LR2 with dash board cubby.
The first thing you have to do is to pry the speaker cover off. Start at the top...
...and lean it towards you to remove.
this is what you'll be left with.
You need to remove the screws that are on the top - there are 4 of them. Two of them hold the cubby in place, two of them hold the fascia in place.
Remove this cover...
...and remove these screws.
With your fingers, separate the fascia by pulling out and toward you. You may have to pull both sides at once.
You'll need to detach the wiring harness and remove the whole fascia.
These are the two pieces of the fascia.
This is the Magellan Roadmate 1700 right out of the box. I recommend that you leave the plastic protector on the screen until after you've finished installation.
On the inside of the fascia, you'll need to break off (or grind off with a Dremel) several small plastic pieces that get in the way of the GPS screen sitting flush with the bezel.
Grind these down...
Once these are ground down, insert the GPS into the hold from behind and situate it, square it up however you like it.
I used two part epoxy to permanently glue my unit to the fascia.
While the GPS is drying, work on the wiring.
I chose to plug in a 12v/10a extension into the fuse box underneath the glove box, and I used the adapter that comes with the Magellan to power the unit from there. I also attached the USB cord to the unit and left it dangling into the glove box so that I could update the GPS unit from my laptop when new firmware is available. Ultimately, how you choose to power your unit is up to you - but I recommend that whatever power source you choose, you should find one that turns off with your car. The Magellan 1700 DOES turn on/off with the car! It's awesome.
