Upgraded the nav/head unit. The 200s nav was so bad that I never really used it. I just used my phone for nav. I was going to add a ram mount for an iPad but I decided to go this route. The unit is essentially a 16” android tablet. Lots of settings to figure out but just getting Google maps on a 16” screen is a major upgrade. Onx and Gaia will be awesome.

This part was scary. I hate wires.

Wanted to share this thread. I just ripped the speakers out and put them in several of my toys, so will test how they work.

Interesting. Removing the speaker solves the primary problem of a potential thief being able to ping the airtag and easily find it. They’ll still be alerted that one exists, but maybe that’s also a deterrent.

The other option I’m considering is a used cellular Apple Watch. Can find them on eBay for $100-$150, and you can add them to most cell plans for $10/mo. Costs more than an AirTag, but won’t alert a thief and you don’t have to mess with tearing out speakers.

may have found the reason the AC in the 45 wouldn't hold a charge. Changed 2 o-rings last night, pulled a vacuum, let it sit overnight with the gauges. Still had vacuum this morning. Going to toss a new dryer on for safety sake. (old dryer doesn't have a window)
This is the primary reason you add UV dye to the system, so you can find where it is leaking.. One other issue i had was the High side Schrader valve was leaking.
FYI. standard tire core removal tools will NOT fit deep enough into an R134 fitting to unscrew the valve. I was able to use my new Mastercool core removal tool with great success.
