Hey folks, I've done some searching around regarding hardwiring a Road Angel, and I think I've got that one figured (although it would be nice if someone could confirm which live at the back of the fusebox-panel is to be tapped into on an A3). I'm going for the pretty obvious location (shown in the pic.), so I guess cable-routing shouldn't be a problem. Has anyone ever noticed any problems with mounting the unit here? (Physical mounting issues, cabling, or perhaps laser detection performance?). Also, I want to cut the plug off the cigar-lighter transformer I have for my laptop, and hardwire that too (because as we all know the sockets on Audis are spectacularly poor and the plug on this transformer is on a par). At the moment I have an audio cable popping through the foam at the base of the glove-box/shelf in the passenger footwell, which I use to feed music, DVD and Sat-Nav audio through to my system. I was thinking I could velcro the transformer box to the underside of the shelf (making it easy to change voltage regulators etc. for different laptops), and route the cable the same way into the dash as the audio. The only problem with this is that the run between transformer and cigar-plug is quite short, but I suppose I could extend that a bit. Is there a good place over that side of the dash to tap into a 12V which can handle the additional drain of a laptop? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif The one major thing I would like to do if I'm going to hardwire power for the laptop is figure some way of mounting it so it's safe to glance at the screen for nav-display without the aid of someone in the passenger seat. I think that's going to be the tricky part; I did a bit of looking around on the net and found some systems that attach to the floor using the seat-bolts but these all look a bit too 'permanent' for my liking. I was wondering if any of the bods on here had ever tackled the problem in the past? I'm currently wondering about the possibility of having something fabricated to hang from the open-glovebox, but getting a big enough drop to clear the airbag is a hindrance. Is there any of that Audi-Sport technical-genius (or immaculate-bodging) that could give spark to a crazy solution to the mounting riddle? Thanks and regards, Rob.
