Default Alpine GPS electrical connections

Okay I have a question. I got 1 red wire then it splits off into 2 with connectors. Then a yellow wire that does the same

The instructions say for the red wire to hook to a switched power lead. Which I was gonna tap into my power wire for my radio

The yellow one says Battery Lead connect to positive terminal of battery. Im confussed cause both have male/female connectors

I'd hook it up like 'normal'. Yellow to battery, red to switched power.

So just cut the connector off the yellow and run it up to the battery?

The yellow wire has a inline fuse already attached to it

Isnt there a rule of thumb to have it 6" from the battery though

Just read your other thread. Does the receiver/tuner have anything to connect these wires to. If it doesn't, I'd even double up on fuses to protect baby (one at battery and one supplied by Alpine). By the way congrats on your 'toys'.

That's pretty weird how this hooks up. On my Pioneer it's all just built in so it's just a matter of wiring up the main harness.

Ya it works

Wish I could figure a way to bypass the parking brake and brake wires so I can access stuff without having to park the truck and go through the steps.
