Hey guys, today was my install and I have mixed results. I had it installed at Caton Radio per the suggestion of another member. Prior to the scheduled time I spoke to Brian several times and he was nothing less then a pleasure to deal with. My appt. was at 10am today and I was told the install would take 3 hours. I planned my day around that figuring it should be done by 1 to 1:30pm. I specifically asked that the person who put in previous Blinder units worked on my car, I was reassured that would be the case. Next Brian and I went out to my car and went over exactly where I wanted the transceivers, LED and switch located. I waited there for half an hour or so before my friend came to get me and the car was still not in the install bay. On my way out I talked to a fellow installer (not the one who was going to be working on my car) and told him the same instructions as Brian. I finally get a call at 4:30pm that my car is ready (so much for only taking 3 hrs). As I am pulling up to the store my blood pressure goes sky high. Not only did this take double the amount of time I was told but they installed it wrong!!! All 3 transceivers were mounted on the front bumper (at least they were evenly spaced). After going inside I then find out the installer had NEVER put one of these in before. To give credit where credit is due, the manager didn't charge me and told me to come in again so they can put one of transceivers in the back. I get my keys and am completely frustrated. I was specific with respect to my needs and am quite disappointed. To make matters worse, the guy put the speaker underneath my XM unit in my cigarette tray. Now the XM unit isn't flush like it used to be. Ok rant over....
1. Is the location of the front transceivers good? Could they be put in behind the grill for a better stealth/aesthetic look?
2. When I turn on the car the LED goes red, the annoying sound goes off for a few seconds and then the LED goes green. Maybe 3-5 mins later the start up test happens but never reoccurs. Is this normal? Are there any easy ways to see if the units are working correctly?
3. Is there any way to lower the volume of the warning alert? Its soo damn loud.
1. Front bumper
2. LED light location
