I'm just wondering since I have to use the AXXESS CHTO-03 to tap into the factory amp in my Jeep, on the axxess harness itself is a 12v line that is used to power up a HU. Since I'm not using a HU can I use that 12v line to power my P5USB ? I planned on placing it where the radio used to be since there is tons of room in there and easy access...
So. Someone said you can put this together for ~$20 in component cost. You say programming the micro should take a couple of hours. Then there's the matter of physical build of the board (whatever configuration you end up coming up with). How much time does that take? Let's say an hour for giggles.
Now here's the real kicker of a question. How much is your time worth to you? I know many professionals who won't take a job for under $40/hour. That blows the price right out of the water immediately. Your $20 (in components) hub now costs somewhere closer to $140 (counting an arbitrary $40/hour for your time).
I don't know about anyone else, but $65 is quite a cheap price for 3 hours of my time.
does this work w/o the accesory wire attached? cos i've forgot to put it on to the car.
erm.. where's the manual?
at 2:30 seconds, goce talks about power on / off options.
A product brief is also here.
There are no other documents available other than what is on the link above. Sorry for the confusion.
my question is, why do i need a ACC connection if the hub can power its self on when the computer comes on?
can the hub be powered only off of an ACC connection? heres why: for one i am going to be running this hub in my center consul and its very cumbersome to try and run a constant 12v to that area. while i already have a 12v ACC connection right there for my cigarette lighter.
one other thought is, why on god earth would you put the upstream USB connection on the same side as the downstream? Now i am going to have to run a USB cable off the fron and wrap it around back underneath the hub. seems like the upstream would have been better to have on the opposite side or even one of the other sides would have been ok... just a thought.
Yes it can be run just off the ACC, that is how mine is running.
I like it same side, having cables on both sides would just increase the footprint
