Re: Bluetooth Connectivity

Check this. It's not perfect but better than using 3,5mm jack all the time...

Cheap short antenna replacement.

Just sharing my find:
$1.61 on AliExpress with world-wide S&H, M5 and M6 adapters, looks much better than the original long one. I would say that signal strength is OK, since I still can enjoy Radio Helax from Czech republic while living in Poland.

Re: W16W reverse lights LEDs

My biggest problem right now are side mirrors that are dim cause of the photochromic fluid (or whatever that is inside).
Right now here in Poland we have lot's of snow on our driveways, so the effect is different than in the middle of summer night.

How to enter hidden menu in Business CD radio

Hi! With ignition off, press and hold M button on the radio, turn the ignition on and wait couple seconds. In hidden menu you can check serial number of the device, adjust GALA (increased volume with speed), check LCD screens, change radio region, enable auto frequency and view some diagnostic data....
