Mp3tag is also a good piece of software for "fixing" tag data.

#540918 Second Battery, Split Charged, Isolated Circuit - Canbus

Posted by Micro on 16 November 2015 - 08:33 PM

Kussmaul auto ejects (but there are probably a few manufacturers). I'm not sure if you can use them with a DC charger or if you'll need to installed an AC charger in your car.

I don't foresee any issue with split charging a battery, as long as the charging system doesn't output too high a voltage (along with ensuring you have the correct relays to connect and cut off the secondary battery when charging, and to not drain the vehicle battery).

#540495 Can Someone Help To Construct This Thing? (Car Stereo/power Related)

Posted by Micro on 15 November 2015 - 01:03 AM

??? sorry, don't understand now...I wrote that the video recommends 16V capacitor...  :unsure:

In fact id recommend a 50v+ capacitor due to voltage spikes present on any car circuits. 105°C rating.

The capacitor may not actually be big enough to keep the radio running depending on how the car is actually wired. You may find that taking an ignition feed from a fuse tap (same as if you were wiring a dash cam in) may be all that's required if the car is cutting off the ignition wire to the radio (my cameras and phone do not lose power when cranking, wired to another fuse).

Thought the sticker might be a bit tacky and would fall off easily. Cleaned my key with some IPA, stuck it on and actually quite impressed. It's more of a tacky adhesive, and a very flexible sticker. Quite a nice effect!

great stuff, still get it at the forum price?


Fitment is 2 minutes or less, if you know how to remove the nozzles! Very pleased with the results.

I don't know how :unsure:

Go into the menu, should be on the first page. Or use the button.

Turn your ESP off if you do, I'm sure it won't like the back wheels being locked

I reckon a few fast runs around an old airfield for bravery would do wonders before they get let loose on the open road ;)

An observation shift with a traffic officer... ;-)

I'd like to see learners taught proper clutch control before being released into the wild and invariably stalling in front of me every flamin' time they meet a junction (and being confident with meeting posted speed limits on a closed track as well).

A skid pan is probably a good idea too - I had great fun and a fantastic learning experience on my skid day.

#533912 Drinks Can Holder Focus Mk2.5

Posted by Micro on 23 October 2015 - 05:58 PM

Could you hook one of those cup holders over the passenger side of the center console?

Don't see an issue with sipping on a drink (not boiling hot) - still have one hand on the wheel and I'd hope people would be sensible enough to only do it on a straight and not negotiating parked cars and bends...

Just ordered mine and quickly had Kevin adjust the price. 3 weeks from now!

#530589 Help Me Please Anyone

Aye, It's a nasty smell that persists for ages.
Happy to say that one clutch I burnt out was on an 6 month old Astra patrol car.
(Tbh, I actually quite enjoyed doing it).

I'm sure you don't mean that :-)

The clutches on the work vans smell like rotten fish heated up if you ride it or have to start on too steep of a hill. Seems to last a good few hours and can be smelt from a long way away too!

#526769 Mk 2 Coming Home Lights?

Posted by Micro on 26 September 2015 - 08:47 PM

Aye, well, my theory for it producing 24v was two separate feeds of 12 going to the lights, you know, if I was to splice into the locking wiring, means 12 from it going to the lights and 12 going from the light switch itself

There would still only be 12v present :)

#523457 My New Mobius Dashcam

Posted by Micro on 16 September 2015 - 11:44 AM

Hello, folks.
I could be imagining this.... Are there new, different lenses for the Mobius out there at all? I know there is the A and C lenses, but was wondering is there are any that you can install elsewhere from the camera body?
I think I saw something like that on the these forums, but can't find anything on it!
The time for a rear facing camera has presented it's self several times in a short space of times... <_<

See Techmoan on YouTube - he found an extension kit for the Möbius to make a more hidden cam.

I think the "modification" is cutting a small dash support out iirc... Might be completely wrong though!
