This will be a short entry to tell you about a lot of electronics work that I’ve nearly finished. First was a fairly slick smartphone mount. I prefer to avoid using my USB port by charging my phone wirelessly. It’s not easy to find a suitable wireless charger. So I found one I liked and then GOOP’d it to a ProClip mount that’s designed for my car. I don’t like unsightly power cord runs, so I routed mine through the AC duct and behind the dash, plugging it into a 12V outlet that’s inside my arm rest. I had to disassemble the center console to pull it off, but I’m pleased with the outcome. I’ve shared some photos below my signature.
I’ve also made major strides with a substantial electronics project. Everything works, but I have a minor hiccup to address with my 4-gauge 12V pair; plus, I’m still researching antenna options. Regardless, I’ve shared the details on two new pages, which are subpages of the “My GTI” page (menu above):
Electronics Suite – A new page that details my upgrade to the Helix Sound System as well as the groundwork for my communications suite.
Communications – A new page that details my ham radio installation. It’s nearly complete.
