That’s awesome, great use of your FLIR. Thanks for sharing that thread! I definitely plan to explore further into the temperatures of different engine bay components.

A little while back I got a Kenwood DNR876S head unit. Pretty sweet little touchscreen setup with integral Garmin GPS and CarPlay / Android Auto, plus the usual mix of radio, usb, aux input, etc. No CD/DVD player though. 


Pictured is wireless CarPlay with navigation and streaming audio (no USB connection needed).  Plus it pairs up automatically when I get in the car. Definitely nice to get some more capable and modern ICE for daily driver duties then the single-DIN that came in the car.

nice - only powering 4 speakers though? 

Kinda. The stock Dolby system isn’t compatible. It hasn’t worked since I got the car, so I wasn’t too worried about that. I’ve debated trying to make the Dolby system work again but I don’t even know if the speakers are functioning so it’d be a total rebuild.

The 4 channels - front left, front right, rear left, rear right- are actually 2 speakers per channel so technically the head unit drives 8 speakers. That’s the same as any other non-Dolby setup in these cars.

Coming to EuroMeet in Ithaca this Month? Be great to see you & the wagon!

Wish I could make it, would be awesome to see you and catch up. Unfortunately I had already made plans before I knew the show was that day.
