    Hello,

    GPS systems are standard features in many new vehicle . A GPS system communicates with satellites to provide directions through unfamiliar locations. However, older vehicles don't come with GPS, and many drivers purchase aftermarket systems for their vehicles. Installing a GPS system in your vehicle can increase its value and help make traveling a much more enjoyable experience.

    Instructions And Materials Needed Below.

    • Plastic putty knife,Flat and Phillips screwdriver set,Wrench set,GPS system
    1. Slip the edge of a plastic putty knife under the edge of the radio face and lift the plastic housing off. Most aftermarket GPS systems incorporate a radio or CD player to replace the old stereo.
    2. Loosen the bolts on the left and right side of the stereo and pull it gently out of the dashboard. Unplug the connections at the back of the stereo and unscrew the mounting bracket on each side.
    3. Connect the mounting bracket from the stereo to the sides of the GPS system. If you've purchased the correct GPS unit for the make and model of your vehicle, the bracket will attach with just a screwdriver.
    4. Plug the wires into the back of the GPS system and slide the unit back into the dashboard. The ports on the back of the unit will be color-coded to correspond with the proper wire plugs, so there is no confusion when connecting the unit.
    5. Secure the GPS unit by inserting the bolts back into the bracket and tightening them with the wrench. Replace the plastic cover over the face of the unit and press it down until the plastic holders click into place. Turn the vehicle on and follow the instructions on the screen to program your new GPS system.

    Good Luck.

    Im trying to find where i can gt a complete guide on how to install a car stereo from color coding the wires to installing a dash kit


    1. DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL ON YOUR BATTERY!
    2. For an old stock stereo, you may have to remove the dash or certain parts of it to access the stereo. Do that by locating screws and bolts and taking them off. Make sure to keep them in a safe place.
    3. For an aftermarket stereo, insert DIN tools into each slot on the stereo behind the faceplate. Slide the whole stereo out.
    4. Disconnect the antenna wiring (The wire with the big metal tip)and the stereo head unit wiring (wire harness).
    5. Reconnect the antenna into your new stereo.
    6. Use **** connectors and wire crimps to connect the stock wire harness with a car specific one that is sold seperately. The color of the wires on each harnass should match up.
    7. Reconnect the negative terminal on your battery and see if it works.
    8. Slide the stereo back into the dash and remount the dash that you removed, including screws and bolts.
    hope this will help you

    I want to remove the stock stereo


    Remove the ash tray, if I remember correctly there are three or four screws that mount the ash tray bracket (two are vertical and require a very short screwdriver). WIth this bracket removed, it exposes the bracket that mounts the radio, two or three screws there as well, then the radio just slides out of the dash. The radio will pull out far enough to be able to disconnect the wiring and antenna cable.

    Pioneer Super Tuner 3 Removal


    If it's been installed with the original DIN mount, there are 2 small flat clips that slide in a small slot on each side of the radio. The 2 pieces of metal are pushed in to release the clips holding the radio in the bracket. Then the radio pulls out

    Those clips come with the Pioneer stereo but should be available from a place that sells/installs car audio
