This product does exactly what it needs. IMPORTANT, if you are buying this solely for an Alpine head unit, the instructions can be very confusing for this, but you do not need to program. Simply hook up the power, ground, remote leads, and then the foot and hand break wires. Semi temperamental, I went through two of these.
I bought this for my double din Alpine head unit and it works great. Haven't had any issues. I can now watch videos whenever i want!
A must buy!
If you have a tv screen in your car or truck you need to buy this!
Used this to bypass the parking brake wire in my Pioneer 8400. Was very simple and worked perfectly.
Fried aftrr a month
Honestly, no idea what happened at first when my radio stopped turning on. Took of the tr-7 and everything was fine (no additional settings of course)
Learned that this unit will fry itself easily, so invest in a bigger unit, or use toggles. This one is a bit unstable.
Pac tr-7 its an overall great product, I used it as a parking brake bypass does the job with ease hassle free on a pioneer head unit . This unit could also be used for a number of different things n not just a bypass. Still think that for me its a little pricey but thanks to sonic
Easy to wire
I used this product on my Alpine IVA-D106 and it works great. I thought it was going to be a pain to wire but it was very easy to wire together. The only problem I had was the wire was so small my ground wire came loose from the connector and it wouldn't play movies but I just folded the wire over to double the thickness and it hasn't came loose yet.
I have used this device many times before. It workes great.
Sonic shipping was extremely fast and painless. I would buy from them again!!
PAC TR-7 Interface Module
Great interface module. Needed to control my aftermarket fog lamps, using a factory momentary contact fog lamp control switch. Unit had several program options to choose. I chose the push once for on, push again for off option. It also does many other specialized functions for many applications.
This little module works great, fairly easy to install and small enough to be able to hide anywhere in the dash.
PAC TR7 review
To start out with, shipping was faster than I expected, so I was happy from the jump. I have used the tr7 before, but the old one had to be programmed, which sometimes was a trouble. The old one I was using had to be replaced, because the switch broke off. The new design, has a switch, but is pre-programed for Alpine. The new design is a simple plug and play. Much better that the alternative, of the toggle switch method. I know this is not the right thing to do, to watch video up front. I mainly add the TR7 so I can access the A-proc. In Alpine decks. Over all, the TR7 is a really nice, simple, easy way to do exactly what it was designed for. Great Product!!
I have a pioneer double din and tried using a relay switch and that didn't work then I tried using a manual switch and didn't like having to turn in on and off every time I started my truck. so I went to sonic and asked the guy at the front desk and he recommended getting the pac tr-7 and it worked perfect. I can now play movies while driving.
I love this fine little invention I don't watch while driving but its awesome to be able to do everything you want when you want.
this bypass work pretty good easy to install nothing to it
thank you sonic electronix
A Must Have Device for an Alpine HU
Pre programmed for an Alpine HU. Just connect the wires as stated in the instructions and it will automatically bypass each time you turn on your HU. Be certain to use the "remote" wire and NOT the "remote turn on" wire from the Alpine HU when connecting the device. You can't bypass an Alpine HU by just grounding one wire like some other HU's. This device will do it all for you.
PAC worked perfect easy to install on my alpine a must have
A must for many option
This unit has many programmable options for a wide range of uses. I am using it to bypass the video lock on a Pioneer DVD. Works great, just read the instructions and take your time.
Its a must for the best set up.
Does everything it says. Much cleaner than using random switches. The results are transparent to the customer.
Works like a charm with the ALPINE IXAW404
Works great. It was basically plug and play since this is pre-programed for use with Alpine head-units.
I used the PAC TR-7 with my Alpine 505. I wired it up and it has been working perfectly (about 6 months) so far. Follow the instructions and it will for you too.
Works as a parking brake bypass for video on most head units. I bought it but didn't need it with Jensen head unit. I gave it to a buddy and it worked well
Works like a charm
Used this with a Pioneer AVH-X4600BT and it was easy cake to hook up. Wish the Pac instructions were more clear on what wire sends out what . Did some easy research online.
Easy to install. Required no programming for use with my Alpine unit.
This little device worked exactly as described. Installation was easy, and the small size made the installation clean and simple.
Very vague with instructions,
But called PAC for instructions and they guided me through.
Works like a charm with the ALPINE IXAW407
This is the second unit I purchased not because it broke but for another vehicle. Again the install was almost plug and play since this comes pre-programed for Alpine head units. Works Flawless!
Great when it works!!!!!!!
Used for brake/video bypass with my Alpine head unit, firts one lasted a couple weeks, second one a couple weeks haven't gotten around to get a third. Talked with tech and confirmed wired exactly right, works great for as long as it last then poof.......nothing.
I have a Corvette, so I wanted my wife to be able to watch DVDs on long trips while I'm driving. I went online to research a product that would allow me to do that. The PAC TR-7 appeared to be the best product for what I wanted to do. I purchased the PAC TR-7 and had it installed with a new Alpine radio. The results were fantastic and the PAC TR-7 did everything as promised. And most importantly, my wife loves it.
Could not get it to work. There Is a product that we bought on eBay that does work. DON'T BUY
If you enjoy video as much as I do, this is what you need. This bypass module keeps the video rolling while you do the same. I recommend this module to anyone who feels the same because it works like a champ and is really easy to install.
This is a great product. The TR-7 can perform numerous functions due to it's design. I have used this product for my Alpine W-200 and now my Alpine W505. The TR-7 comes factory set for the Alpine by-pass. Also included, is a instruction sheet for the various capibilities of the TR-7. I highly recommend this product. Sonic Electronics was great in verfying the product was in stock and shipped it out same day. Awesome!!
easy to use and install
I got this 6 months a go n it works great the only problem was the I other the newer one n got the old model so I had to program my self to my Alpine indash but beside that it a really go product
This is a must have, whats the point in have a dvd player if you cant play it with the e brake engaged? it is easy to install just find out what wires you will need first. i didnt need 3 of them i found that info on a forum somewhere. works great. no problems ease of you ill give 4 stars because of the lack of information provided for installi wanted a babysitter. but after an hour i had it wired up.. just wire up with the wires already there. easy to install when doing a head unit upgrade.
This product is well worth every penny! Since I purchased this product I haven't experienced and cons so I have none to mention. I am very pleased with my purchase.
i just got in my pac tr-7 to bypass the video signal lock on the clarion vrx765vd indash dvd player. it works great. the only problem i had with it were with the programing instructions. they are a little on the confusing side but just read them a few times and dont try reading them as your programing it and you should be fine.
Had stero shop install. He said it didn't work and just used a relay instead. Waste of money. Do not buy for using as brake by pass. Get the microBypass instead.
I have had this installed for about a year on an Alpine IVA-w203. Works as described, no issues wiring it up, though you need to be comfortable with soldering for proper connections.
Please be safe and do not watch the DVD's while driving. This will allow that, but more importantly, it unlocks a few settings menus while not in park.
Easy to hook up. No problems with install and no issues with the product
Bought this thing little skeptical, was easy to install, works excellent would recommend anyone with wanting to modify the radio use this part.
Perfect fit , great price and as usual extremely fast shipping
worked exactly as explained, easy to hook up, only use wires that match your vehicle and leave the rest disconnected
Correct parts fast delivery exactly what I needed for NY car
Did not work for my car
I exchanged for PAC-TR1 which works perfectly with Alpine ILX-W650 in a 2004 Volvo v70 wagon.
My kids can now watch dvd's on my head unit. Keeps them quite on our long travels. Easy to install thanks to YouTube. Con this item was not made for my head unit but thanks to YouTube video I found out how to wire to my head unit.
Works as advertised. No need for programming if it's for video unlocking while driving.
