      Do you REALLY think your channel deserves more subscribers/viewers than f'ing TOP GEAR? I know it's gone downhill since the cool hosts left, but it's still leagues ahead of this channel. This video alone is proof that you simply do not know what you are talking about.

      When I have Honda Accord parked next to my Tacoma. Both vehicles rush me on the amount of time I have to go open the doors after I unlock them with the remote before they lock themselves up again. Vice versa. Then I have to go back inside the house for the key to unlock them because I didnt know they would lock themselves up again. -.-

      Scotty , you have no idea what you're talking abou about, the reason why the car wouldn't start is not because of RF, it's because the car has a voltage sensor control module that keeps the car in check and stops the run mode when the car senses an abnormally low voltage or over current draw. RF will not effect this vehicle. "Electronics Engineer for over 50 years"

                          What about the usb plugs for older vehicles. I bought one with 2 usb and one car charger port and wired it up to my battery directly with a little inline fuse,. works fine. Just curious though

                                                            Scotty, my computer's battery backup died. As you probably know it's cheaper to buy an new one rather than replace the old battery. But, I got to thinking, this thing is an inverter. So, I kept my old one and was wondering; Can you remove the old battery and hook it up to your car's battery? The battery is toast, but the inverter should still work, right?

Anyway I just wanted to know if I have the all clear to use the PowerPoints in the car.

My wife's car has it on, I got the battery checked and replaced the alternator but after 2 days it came back on
