    sorry for the late reply. At this point nothing new. Just added bluetooth to it but removed it since i didnt really use it. I have to get some new images of how the AMP install came out and a video of it all in action...

    Did you come up with an answer for this? Did you try it, or run new wires?

    Your install looks very nice. Keep up the good work. And props to Nexson. Most of us can only hope to get half that quality of work.


    Cheers,

    Hey, yes. I decided to use to stock 12+ to power the whole system. I used it since I installed it and no problems what so ever. The stock 12+ powers the car pc, the touch screen and the HD radio. No problems of any kind. The pico itx board draw really low power even at full cpu usage.
    Nexson does great work.

    Brian,

    Well the HD radio was installed right in the cavity of where the old stock radio was. Its powered by the cars 12+ source and is controlled via the serial power using a special cable that is build by a member on this forum. at the moment I dont use to radio at all. I may just remove it because it seems to have issues sometimes and suffers from poor reception. Dont know why. I will probably sell it out and get the new Boomzbox that is being sold here. its simple and uses usb and not the serial port. plus audio is transported via USB and not by the line in on the pc. but thats for later on

    As for action shot/video..i will try this weekend. No time with work and school...
    and yes brian rocks !

    BTW I just installed the Visteon HD and I think your signal problem may be related to your antenna not getting the power it needs. I have a G35 so your Nissan is probably similar. If your antenna is in the rear windshield you may need to locate and apply power to the proper wire in your audio harness. I'm in the process of figuring that out now. (As you can see here: http://www.mp3car.com/input-devices/...tuner-g35.html)
