    finishing touches

    Now all I have to do is get my Navi to work again, lol. I think it's the radio, but the touchscreen feature isnt working which wont allow me to enter my code, I can still watch movies on it via the Av Electronic and Pyle DVD player. It's done this before, but suddenly started working again, I'm hoping for the same results...

    I also have to finish trimming out the LCD, I'm going to cut out some 1/2'' of wood to hide the spaces at the top and bottom of the LCD.

    I also ran an Ipod cable to the console which displays my Iphone 3GS out on all the screens in the car, so when I run ORB, I can tap into my cable at home and not miss any action when I'm on the road, the cable also charges my phone.

    PDANET gives me complete internet access, which is sweet when freinds or my kids wanna seach the net while we're on the road.

    Hey Blizz,

    Looks very nice. I'm planning on getting started on my 05 TL shortly as well. A had a couple quick questions:

    I'm curious what you used for your power supply? Could you provide a link?

    As well as the AVElectric you've mentioned to convert your factory screen in to a TV. I'm actually kind of surprised that the quality looks that decent on your pictures. Could you provide a link to that as well?

    Much appreciated.

    sup Logical,

    Here's a link for the Av Electric unit...http://www.avelectronic.com/

    I pulled power from my amp, I just put wired in a switch before the amp to be able to power off and on the puter. the switch it actually pictured above inside the deep armrest.

    Interesting. Did you install a Startup/Shutdown Controller as well?

    Would you mind describing where you located your amp, avelectronic, carpc, Soundgate Aux3 or any other "big" components you've added to the mix. Centralized it all in the trunk? Or do you have components under your seat as well? Also, if you happen to have some extra time would you mind taking a few pictures of your trunk? Or any other place you can get access to take a picture.

    Few more questions:
    Do you have anything you would have done differently throughout the process? Any of the components you bought that you would have liked to gone another route? Different cables? Different wiring? Had any issues with it? Something that has just annoyed you about the whole thing?

    And have you lost any of the "factory" functionality? Something like your XM radio doesn't work? CD Changer has no audio? Have to do some weird "button pressing" or turn something on in order to get sound working type of thing?

    My apologies if these sound like retarded questions. I'm just trying to get a feel for what's "easiest" from someone who has been there and done that.

    Thanks, buddy.
