    So I bought a double din unit off of eBay...

    So I bought a double din unit off of eBay...-image.jpgSo I bought a double din unit off of eBay...-image.jpg

    And it arrived very very quickly which I am of course pleased with. The unit is awesome have to buy a install kit though :-/

    Well the reason I am making this thread is because behind the unit there are 3 compartments / ports? One for TV, one for usb and one for iPod. Mind you this unit is not a pioneer or alpine no sadly I could not afford this yet so I bought a unit from china which is where everything is made from anyways right? Took a chance non the less.

    The ports for some reason are covered from the inside of the back plate of the unit and if you place your finger where the port is supposed to be it's like a black piece of sticky paper... I'm really not sure if it's that the unit is not supposed to feature these parts and they got covered to avoid blank areas or if I'm supposed to unscrew the whole back end of the unit and take off this paper...... I know super confusing :-/ btw the 3 ports are on the right on this second photo.

    Has anyone ever encountered this?? Please any feedback would be awesome.

    It would seem at least I think it's just some screws but I'm not familiar with stereo units at all so just a lil worried I'd be messing something up if I try to remove the back but that could just be my cautious side lol I prob should just try that...

    I would give it a shot. Was this unit listed with those features?

    The unit says it has the sd and usb feature but that'd on the front of the unit, I'm at work so gotta wait till later to try doing that. I am just curious why the opening would be there if there are no ports and if there are ports why are they covered.... Very curious

    Well no way it can be worse than the unit that came with my car ugh... Such a piece of... Yea. The interface of the unit from the original eBay listing looks awesome and has this 3d interface almost like a rotating cube design going through menus I think. I am dying to turn it on but I guess I gotta wait till I install it or someone does.

    And yep graveyard :P

    Re: So I bought a double din unit off of eBay...

    that thing come with the wiring harness i hope? ha headunits are cakewalk to install as long as you have the wire harness for your car and and a dash install kit. Once you get the hang of it its a 15 minute job. Ive been on 3rd shift for 2 years now im starting to get sick of it actually

    You could just test it without installing it.take the red and yellow,touch both of them to positive,and the black to ground,that way you could make sure it works too.
    What I was referring to is,What the guy said above me.they probably make a couple different units that share the same backplate.

    So I got on youtube and I was looking at ways to power on the Double Din and people are using Computer PSU's or some crazy looking generator for charging your car....... I don't build computers and I live in Miami so I don't have any portable generator lol is there a more simple way to power on my unit? I obviously cant find anything outside of the realm of having a computer power supply or the generator....... any ideas?
