They all just need to be done like my car. Headlights on all the time. Then there's a selector to allow you to turn nighttime lights on, nighttime lights off, and the auto mode, which turns nighttime lights on/off based off of a light meter on the dash. I leave it in auto mode and I'm happy. And all this coming from a… » 1/07/15 6:15pm 1/07/15 6:15pm

I think with the advent of Carplay and Android Auto, we'll be seeing less manufacturer shenanigans as time wears on, and a better system overall. As for the sending directions to your car from a computer/phone, it can be useful in certain situations. If you're looking up a place to go from your computer, being able to… » 1/07/15 1:16pm 1/07/15 1:16pm

I think they've missed out on a great opportunity to make an even longer acronym. Instead of multiple user MIMO (which itself is multiple input multiple output), they should just use MUMIMO. And while we're at it, we can add features like multiple access and multiple enhancements (which make about as much sense as the… » 1/04/15 10:28pm 1/04/15 10:28pm

That's basically what Carplay and Android Auto are. Your phone (or tablet, I suppose) does all the heavy lifting while the head unit essentially acts as the central hub for connecting everything (phone, steering wheel buttons, screen for central control, etc). And because Carplay/AA are so basic and tiny, most… » 1/04/15 8:46pm 1/04/15 8:46pm

My mom just replaced her '94 Plymouth Voyager about a month ago. My parents got it back then to haul myself and sister around (the built in car seats were a big draw). We drove that thing all over the place and almost every summer loaded it up for the family vacation across the country. Save for a couple of things, my… » 12/30/14 1:28pm 12/30/14 1:28pm

My mom just got a new Cherokee a couple of weeks ago. It's the middle model (Latitude?) and I've got to say I'm damn impressed with it. The ride is comfortable, the engine (4cyl) is rather peppy, and it's packed full of fancy new toys. Of course, she's coming from a 21 yo minivan, so it's quite the upgrade for her. » 12/22/14 10:44am 12/22/14 10:44am

I'll go ahead and be the guy who says he likes this. But for a very different reason. As a tall person, my rearview mirror blocks part of my view out of the passenger windshield area. Usually to see stuff over there I have to hunker down a bit. But if I had a camera and screen instead of a mirror, I could move the… » 12/18/14 5:20pm 12/18/14 5:20pm

As a New Mexican, I'll have to disagree with you. Breakfast burritos is where it's at. Second place would be breakfast stuffed sopaipillas. I'll give your tacos third place. And also, instead of salsa, put some red or green chile on those bad boys. It will make you much happier. Well, unless you can't handle spicy… » 12/17/14 6:13pm 12/17/14 6:13pm

Do you guys know of any apps like Themer that will support My Color Screen themes, but also supports resolutions of 2560*1440 and 2560*1600? I would love to play around with some new themes, but so far no love for high density displays other than the LG G3. » 12/12/14 8:45am 12/12/14 8:45am

At my previous employer (computer repair shop) I was able to dig through our recycle pile and salvage whatever I wanted. I built a lot of computers this way and sold most of them on craigslist. While my salary itself wasn't the greatest, the side income definitely helped out. » 12/12/14 8:02am 12/12/14 8:02am
