    Question TM-701L inline fuse help

    Hi This is my first post, I have been reading through some of the posts over the past two months, finally decided to get the
    TM-701L from Armen.

    Thanks everyone, I learned a lot more here than I ever did from books.

    I just got my TM-701L from Armen. Havent turned it on yet, I have search the site, I found the only information about fuse used on TM-701L is 5amp. Is this eveybody else using? I put an inlinefuse with 5 amp right now, but wasnt sure enough to turn it on yet.

    Any suggestion will be very helpful.

    Thanks in advance
    Dan

    Thanks, I was afraid putting too much power into the screen and burn it out.

    by the way, last time i asked Armen, he suggested i splice the LCD power wire from the CD deck power wires. Maybe I should put a bigger fuse for the deck power wire, (not bigger fuse for the actual deck).

    Does that sound right?

    Thanks

    if you splice into that.. put it right after the splice.. so make sure its a fuse dedicated to your lcd.

    hmm your more worried about current then the voltage that your car will supply to your screen? dont worry about the fuse. No matter what you tap into for your screen there will be a fuse there. BUT if you must a 5 Amp fuse will be fine.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    hijinks21: thanks for the suggestion. i made sure it was dedicated to the LCD.

    samc: Thanks for your input, I am a total stranger comes to electric engineer, can you explain in a simpler way for me? what do you mean there is a fuse no matter what? I wasnt even aware of the dangerous of excessive voltage, is there anything I can put in the power line to prevent high voltage from happening?

    Thank you very much.

    use a voltage regulator to keep a clean 12v
