  2. Dension Ice Link install

    B5 Garage
    I installed an Ice Link in my 2002 Passat this afternoon. I wanted to have a hidden installation, but have my Ipod fully accessable. Before you start - disconnect the negative lead from your battery. I decided to install in the center console, as it would not hold more than a mini-mag...

  4. I.C.E - HU Recommendations

    The GAMMA HU has got to go. I'm annoyed like hell that it has no lighting of buttons or display unless my lights are switched on. That's just garbage tbh. Need something with it's own lighting. Also, i'd love it to have Ipod Connectivety and conrtol over the crappy tape adaptor i'm using now...

    Mobile Electronics
    Yea, like the title says...I don't wanna sound like a noobie or anything, but I keep seeing ICE mentioned and have no idea what it stands for. Search turns up nothing since it's too common. Anyone? :confused:

    Mobile Electronics
    I'll be putting up some pictures later this week of my work. But I have a question. I have a Blitzsafe that plugs into the back of my Monsoon head unit that gives me one RCA input. When I ordered this adapter I had only planned on putting satellite radio through it, but now, I have a DVD...

    Mobile Electronics
    I am in the process of researching which iPod solution to use in my '02 Passat. I have a double din monsoon HU, and would like to connect directly to it. I have seen lots of posts for the ice Link, but none for the neo iON. Has anyone tried this? Please post your impressions. Thanks

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I gotta tell you, I love this Forum. Not Too Shabby gave me the idea for the Ice Link and jikozi told me about Proclip. After a several PM's to jikozi I figured out what I needed. Two of the daughters live on their iPods so it was a great gift for them. I installed one today and will do the...

  16. my ICE upgrade...

    Mobile Electronics
    Decided to upgrade my HU this weekend. I was debating between the Pioneer AVIC-N1 and the Alpine IVA-D900. As feature packed as the Pioneer was, I wasn't big on the touchscreen, the lack of the sound processor with the Pioneer was a tad disappointing, and my car already had the alpine...

  19. Tires - All Season, Snow or Winter (ice)?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    The debate in our house is whether winter tires would significantly improve winter handling. This is the 2nd winter with Michelin X All Season radials and the handling is satisfactory. However my younger son is of the opinion that winter (ice) tires would perform better. His analogy is...

    My handbook says at temeratures of 4DegC (39F) there is an audible warning and the dash temperature display flashes with an ice symbol. Then the ice symbol should stay on. My car gives the audible warning and flashes the temp display with the ice symbol but then the ice symbol goes out. If you...
