    Installing aftermarket GPS in 2002 Explorer

    whats the brand name of the unit you bought? I had a Innovatek double din dvd touchscreen navi unit and I could use a metra harness adapter to hook it up. I would agree with the pep boys, dont solder it there should be a harness to make it work. that way you can take it out later if you want.
