Should answer most of your questions:
HD Radio Cables READY!
Ok guys- fry me if you need to-
I keep seeing that the Visteon or Directed HD units might solve my problem of wanting to get rid of (completely) the fact head unit and allow me to have AM/FM HD radio functionality if you use "Mitch's cable".
Two questions occur to me-
Who is Mitch ( and a link to this mysterious cable perhaps) ?
Which gets the vote Visteon or Directed.
ok a PS - and WHY?
I see you have the Visteon
How are you using it and what have been your thoughts since using it?
Using it with roadrunner... Works really well. Definitely the best radio option in my opinion
As far as I can tell, the Directed and Visteon units are nearly identical. Get whichever one is cheapest on ebay.
TruckPC - gutted, being used for test setup
BoatPC - All in 1 in cuddy, N7 using VNC on dash, RR
BlazerPC - Nexus 7 with Timur's USBROM
I have both and the Directed gets better reception in my very unscientific tests. LOL
Anyway there is a Directed on Ebay for $90 shipped :
My 2007 Yukon XL setup. http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...64-5000-a.html
I Think the directed is also better.. but does anyone want to part with the display panel
per post http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/vbcl...?do=ad&id=2590 .. I just cant find it anywhere.. One thing though make sure you can get over the fact it willl either choose hd or normal fm... think of it as a skipping cd.. when it kicks in to HD and then back to analog mode.
KIAs can have car pcs too..
