    Hmm so as it turns out I have no idea what a regulator egg is. Anyone mind filling me in?

    I haven't bought a screen yet, as I'm trying to get the computer aspect going first and am selling my first setup and going with a complete custom box.

    I believe it is the egg shapped unit in the picture in the top right that is connected to the cig lighter.

    The circuit I need to power is to control open/tilt functions for my screen housing.
    That XM unit does not require regulated power. Wire it to an ignition-controlled power line, and you're good to go, my friend.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Ok thanks guys! I will wire the XM to a power line and possibly look for a egg for the circuit board.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a newb guide to wiring? I've never done anything like this before and just wondering what sort of connectors/wires etc im going to need to purchase before getting in there.
