Who has the second gen and installed on a base? Have a question about the black female end wire. Looks like a video cable with a red clip on it? I can't seem figure out where it is supposed to connect
Not sure if you're talking about the antenna whereas the new one is white?

I have a second gen on a base car, and I simply connected the head unit to the internet, google searched a picture I liked, and touched and held the picture for a couple of seconds. A box prompting me with options appeared, and I chose set as background. Once done, I didn't think it worked, because the original picture was there on the next startup. It takes something like two starts and opening the driver's door for the setting to take.

I dont think its in the settings like the wallpaper.
There is an icon for that called boot image or something like that. If you have Nova installed you go to all apps and its there.

Those cd player plugs were a pain. At that point I took an hour break to get my focus back and then came back and was able to unlock the clips :frusty:

Got them out in about 2 minutes thanks to removing the box. Huge relief! :headbang:

You're close. Plugging the hu is definitely much easier. Just plug in all the old wires as well as two or three of the new ones and you're set

Should I reinstall the Black Box I removed that was sitting behind the old screen?

I recommend testing everything before finishing the job. Test reverse cam, radio, Bluetooth, Navigation, etc. If everything works you should be good :cheers:

As for the black box I'm not sure. I guess if everything works then screw the black box lol

I appreciate the help. I purchased a front camera and think I'll have to tap out tonight. Tons of wires all labeled in chinese. I have no clue where to even begin
