    I don't understand why you're saying x86-based CarPCs are a non-starter these days... Gives you the most flexibility, hands-down. Plus you can do fun stuff, like record video via cheap webcams, have...

    I think I will wait for this... I have heard really great things, and a 9-10" screen would work great for me.

    not sure how I missed this thread... but yes, it's exactly what I need... I mean, it'd be much simpler if I could just replace the screen with a VGA one, and probably cheaper overall, but this is...

    You can't just cut a wire to disable the VIM safety feature. It pulls that information from the GMLAN interface. You have to reflash the radio to "not care," about the higher speeds. That's what JHP...

    I'm curious, if it's a ring network, then if I removed the plug from the back of my headunit, or yanked the onstar module--wouldn't that kill the network entirely? I know you can unplug these things...

  14. SPOOF the OnStar module? I bet it would be a popular item

    I just cannot believe how much I spent on this--and how terrible it is. I could have spent another hundred dollars to get a transflective screen.

    DO NOT BUY THE 700IDT!!!
