Since I'm not riding...

I got deeper into my other hobby... "Tinkering" with electronics. Since I can't work on a bike and my car is pretty lame ('98 Acura 3.2TL) I needed to slake my tinker thirst with a good project... So here it is, 80's ghettoblaster made a little more new school. Clarion 2-way speakers, 12v led strips on separate rocker switch, aux input in the tape deck, runs on 12v li-ion rechargeable battery, and 12v motorcycle amp as the "brain" complete with remote. Wired the IR for the remote to the front where the phones jack hole was (I said jack hole!). Can play via mp3 player, sd card, or USB stick. USB is best as that allows full use of the remote. Unfortunately had to gut the OG stereo parts out but am working on a second that should be dual purpose. Yes I will build you one if you want... But it's a pain in the ASS to find the OG boomboxes at a good price.

Can u program a simple avrcp remote that is connected to the clutch handle of my niner? I've tried a Bluetooth stack app and a remote from a Wii, but it doesn't jive with my HTC EVO dammit.

Just curious as that's some good DIY building there.

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

Unfortunately either get an iPhone/iPod Monster iEZClick Remote Control for iPod (Black): Electronics
or gotta go my same set up. That's one thing that is SHITTY about Android... They don't have accessories because they're all different HARDWARE. They don't jive for shit except for on firmware... that's if we get a good update. Good EVO mount and your current is best so far. I've got an Atrix that I LOVE but shit for good apps and hardware compatibility (can't even get good covers!)
