  1. Thanks. To be honest I stumbled upon this 3rd party app by accident. If I come across anything interesting I'll post it.
  2. With regard to comet cleanser, If it's that good on glass, why isn't that mentioned in the product literature?
  3. I installed my new tires yesterday. The factory Dunlop CrossContact LX Sport were replaced with Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus II tires. Immediate impressions are that they are noticeably quieter on older road surfaces and expansion joints. Turn-in seems to be more immediate but to early to say until I scrub them in some more. This car doesn't see winter weather but the wheel hubs were seriously rusted. To avoid issues down the road I cleaned off the rust with a Dremel tool and wire wheel attachment. That was followed up with a light coating of anti-seize compound to the wheel mounting face and the exposed axle threads (not on the wheel studs).
  4. Every time I park the vehicle...........unless I forget to. I was taught long ago to do this to take the stress off of the parking pawl when the vehicle is parked on an incline. And by doing so you also prevent the cables from seizing from lack of use. I shift my Mustang with manual transmission into neutral and apply the parking brake every time I park it........without fail.
  5. As a longtime user of the Torque Pro app I stumbled across this companion app for Torque Pro that works in conjunction with Android Auto. It lets you project up to 6 gauges in a variety of colors and configurations to your navigation screen. DPI is also adjustable. I settled on Coolant, Boost and IA2 in white to match the gauges in the cluster. The guy that invented the AAWireless dongle is also the creator of this nifty app. OBD2AA
  6. Hopefully you will have better luck with your new tires.

    Good advice that I have followed for a long time. It's had a positive effect on my investment portfolio also.

    Could be a faulty coil but I wouldn't rule out a faulty injector either.
  9. I ordered up a set of Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus II - 245/50R20 tires on Tuesday to replace the Continental CrossContact LX Sport that came with the car. Someone less discriminating (rational) will be getting a deal on the Conti's at 3,700 km of use. No knock on Continental tires in general as I have a set of TrueContact Tour on my Malibu and they are a very good tire. The CrossContact LX Sport however are shite! Rough ride and noisy. Handling isn't great either.
  10. I don't know if that was in response to me or not but I already mentioned I'm running AAWireless with great results. I was commenting to Sage that the link he provided was to a Car play dongle, not an AA dongle. Or I could just be totally off base. 😁
  11. Maybe I missed it but I'm not seeing any mention of Android Auto on their website.
  12. Looks amazing. You're a true hand filer!
  13. I've been running AA wireless for about 4 months now with Sync 3 thanks to this device: AAWireless I ordered my perk in February and received it in May. He has been struggling to get orders out due to the chip shortages but he's a stand up dude and will refund you immediately if you don't have the patience to wait. I highly recommend it as it works flawlessly.

    3.5mm audio jack input to USB

    It's been a while since I've dealt with iTunes so I cant give you the specifics on how to get your files from there to your PC but it's doable as I was able to do it. The first step is to consolidate your music files on your PC. I have mine organized with sub folders of artists/albums/artwork all in a main folder. You then associate the main folder with Media Monkey. The software will take some time to become familiar with but it's worth the effort as it will make life easier in the long run. The thing to do is to create playlists of your favourites. Then you can transfer the playlists directly to your thumb drive. Once plugged in Sync will then index everything for you and you will then have all of your music available to you with a few gestures on the screen or better yet by voice command. Once I went Android I re-ripped all of my CD's to FLAC format and dumped the apple music data. A lot of audiophiles have converted their LP collections to digital and made them available online in FLAC format. I included a couple of images of the PC and phone app interfaces. The phone app is Android Auto compatible (Carplay too I would imagine). I use the phone to access my music library and stream music to the home and garage systems.

    I think there might be USB compatibility issues with older apple devices. Typically the device should have no issues with passing data via the data cable but we're talking apple here.
