    hindi ba kaya ng TRS to TRRS adaptor sir?


    Nagtry ako pero ayaw gumana. Technically gumagana pero ang hina ng volume at garalgal, parang grounded. Kaya ang binili kong cable ay TRRS. Yung totoong Bluetooth receiver kelangan ko pa maghanap.

    Sa akin di ko pa kinakabit, naka tint din ako, pero so far wala pang huli. Kelangan daw kasi hindi sa ting ididikit. May nakausap ako sa LTO na kapag nasita, ukitin nalang daw yung tint para yung sticker ay sa windshield madidikit.
  • guys OK ba na protection sa paint yung panoramic roof?
    pag ni peel mo ba yun later on hindi matutuklap yung pintura?

    meron akong nakita na pix sa pinagpagawaan ko, ni-peel nila yung wrap after 2 years, hindi naman natuklap yung pintura, hindi nga lang nabanggit yung actual condition ng paint

    if I have to guess, protected ka sa sun exposure and sa paint chips, pero possible na may adverse effect yung adhesive nung wrap sa paint/ coat

    1.5K daw para sa swift.. OK na ba to?


    thanks...


    Sakin bro wala difference nun tinanggal, mas nalinis nga lang roof vs other parts ng auto. pero sabi decal republic depende parin daw sa sticker eh. Sa kanila daw kasi maganda talaga quality and madali tanggalin.
  • guys ok bang gawing dashcam mga sportscam? below 1K kasi sa online eh
  • 1. Mabilis maginit yun sportscam kung gawin dashcam
    2. Wala ring syang feature na buburahin yun oldest file kapag puno na yun memory
    3. Laging nakakasasak kaya posible lumubo yun baterya nya, isipin mo gawin dashcam ang phone camera laging nakasasak sa 12V.
    4. Bibili ka ng mounting adaptors at yun cigarette 12V power supply pa.

    Last night, reports surfaced online about the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority's (MMDA) plans to regulate car tints in a bid to curb criminal activity inside vehicles. Initial details were scarce and no guidelines or specifics were mentioned, so we reached out to the agency to shed more light on the matter.

    According to MMDA spokesperson Celine Piolago, nothing is set in stone regarding the plan. She says that before any action is taken, it must undergo review by the Metro Manila Council (MMC). "Everything the MMDA will implement involves consulting the mayors first," she told us over the phone.

    The official added that no guidelines are in place as of now, but she did provide details as to what the agency hopes to achieve with the regulation. "We see a lot of motorists texting while driving on CCTVs," she said. "You'll see that the reason why some vehicles are slow is because the driver is texting. It's one of the contributing factors as to why traffic is slow."

    "The MMDA is not banning tints. We know it's hot outside. But very dark tints have to be regulated because you really can't see if someone is texting inside the vehicle," she added. "Tints for protecting against UV rays are okay, but tints that are black? This is what the MMDA is studying."

  • kumuha ako renewal ng lisensya kahapon.. took me 45mins.

    dun ako napawatdapak sa Medical.. 300 pesos...
    chineck lang mata kung nababasa yung chart
    kinuha height at timbang
    tinanong kung bingi
    tinanong kung nagda drugs.. obvious naman ang dapat isagot lol
    tinignan kung color blind

    ayun... pasado lahat... ito na yata ang pinaka walang sense na ginastos kong 300 pesos sa buhay ko hehe..

    yung nag check pa halatang hindi doctor.. at mukha ding hindi nurse.

    --
    yung lisensya resibo pa din... tawag daw after 3 months...


    buti na lang may pakunswelo si tatay digong...

  • sino pala nagkabit or naka bili na ng gps tracker?
    yung pede makuha location using iphone or computer?

    balak ko bumili at ikabit sa kotse... thanks...
  • ^Merong mga choices, naisip ko na rin kasi yan dati. The reason hindi sya nagc-click sa consumers is because need mo mag load regularly sa sim ng gps unit. Merong mga package sa provider ng tracking unit mas convenient pero mas mahal. Balitaan mo kami sir kung anong solution ang makuha mo.
  • yun nga e... sana yung standalone lang kahit walang sim hehe..
    yung mga relo ba na pang bata may sim?

    napanuod ko kasi yung AD ng Hyundai... yung kay kevin Hart.. astig e hehe
  • yun nga e... sana yung standalone lang kahit walang sim hehe..


    if walang sim the tracker has no way of informing you where they are, asa ka nalang sa manual download of data once the car goes back to base
  • afaik there are GPS tracker android apps. Buy a cheap android phone and wire it to the 12v power supply and maybe hack the gps antenna by adding an external antenna.
  • guys anong magandang salamin sa mata para pangontra sa araw? sa amazon or online bibili ayaw ko ng parang may grado. never akong nag shades mapa drive or porma but tindi kasi ng araw dito halos kahit traffic light hindi ko na Makita kahit naka sun visor ako. natanong ko lang baka may shades kayong subok na or pang drive talaga. hindi ko kailangan maging pogi sa loob ng kotse dahil naka shades. pang laban lang sa araw na shades kailangan ko na komportable.....

  • From what I've read on LED bulb headlight replacement, here are the ideal specs

    1. cooling. There seem to be 3 generations

    1.1. active cooling (meron fan)
    1.2. Passive cooling, using braided copper/aluminum strips
    1.3. passive cooling using rigid aluminum/copper heatsinks

    1.3 is better, daw. And you can always add your own fan. A fan is a potential point of failure, although I'm not sure if its proven that the fan fails more often than other parts. But with 1.3 if the fan fails, it was rated to survive with passive cooling anyway. Anyway lower heat is usually a hallmark of more advanced more efficient LED's

    2. driver. Either integrated or external. Not sure if this has a large effect but integrated drivers are cleaner and you dont have to find a place to mount the driver

    to be continued
  • 3. position of the LED. Must be as close as possible to the position of the filament since the headlight reflector was designed around the filament




    in the above image the LED emitter's top and bottom edge closely match the cfilament of the old bulb, but not the width.




    in the above image, they also matched the width of the filament by using 4 smaller LED emitters in a line

  • salamin? yung Gunnar gamit ko.. effective naman kahit gabi panlaban sa ilaw ng mga hinayupak na high beamer
  • I prefer LED with copper braid cooling over LED with rigid heatsink.

    1. The copper braid is flexible. It can fit tight spaces, specially headlights with dust covers at the back.
    2. It can cover a larger surface area for efficient cooling. You can stretch, expand the copper braid to fill up all available space.

    I don't find the need to add a fan with these copper braid cooling. Like has been said, a fan is point of failure plus almost all are noisy. You can hear the fan noise when you are not listening to music.

    I prefer LED with external ballast. The ballasts of the latest models are very small so no problem in mounting. External ballast are easier to troubleshoot and can be replaced separately.

    LED with internal ballast, if bulb or ballast stops working, you replace the whole unit altogether.
