  1. I would like to try the install myself as well but I am confused as to the use of the MOST Loop. I have a 997 with Bose sound and CDC. I plan on following your instructions above to mount the unit behind/under the glove box and I understand all of the electrical connections but the fiber ones have me a little confused. I've downloaded the documents and the porsche install notes from mobridge but I want to be sure before I get started. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
  2. Does anyone know where I could find some good information on this? Or has anyone ever purchased an extended warranty? Thanks,
  3. :help: I purchased my '02 996 in July of last year. Two days after I bought it the engine went. Turns out that the wholesaler that I purchased the car from never bothered to check the oil levels and (stupid me) I didn't either. The engine was replaced under warranty by a local dealer. Everything else has been perfect. I still have two years on the original warranty but I was contemplating purchasing an extended warranty. PCNA does not offer an extended warranty plan unless you purchase it from a dealer. So my question is has anyone else done this and how much should I expect to pay.
  4. Thanks again Tool Pants. I guess I was under the mistaken impression that the antenna had to be mounted on the outside of the car. I have the unit "rigged" in my winter DD - a pathfinder and I have tried the antenna on the dash and on the roof. While on the dash I experience spotty reception. Is that a special antenna or the one that comes with the unit? You wouldn't happen to know the answer to the other question about direct wiring the unit through the CD player would you? Or have most of the installs you've seen been done with a modulator?
  5. ToolPants - Thanks for the suggestion. It is clearly the most logical I have heard. So the antenna sits on the front trunk lid or off to the side?
  6. Just as a follow up.....I called Becker the other day and the service person there did some quick thinking while we were on the phone and said there MIGHT be a way to do this although he had never tried this method. I thought I understood him but now I realize that I didn't. His thought was that you could purchase two six foot RCA cables - essentially running one from the adapter to the CD changer and one from the adapter to the Roady unit. In order to change between the two you'd have to manually reach under the dash (where the adapter would be) and unplug one and plug the other in. Both
  7. :help: My wife purchased the Roady for me for Christmas and I would like to install by myself. I am looking for any suggestions on mounting the antenna and running the wire. The antenna itself is very small (about 2 inches square) and is generally mounted (via magnet) towards the rear of the roof. My question is how should I run the wire to get it inside the vehicle. Most websites I have seen say that you can press the wire under the weatherstripping but are silent as to how to then get it into the car itself. My thought is to get it into the engine compartment and then find some wire
