First of all why don't these crap companies include complete wiring diagrams with these stereo units. I have a user manual with probably 20 + pages on using a new stereo that they obviously think will jump into the din opening and wire itself! Damndest thing I have ever seen! Enough venting about cheap ass companies, where does the purple/white wire from the stereo labeled reverse connect? Is the light green brake labled wire part of using the backup camera circuit? i assume you power the camera from backup lights but where do you connect, at the transmission or pig tail off the light socket? does the purple/white connect to this hot feed to signal the head unit? These are critical points that should be provided by Boss Audio, not wasting my time with stupid tickets and forums! Thanks for any pointers!
Agreed with above post. I can get the backup camera to work, but not automatically. I suspect that this has to do with the violet/white wire [not clearly directed in the manual]. Please let us know where to hook up this wire, and if this will allow the unit to display the backup camera automatically when the car is placed in reverse.
Also, my unit does not remember my date and time settings when the vehicle is turned off. Is this a function of the Yellow wire not being hot all the time?
I totally agree that the instructions for wiring a stereo is essentially useless! For example, what the heck is a "P. Cont"??? How about spelling out a few things? And where is the orange wire from my truck for illumination supposed to hook up to the BOSS unit? Surely the unit is suppose to dim at night like all other stereos, but if it doesn't hook up to my vehicle's illumination wire how does it do that? If you'd provide just a little bit of information maybe I could figure these things out, but you've left us completely on our own.
