    Anyone install the Dension ICE Link as a DIY ?

    Mine arrived today - it's waiting for me at work... have not looked at it yet.... but I can't decide if I want to install it myself or have an installer do it...

    Anyone have any experience yet?

    THANKS

    John: If I was any where near San Fran I'd offer to help you install it. Since I am not all I ask is that you take pictures, lots and lots of pictures, during your install so that people like me can bug you later on for how you did the install when I get around to buying the Dension ICE Link unit. My wife keeps reminding me that the satellite kit makes more sense for us as that is what we listen to in our other cars, and very rarely our iPods.

    Hmm... The in-laws live in Hermosa Beach. Maybe its time to visit them.

    Re: Anyone install the Dension ICE Link as a DIY ?

    Man that thread is 15 pages! There is stuff about the output to the display mixed in with all kinds of other stuff. When I have about three hours to study it, I will see if it is good enogh for me.

    Anyway I don't have a car to put it in yet. Mine is on a boat. I should have my car in a couple of weeks. I will then study the manual and locate the wires and compare to the manual. I will then buy the device and attempt installation.Looks easy enough "from afar".

    Re: Anyone install the Dension ICE Link as a DIY ?

    I have had it installed already....it really is a great piece equipment.....well worth it so do put the time in....

    Re: Anyone install the Dension ICE Link as a DIY ?

    How long did they claim the install took?

    Installers around here claiming FOUR hours to install it...!?!? Looks like a few cables to me....

    Re: Anyone install the Dension ICE Link as a DIY ?

    It took about 2.5/3 hours start to finish......having said that it was the first one they had done so probably took longer than it should have.....plus I had the ipod put into the central arm rest with the 'active cradle', so they had additional wiring to run. My best guess on someone who knows what they are doing and going for a basic install...it shouldn't take no more than a couple of hours at a stretch....
