Hummer H2 AV Install By The Ice House

The Hummer H2 has to be one of the most imposing cars on the road today. Dave purchased his Hummer for the bad winter weather as his daily driver was no good in the snow. The car is used by the family for school trips, shopping and long drives to the south of Spain. Dave wanted a fully integrated satellite navigation unit and also wanted to keep the kids entertained on those long trips.

We decided the Kenwood DNX7240BT double din media centre was the solution. The unit features fully integrated touch screen Garmin satellite navigation which covers the whole of Europe, so it’s very handy on long trips to Spain. Dave also liked the fact that he could play the videos from his IPhone on the 7” touch screen as well as providing Bluetooth Hands free calling. To keep the IPhone handy we fitted a Brodit charging cradle in the center consul. To keep the kids entertained we fitted 7” screens into the O.E headrests with audio taken care of via a pair in headphones. The Kenwood DNX7240BT features Dual zone entertainment, this means that Dave could have the Satellite navigation on whilst listening to his IPod whilst the kids are entertained by the built in DVD player with separate audio channel.

The Hummer has a Bose amplified audio system and steering wheel controls. We were able to adapt these to be used with Kenwood system by using PAC audio interfaces which are fully programmable.

While we had the vehicle in our workshop Dave asked us if we could sort some extra finishing touches to the car. We fitted a full chrome pack, Varad wheel arch lighting system and 25” inch Giovanna alloy wheels with 315/40/VR 25 Pirelli Scorpion tires. A finishing touch we replaced the gear leaver with a chromed hand grenade
