I really liked the way the Trailguide
setup looks and performs in the TJ.
However I could never bring myself to spend 800 dollars for a simple GPS and mount.
So I went to EBay and bought a Garmin Quest for $190. Factory refurbished with a full one year warranty. The Trailguide comes with the QuestII but the only difference between them is that the QuestII has a little more memory then the regular Quest. The Quest come with 115 meg of onboard memory and can hold more maps then you drive in a day or 2. I can hold the state I live in (Nebraska) and all the surrounding states with memory left over. So to me the QuestII is really not worth the extra money.
Next off to the Jeep Dealer ship and ordered part number 5191114-AA. Which is the plain Trailguide mount with no GPS or wiring. $108.00
The install is actually pretty easy. All you will need in the way of tools is a Drill, 5/32 drill bit, 9/32 drill bit, Phillips screwdriver, wire and a computer motherboard connector.
This was done in a 06 Rubicon so your jeep may not have the same exact layout.
1: Remove the top cover of the dash, the one that goes over the defroster vent.
2:Remove the 2 screws holding the center cover in place and remove center cover.
3:Jeep trail Guide top View.
4:Jeep Trail Guide Bottom view.
5:Hold Center console level.
6:Set Trail Guide on console.
7:Mark the holes with the 5/32 Drill bit.
8: Drill the 2 marked holes with the 5/32 drill bit. Also drill a hole in the center (doesnâ€™t have to be exact) with the 9/32 drill bit. This will be where your wires go through.
