had to check spare tire pressure before my trip to finals.

more finals prep - my buddy helped me detail my car. removed metal flakes, cleaned up swirl marks, put a good sealant on it.


he shamed me into polishing my tips


we began the trek from socal to louisville today.

my car came w/ the rcd-310 radio+mdi (ipod/usb/etc connector). upgrading to the rns-315 and rns-510, i didn't have to do anything - just replug the radio.

while tuning this summer, i wanted to use line-in from my laptop. it sounded really distorted. poking around online, the mdi aux wires needed to be repinned for upgraded radios. so i repinned. that worked but broke my ipod.

i never did use the line-in from laptop, just bluetooth paired my laptop for signals. this worked fine.

today i repinned the connector correctly. blue harness:
pin 1: yellow
pin 2: green
pin 7: gray

yay i have proper ipod inputs again!

(i leave an ipod touch in my center console and update it over wifi)
