  1. Running Z1 on Car Battery for How Long?

    [quote name="ducatiboy"]ebay is only as safe as the specific person you order from. It's hit or miss. I have had excellent luck on ebay over the years (my account dates back to 1999).[/quote] Sounds good, I'll go with ebay. I apologize for bugging you, but will it be possible for you to take a few photos of the steering wheel control installed? Im just curious how a wired remote holds up on the steering wheel. Have a good night and a pleasant day tomorrow Sir Ducatiboy. Bye bye.
  2. Running Z1 on Car Battery for How Long?

    Thank you for the info, I will order one.... And do you really think I would run stock gauge wires? :) common dude. Let me order the remote. eBay should be safe, right?
  3. Running Z1 on Car Battery for How Long?

    I never run the battery hard without the engine running, I have special pulleys and a bigger alternator to provide the juice...and yeah, you are right, I would of never maxed out...that will be unbearable and unreasonable....the numbers I gave was for figurative speaking, as yes, it is possible.... so you can stop now :) But I do have a nice system....plus my whole car is dynamatted so its sounds sweet. Since you are the genius of Navis, quick questions, I really need the ATT or Mute button...reason is not for me, but for the cops....looking for a play/pause on the screen is not fast enough....so its holding the AV button...installing that hardwired steering wheel remote, do i have to take my airbag out to properly install it? Thanks for your input! :)
  4. Running Z1 on Car Battery for How Long?

    I have a custom 8 speakers system with 2 12" eclipse subwoofers...ranging about 400RMS. And again I suggest race & show proven Optima Yellow Top...these babies are amazing. [quote name="ducatiboy"]The Z1 draws about 1.5 amps when it's running, maybe up in the 2 amp range-ish. [quote name="teknoking"]I have about 1600w of power consumption (speakers/sub), and the optima does its job wonderfully.[/quote] 1600w of power consumption? Your stereo draws over 100 amps? Are you sure? Or do you mean that your amps and all say x# of watts and you are just adding them up? Those are always a little "ambitious" of measurements. The Z1 all by itself is in the 30w range maxed out. Either way, I wouldn't run the Z1 off battery only for too long. I did for about 6 hours and it drained my new battery down so low it wouldn't start the truck anymore.[/quote]

    well stock batteries are good enough to hold z1 playing for solid 4-6 hours without a problem. (maybe even more, but it depends on the set-up you are running) I recommend going with yellow top Optima battery if you really need the juice. I have about 1600w of power consumption (speakers/sub), and the optima does its job wonderfully. Also the main misconception about car batteries, your car alternator is not designed to charge the battery but only to maintain it, so dont go crazy draining the battery (unless u have an optima) Overall, enjoy the z1 :)
  6. Is it possible to obtain POI list?

    Greetings, This may not make much sense, but I need a list of all the hotels/motels that are stored in Z1 (a little experiment). Does such list exist? or is it possible to download from the Z1 hdd? Thank you for your time.
  7. The Z1 and poor GPS system

    Thanks, the holding part is what i don't like... :) And adding cell mute like other suggests with a switch button is inconvenient. [quote name="whtcrxghst"]Holding down the AV button will source the unit off. Same thing as a mute button [quote name="teknoking"]my Z1 is very accurate in NYC area, every road, every turn, plus there is a big database for voice, where the streets are announced, a lot of nice options. So far Im pretty damn happy. :D PS. Except the no ATT or Mute button, and no Visual graphical equalizer effetcs, i miss those function from my previous radio......[/quote][/quote]
