Can you explain this better – "I actually use the SAVVY though which plugs into the OBD port?" SAVVY? Thanks.For the V1 to stop turning off and on, they offer a cheap solution called a brown out booster on their website. Or just turn off the start-stop feature.
As for hardwiring, running an add-a-fuse to the fuse panel on the driver side is so much cleaner/safer than pulling down the overhead to do tap into something up there. Add-a-fuse is 100% reversible too. It's so easy to tuck the cord up the windshield headliner and down the a-pillar between the weather strip. I actually use the SAVVY though which plugs into the OBD port. Everything cleanly connected in about 15 minutes.
