a lot of it seems to be lost in translation, where words are not translated well, or at all. other steps seem to miss instructions, so it seems to be not so fluent.

 

It looks like you need to be excellent at wiring and soldering to do it yourself though?

Jeebowhite, it would be better not to buy the same cruise control buttons on the other hand, or the steering wheel

Sorry Jarek I am not quite sure I follow (been up all night, so to be fair, I question if black is black, or white!)

How about cruise control buttons on your radio stalk?

 

Makes it alot more easier that having to take of your steering wheel etc.

 

I am now talking to a chinese seller about getting one of these devices and trying it. If all goes well i may be able to rangle some forum discounts :D

I would genuinely be tempted, but unless I mis interpreted half of the instructions, it seems you need to be very good at wiring / soldering at a minimum...

Look at the stalk, it seems to be a plug in, wire up the two wires, activate via IDS or that elm trick and dusted...Your cruising down the A1 (m) at 70mph

 

EDIT: but like i say i will take the punt, get the first device and activate using my IDS and test

 

EDIT 2: I have attached a circuit diagram of basically Rus is talking about...You will need to understand electronic to even know...But basically the squares are resistors, the things next to labels are buttons and the lines are wires.

And theres my limitation - I cant read electrics :D

 

That kit doesnt come with any resistors does it? so you would need to wire them in manually?
