- Installed waterproof switches on left front panel.
- "Tested" water resistance the next day in a good Maryland downpour.
- Made harness to hook the 3 pin Molex connectors to one Mini-Fit Jr. 10 pin connector to make it easier to disconnect the player.
- Installed foam in cargo area to secure player and power adaptor.
- Take new pictures to post since my computer was stolen before I could upload previous pictures... (sigh.)
The NexII has been superseded by the
NexIIe. The main upgrade is that it will draw power from the USB port while downloading songs in order to save the batteries. It also will run from external power. A car power adapter is available directly from Frontier Labs.
These ideas will pretty much apply to any MP3 player that has buttons which go to a common ground. If some company gets tricky with their setup, then you would have to run two wires for each button.
- Frontier Labs Maker of the Nex II.
- Digi-Key Electronics supplier. They tack on a $5 charge for orders under $25 but their prices tend to be cheaper.
- Mouser Electronics Supplier. Slightly wider range of products than Digi-Key and no minimum order but slightly more expensive.
- Radio Shack The good old standby. They may have it in stock locally but you pay for it.
- Yahoo Groups Nex II page Great for help. They cover pretty much all of the FL MP3 players.
- NEX II Community A website with some good articles and links to a few other Nex II websites.
