VLine VL2 is a perfect tool to use during the long road trips. It can provide you with connectivity and entertainment while traveling. Below are some of our recommendations to follow while on the road trip:
The install is for advance installers. It requires some technical ability, and two-three hours of your time. Watch the video to learn how Ken was able to position VLine main module in the armrest compartment for easier accessibility. See how to route GPS antenna and video cables.

Some important installation tips:
Leave VLine module or its USB ports somewhere accessible, such as in the glove box or armrest compartment. This will help to update or service the unit if needed.
Secure VLine module with velcro or using supplied brackets to prevent movement while the vehicle is in motion.
Carefully route VLine's interface and video cables. Make sure there are no sharp bends of the cables.
Mount GPS antenna on the top of the dashboard. We recommend using bottom right corner. Make sure that nothing is blocking the GPS signal from the antenna.
If using CarPlay or Android Auto, make sure to use high quality USB cables that are no longer than 4FT. For CarPlay it is best to use original Apple Lightning cable. That will allow for better performance and integration of your smartphone into your vehicle.
