Radio pro 4 wiring


You should purchase a radio harness for your car, and it's wires will connect to wires of the same color from your JVC radio harness. Join the two harnesses together (solder, crimp caps, barrel connectors, etc.) and then one end plugs into your JVC, the other end plugs into the factory harness that the original radio was connected to. If for some reason, your factory harness plug has been cut, you'll have to hardwire the JVC harness. I've included a link to the wiring diagram for your car. The steering wheel controls are moot; they will not work unless you've got some aftermarket adapter that allows them to interface with the JVC radio.

I HAVE A F900BT WILL IT FIT IN MY 2010 CHEVY TRAVERSE? AND IS IT ALL PLUG & PLAY


It will fit, but the parts are expensive and it is not plug and play.

Parts needed:

Dash kit- Metra 99-3305 About $15-$20

Antenna adapter- Metra 40-CR10 (Chrysler antenna adapter) Yes GM uses Chrysler parts. About $10-$15

Wire harness/Interface- GMOS-LAN-01 (non bose or onstar) About $100
GMOS-LAN-02 (bose/onstar) About $120

The reason for the pricey harness is to retain data features on the vehicle and to interface with Onstar (GMOS02).

This is the right way so don't cut corners because it can cause issues on your brand new vehicle.

All of your safety chimes run through the stereo and not using the correct interface can cause issues with your gauges

www.metraonline.com or www.scosche.com are good sources for install parts info

Tried to attach to computer to update since then all I get when turning it on is a flashing red cross and can not soft reset


Since you have said that your TomTom is only displaying a flashing cross (or "X"), it is because the TomTom application is not installed or can not be found. This usually happenes when you attempt to update your unit and it is interrupted (i.e., not properly disconnected from the computer, the TomTom was underpowered by using a USB port on your monitor/keyboard, or lost power during the update. In fact, it might just be pissy.)

Down to how to fix it: You essentially just need to reinstall the application.

1. Soft reset (I know you have already done this but am providing a link just in case: http://uk.support.tomtom.com/cgi-bin/tomtom_uk.cfg/php/enduser/popup_adp.php?&p_faqid=6965)

2. Connect you’re GPS unit to your computer

3. Press the power button for about 5 seconds and the TomTom Home will start.

NOTE: It is highly recommended that you use TomTom HOME to make a backup. You can find out how to do this here: http://uk.support.tomtom.com/cgi-bin/tomtom_uk.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=3171&Lid=1

4. Delete application files (so we can do a clean install), to do this:
- in HOME, click "MANAGE MY NAVIGATION DEVICE"
- Select the ITEMS ON DEVICE tab and tick the box by "APPLICATIONS".
- Then click REMOVE ITEMS FROM DEVICE
- A warning will pop-up, click "OK"
- Select the ITEMS ON COMPUTER tab and tick the box by APPLICATIONS
- Then click REMOVE ITEMS FROM COMPUTER
- Another warning will pop-up, click "OK"

5. Reinstall the TomTom Application by clicking UPDATE MY DEVICE
- Then click UPDATE AND INSTALL
- Once done, click DEVICE > DISCONNECT DEVICE

6. Next, we're going to run the TomTom Clear Flash Tool (the downloads include step-by-step directions for clearing the flash)
- for windows: http://www.tomtom.com/updates/clear_flash/clear_flash.exe
- for mac: http://www.tomtom.com/updates/clear_flash/clear_flash.dmg

7. Safely disconnect.
- on windows: click the SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE ICON (a icon with a green arrow that is hanging out in the system tray and then choose "USB MASS STORAGE DEVICE" from the pop-up
-on a mac: drag the desktop icon of your device to your trash.

8. Your device should start up automatically. If it hasn't within 10-15 seconds, press the on/off button.

You're done!
If by chance this still doesn’t work, you can try formatting the internal memory or memory card of your TomTom. If you need a link or directions, simply send me a message or reply!

Hope this helps!

Last june we tried to update our tomtom that was


If you have an SD card installed then
Remove the SD card from the tomtom

Try the hard reset.
Push a Paper clip in the tiny hole by the card slot.
Push it in firmly whilst the unit is powered up (not too hard) for about 3 seconds then release.

You may have to power down and then up again and even hold down the power button a little longer the first time you do this.

That would normally reset the tomtom.

If it does then get the latest version of TOMTOM HOME
Install it and run the program.

Now with your GPS tunred off connect it to your computer via a short USB lead.

TTH will now start up and from there you can update the tomtom itself.

If you are getting a red cross whilst bootng the GPS then
The card may need to be formatted properly first or re-formatted.

Formatting is better done in a card reader.

There are differing views but this method has always worked for me.
Insert the card in the reader,. Using my computer or windows explorer

right click on it and select format
select FAT32 as the files system

Now connect the tomtom to the pc but don't let tomtom home run.
Exit TomTom Home if need be.

You now need to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive and may even show its own special icon.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options.
Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.
then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card.

DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !

T-harness does not fit remote start unit


If the ends don't fit in to your remote start unit you will have to cut them and splice into them, or if you mail me both harnesses I will do it for you for free, you would have to pay for me to ship it back to you of course but I think you could do it your self or if you know someone who knows how to solder
