Harness is plug and play. Not sure what you're asking. The connectors can only go in specific ports on the head unit. The harness goes from the unit from the front to the trunk via the extension harness then connects to where the connects to where the old nav unit connected

When I put my Avin Avant2 in I had to purchase an additional harness that ran to the trunk since that's where all of the "brains" were with the factory NAV setup. In my current setup the Avin connects to that harness and that harness only from what I recall. I don't believe any of the connectors behind the dash are used but I'd have to confirm.

Unit should be here tomorrow, crazy fast shipping. I'll report back on what I find.

just a headsup, the glare on this bad boy can be bad sometimes. if the sun is setting behind you and its coming through the back window, oh man, be prepared to be blinded by the light. my windows are tinted too. ill probably look for an anti-glare screen but not sure if any really work that well. other than that, unit works well. upgraded the software from the link they sent me with a microSD card. and its pretty simple.

Glare you can get anti glare screens for. It's a ***** to get in the console and flush because there isn't much room back there. So you have to be careful of placement of cables. Once you finally get it right. It works great if you have a wifi hotspot. It's super fast and no lag.

Pretty happy with mine. Once I got the cables sorted the fit was flush. As many have stated the screen glare is pretty bad. I haven't had a chance to try a anti glare decal.

As for functionality I had no problems setting up wifi, Bluetooth etc. I was primarily interested in the Torque app and on track timing, both of those work great.

For an added bonus, the audio for radio is much better and louder than the stock system.

Need anti-glare? When I got my 'vert with factory NAV a few years ago, the screen was scratched up enough to be annoying. Used a cleaner and removed the top coat, which leaves the screen super glossy and reflects the sun right into your eyes like a mirror...not to mention being impossible to see during the day with the top down.

Bang for the buck... buy this:


and then cut to fit. I used a cutting mat, a sharp x-acto knife and a metal straight edge.

Sorry to say the edges aren't always perfectly flush, but it's about 1mm of annoyance sometimes when I look at it vs. impossible to use without. The anti-glare is VERY good, with very good light transmission through it all the time too.

Thanks, I was just about to ask for someone to post a link to an anti glare they recommend.

Looks like I may go ahead and try this unit out in the near future
