    well, maybe "seamlessly integrates" was the wrong phrase to use. it does not pause or lower the volume when directions are given, but i also have't had any trouble hearing the directions over the music. that's just me though. but mobile impact does natively embed IG, meaning no modifications of IG or the front end itself are needed, such as iGLaunch, iGMod, Skinbedder, custom skins, etc. just fire up MI, select GPS, and the program automatically looks for an installation of IG (or freedrive for that matter) and embeds it. the skinned buttons give you all the same functions within IG, just with a better interface. check out the MI forum for more info and check out these screen shots to see what i mean:

    just a few updated pics to show the mobile impact front end and the new monitor at work. nothing too special. wanted to get a couple more, but the battery in my camera died. the new lilliput (629gl-70np) is definitely better than the older model (619gl-70np). picture seems to be crisper and brighter. i'm pretty happy with it. anyway....

    EDIT: see two posts down for pics.

    great to see another mazda 6 carputer up.

    I have a similar setup.

    You should check out my install to relocate your GPS mouse to a better position.

    I got the same lilliput TS which died after 8 months of regular use... same story as most of other forum users. Good luck with yours

    Nice install!

    I will be trading my car in for a Mazdaspeed 6 soon and seeing your setup is making me feel better about the install of my current setup.

    How did run the power cables? Directly to your battery or to an existing power source, like the cig lighter?

    Thanks.
