anyone is making an adaptor, that uses TOSLINK vs RCA?
How are you switching the amps on?
Thanks for your help, and I LOVE this install! I have sent it to a buddy of mine
that has an 04. He just ordered his bezel and sub enclosure from Double D Mods.
I haven't seen it yet but he says it sounds really good, that is all relative being he
is 65 years old.... :surprised::laugh:Rock on Daddy O
I know of no tablet with digital audio output of any kind outside of APT-X. Put it this way, if you find a tablet with a high quality digital audio output, I'll be very angry that I didn't find it before I bought and installed my system! Like I've said in other posts though, as soon as my crazy loud exhaust starts singing, no way ANYONE would be able to tell the difference between a processed signal vs. all digital. :laugh:Thanks for your fast reply.
About the RCA vs TOSLINK
My head unit or processor rather (SONY XES-P1) does have a analog to digital converter built in it so technically it will convert the signal to digital but I was hoping to use fiber optic directly from the 7.0 or 7.7 to the processor to cut down on potential noise. But I have been unable to find a dock that would go from the headphone jack, mini USB (OR whatever it has) or the bottom plug to TOSLINK fiber optic.
So, my question is do you know of a product to run fiber optic directly from the Samsung to my processor?
Yes, it seems the people at Double D are good folk. That build a number of product for these cars, best of all it looks rather stock. Funny enough before I was able to send him the photo's of your car he called me to see if I would come over tomorrow and tune his system. Pretty much the only thing he knows how to do is turn it up, off, change a channel, and radio station. I'm looking forward to hearing it. I'm just glad he didn't go to a local shop and get raped, because he knows so very little. He purchased every single product I recommended and is over the moon with how it sounds. It was a real chore to sell him on buying a woofer just because at his age he thought it would be "boom boom" he no want "BOOM BOOM" LOL. He also didn't want to spend a fortune. I'll have to get a grand total of what it all costs. And take a few photo's.
Thats pretty much what I'm doing. Eventually I'll re-work the opening for a tablet but I think for the time being its going to have to be my android phone via toslink to my 360.3 processor. I didn't realize the Note 2 was going to be compatible with the Apt-X technology. That's good to know since my EVO LTE is off to service for the third time.Thanks!

EDIT: That tablet doesn't have GPS, either. That'd probably be a deal breaker. Maybe a Galaxy Note 2? LINK It has impressive specs and supports APT-X technology which could prove very useful in a carputer environment.
You have a 3sixty.3?? I am jack's complete jealousy. I really want one, but $$$$$!!!! I had a 3sixty.2 in my IS350 and loved it, despite it's noise floor issues. I have a 4-way stereo system in the vette, so the 3sixty.3 was practically MADE FOR ME!! You should just donate yours to me...Thats pretty much what I'm doing.

Dang, under $500 on Crutchfield? Open box? Refurb? I'll have to keep my eyes open for that.Haha. I actually scored it for less than $500 from crutchfield. I couldn't pass a deal like that up. I even had a 3sixty.2 before this. Mine however never really had a noise floor issue; well not nearly as bad as I've heard others describe their units.
I'm pulling toslink out of my phone via an mhl adapter. I have an hdmi swithcher that will pull the toslink audio out of the hdmi from the mhl adapter. Pure digital audio.
Dang, I need to find a deal like that!!Open box. The guy I talked to at crutchfield was 99% sure it was the unit they opened to take pics for the site. So essentially its brand new.
