Well I finally got my GPS installed. I wanted a hardwired solution with no wires showing. I also wanted a mount where all I have to do is snap in/out the GPS without having to hook up any wires. Furthermore, I did not want it mounted to the windshield. here's what I came up with:
- Garmin 1695
- Garmin EcoRoute Bluetooth Diagnostics Communicator (hooked up to OBDII port)
- Kuda Mounting Base 292395
- ARKON APGN-VSM Vehicle Specific Mount Adapter Plate
The wiring through the dash was already there as my car originally had the BMW Garmin unit installed. All I did was cut off the existing wiring and wired it to a mini-USB plug from an old Blackberry charger.
I am very pleased with the outcome. The EcoRoute HD is really cool. I have not really explored its full functionality yet...time for a road trip!
