Has anybody installed a Pac SWI-X in a 2005 yet? If so, where did you mount the IR cable, and are you happy with the results?

why would you want one? are you swapping out your head unit? most people would mount it up in the map light but myself personally, i would probably throw it in the armrest because 12V power is right there.

I installed a new head unit. I would like to install a pac eventually. My first thought was to mount the IR cable in the arm rest, but I'm afraid my wrist/hand will block the signal when I have my hand on the shifter (most of the time). The map light would be a ideal location, but I'm not sure how to route the cable up there without major disassembly of my interior. Any advice?

I squeezed mine above the radio in between the mount and the head unit. It's barely visible, and the remote eye still has line of sight.

I finally got around to installing my PAC. I installed everything in the arm rest.



I'm pretty happy with the install. Taking the center console apart was easier than it looked. I had the whole thing done in an hour.
