    Very clean looking install--nice job.

    Is that a powermate usb knob by the shifter?
    The backlit start button is nice too. Where'd you find that?

    My solution to Auto Power ON Lilliput screen

    All thanks to coyote, but before i done this i used to switch it on from the on button.

    Look at this picture,
    http://uk.f2.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/...&.dnm=6143.jpg

    i extended the buttons with a printer cable, the buttons were in the glove box. It was quite annoying to switch it on everytime i switched the car on.
    Thanks coyote!!!
    i was gonna do a micro relay system switch otherwise.
