Holy Cow! Now that it's in -- it's so very cool. It has definitely exceeded my expectations.
My thanks to everyone who has posted on these forums. It's everyone's previous experience that helped me get to something that works so well.
And let me say, the transflective upgrade is worth every penny! It means the difference between something ok and something GREAT!
Now I just need to get the other tweaks all setup..
Next: elmscan, attach steering wheel controls (i need some harness stuff for my steering column), install the backup camera...
