    Here’s the link for the custom developed Aux-in mod for the factory 6-disc HU:

    Otherwise at this time, your only other option is an FM modulator

    Enjoy!
    What kind of paint are you using for the bezel. It looks like a semi-gloss black. There is a spray product that is basically a spray on rubber coating. I believe it's called Plastidip. Might give that a try to get the factory soft touch look. The spray can be found at Home Depot.

    Right now I have used a rubberized bumper coat paint (a few coats of that, sanded to smoothen it out and still leave a bit of texture) then a lighter paint to match the dash.

    The color is ok, but I would like the texture to match the dash a little better.

    Hi new member here. Im currently looking to buy a 2005 Outback 2.5 XT Limited and plan to carputerize. Just thought i'd say this thread is hot! At least from my point of view as a prospective buyer and carputerite wannabe. I was wondering hows the install going? Do you have any more helpful tips or advice? I'll be shopping around but in the mean time good luck; keep an ear out for me with details of my install as soon as I get rolling.
    Thanks.

    Yeeeeeeeeaaa! I bought my '05 Outback 2.5 XT LTD last weekend! It was a trade-in @ a Nissan dealership in Houston and I worked them down to $23,700! I've been seeing 2002's in the paper for like $22k so I think I got a good deal, seeing that the MSRP is in the $30's. SUCKERS!!! Im moving out to Los Angeles on monday and once I'm settled in I'll start my install. Keep this thread alive!

    The screen is now in the car and I have tested it with my laptop - works pretty well. Jazzy's Aux-in mod (on the legacygt.com site) works well and sounds much better than an FM modulator, even the ones that plug directly into the FM antenna port.

    Now that I have the BU-353 GPS receiver I think I will mount that under the dash behind the screen, as it is sensitave enough to get plenty of satellites there.

    I am probably going to just use a laptop for now in the car, the only trick is how to power it properly without using an inverter.

    So far I feel that the Outback and Legacy is an easy car to put a carputer in. The dash and stereo all comes out and goes back to gether well without too much trouble, and since it has a spot designed for installing a screen into (the cubby bin where the factory nav goes), it is easy to get a monitor in there.

    nice work!
    could you elaborate on that vga-usb cable please?
    I'm building an all in one unit(hopefully will work) and that cable it's way to long and I would like to make it shorter but not sure where to begin. I have the 669HB monitor. also from where did you get those wires?
