Anyone have any tips on hardwiring a Garmin GPS and Escort Radar Detector into a 2012 Hyundai Sonata SE Turbo? This is my wife's car, and she said she's tired of looking at all the wires. Don't blame her.

Thanks in advance!

GK, don't know where you're located but I just had my Garmin hardwired into my Sonata. I also have the Escort 9500ci hardwired on my GCoupe. Here's pics of the Sonata. If you're in my area let me know and I'll tell you where you can take the car! :D

Nice set up bro. What color is your LED footwell?
Thanks Number and Funny you ask; They are amber to blend/match with the tan/brown and woodgrain interior. I'm laughing because I had the same thing done to my Genesis Coupe which is Mirabeau blue, so of course I wanted the blue LED's for that one.

When they first did the Sonata, they put blue in it too; I told them *** NO! LOL. I told them I wanted amber, so they had to order it, but the guy doing the ordering didn't know what color amber was, so when they called and said it was ready and I went to go see it, they had put RED LED's in! LOL! I told him, "No, AMBER!" And he said, "That is amber!" I had to explain to him (he's from the middle east), no, amber is a gold-ish-yellow-ish color. So they got it right the third time. :D

I keep meaning to post a series of pics in the "Pics of Your Sonata" thread but havent gotten around to it...

Center Console Top Compartment Operation with recessed GPS Unit

Sure!

This first picture is of the compartment opened showing the room I still have left. The USB plug is there in the back.


This picture shows the compartment opened with the USB plug pulled out. This is used to plug the unit into the computer for upgrades and downloads.

Lmao mad hard right at McDonalds. I just read your Post about the blue, then red, and then finally amber. Lmao. Well I'm glad you finally got the color. Mine has a blueish, purplish hue during the daytime. I hate it, I wanted pure white. I recently received my pure white LED in the mail, I might install them this weekend.
