Hi All,
I'm seriously considering the Duo for my new Vue XR. Has anybody done an install on this type of vehicle? I know DriVer is getting ready to do one too but his is on an XE. (I think) I really don't expect to have much of a problem except that just measuring by eye I'm concerned that there may not be alot (read enough) room to mount the operating unit under the hood. Could somebody give me the dimensions of the "Operating Unit"?
I'll build a mock up and check it out before I order it. If there are pics available that would be greater still. If I go this route I promise a detailed post with pics.
Thanks.

P.S. This post should kick my Karma up a notch. Yeah.

Hey Depchief,
I've been studying Drivers post in preperation for installation tomorrow. I pretty much deceided on my own to mount the "GU" on the fuse box too but like the #8 screw idea a lot. I would like to know about the wireless transmitter mentioned. I havn't seen anything on it and I want one. Do you have a source? Thanks for the heads up.

Well just to end this thread if any one else needs to do a "Duo" on a Vue see DriVers thread on the subject. It's "DEAD ON". Item for Item. Thanks DriVer for the info.
