    Unfortunately in the next two weeks I will be replacing the DWW-700M. It has some problems, most noteably with the motor mechanism getting the screen out, and problems with the Touch Screen, and colors on the screen. The nice people over at Digital World Wide have been VERY helpful with this, and are making it a pain free process. I am not sure which screen I will be swapping it out with yet, but I will keep things posted. I will be going into more detail on my screen problems in the LCD forums. But I can't express how well DigitalWW has been treating me with this issue. This is my second screen from them, and I will keep going back. A+ to them.

    Is that the JAP Nav pod for the GPS screen or was it completely custom built? How much did you get it for and from where?

    Yea it is the same as the Japanese nav pod AFAIK. It looks the same. I ordered it as the newer "gauge pack housing" expecting it be the same single din one that I'd seen on other Subaru's. The piece was more expensive than it used to be also, at $120, but I decided I'd just go on and do it since my fab skills leave a LOT to be desired (as became evident in my last car). I got it straight from a subaur dealer.

    It looks great man, but I think the dual screen would bug me out! LOL
    The last thing I need is to get confused while I'm driving... It's already hard keeping up with one monitor upfront!
    Major props to you bro'!!

    do you use the TS on the top screen?

    I am thinking of something similar but i wont be able to reach the GPS screen so will have no TS on it and have all the GPS controls on the lower screen

    I do use the TS on the top screen. Most of the time there is not need to be touching it, but when I do I'm usually not driving. It is a very far reach, making it hard to use in normal use. But when I do need it, it comes in real handy to have the top TS working.

    Here are a few other pictures of the car. When the install is totally debugged, and the screen replace the wiring will be made to be a bit neater. But either way you can't see it when the seat is pushed in a "useable" position.

    In the second pic, the four switches are (from left to right) Fog Lights, Wiper blade de-icers, Power switch for the top Navi screen, Power Switch for the PC.
    The PC Power switch is spliced in parallel with the header that goes to the OPUS.





    Sub Box (yes, i know its way too big )
