    This thing is an absolute gem. I installed it in my 2006 Civic, and I fortunately have the Aux input jack so I can listen to everything that the Pre does through the car speakers, even talking on the phone as long as the volume in the car isn't too loud as feed back will occur.

    Anyway, I have the car charger with the #2,3 shorting method mod done on the charger from bestofferbuy.com, you know, the 1.2Amp charger. I had my GPS running with the text to speech turned off, the Music remix App from Homebrew running a nice set from DJ Faskil, multiple phone calls via bluetooth and also many texts, and some other simple app opening like Trapster, which I am trying to like, but the delay is making it tough.

    With all of this going on, the Touchstone still kept the charge increasing at a slow but constant rate. Actually I can't even say it was slow. It increased the battery percentage about 1% every 1-2 minutes. This test was by no means as thorough as I wide like to be performed.

    So to sum up, I like touching Touch-type-stones and also black matte finish covers with my person and my hand sensors, leading to what I call one helluva TouchStone accessory. Aww yeah kid. Pea Soup.

    Pictures of your setup? I have the same car and I can't seem to find a good place for a touchstone location.

    I only have the Pre to take the pics, so I can only show the TS location. The wires are next to be hidden completely. I bought a retractable 3.5mm cable from monoprice.com and that is the next to be installed.

    Here are the 2 pics I have:

    I have to take new pics tomorrow. Since the ones listed, I have recently bought a female cigarette lighter plug with pos and neg wires that I ran to the fuse box and chassis ground. I then plugged the 12v usb adapter and fastened it under the kick panel. This freed up my 12v adapter outlet which, as you know, we only have just one available. I use the retractable 3.5mm plug and it is a great setup.

    I will take some more pics as soon as I get a chance and show you the latest setup. The TS is still in the same place though. How is your setup coming along?

    Did you try flipping the stone 180 degree? I thought having the wedge point up might be better angle for viewing while driving.

    I'll make sure I take some pics today with my work camera, and post them up. You will see the angle is perfect. The way the TS is placed makes the Pre almost level. Also, the Palm logo on the TS is not reversed like would be the case if i reversed the TS. I believe reversing it 180 would also put too much angle.

    The TS's magnet has not let me down yet. The only time the Pre has fallen off is when I was messing around with it, like trying to insert the 3.5mm cable and pushing the phone right off the TS.

    What type of 12v adapter do you use? The one from best offer buy.com where you can easily solder pins 2 and 3? That's what I have.

    I'll take some pics at lunch time and post them up around 1pm today. You can check out the latest and probably finished install. The only thing I am still not happy with is that the USB cable is noticeable. I would have liked to run it through the vent, but that would have required drilling into the duct underneath and sealing it up. It would make for the ultimate install though, with wires virtually hidden completely.

    I haven't been able to make calls through my car stereo aux jack since the 1.3.x update. Is this still working for you?

    Yes, just choose wired headset in the icon at the bottom of the phone app during the call. I usually use bluetooth, but wired headset will have the sound go through car speakers, but too loud of a volume will have the callers voice go back through the mic and feedback will occur. Does this help?

    I will try it out. Thanks.

    I just ordered the retractable stereo cable. Nice idea. $1.68 shipped from HK. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=370307719762

    How did you route the power cable? Do you have any pics that show your power wiring. I like the idea of adding a second lighter jack behind the dash and wired to the fuse box. Since I have a similar Civic any help that you can provide is going to make my job easier.

    I am going to try my Proclips mount 1st because it will put the Pre higher up on my dash. My Proclip mount sits right above the AC vent. I will try your positioning too.

    Tried looking thru search for the 1.2 amp mod, nothing. Can you give the details about that mod. What charger and where to get it, directions on the mod itself. Thanks!
