    Can you give me more details? Is that the conversion you did (put new monitor into unit)? With instructions? I have and can use a solder iron, but no microscope.

    The details are in this thread.

    As for a soldering iron, it has to be a very fine tip and a microscope is almost a "must have".

    I can convert the radio for you but it won't be cheap, and dealing with Canada customs is a nightmare.

    It isn't just installing a new monitor, but also the rescaler board to convert the composite sync to HV signals.

    The one function that does "go away" is the watching a dvd as the rescaled cannot keep up with the content.

    The map DVD nav works however.

    I use the MacMini to watch anything.

    Well, it does seem like a lot of work for very little benefit, given my goal.

    I'm really only wish to capture the "Driver Information Center" info (presumably off the GMLAN) as I would just mount my LILLIPUT monitor into the dash. I just need to find an adapter to sniff the data and look for the right messages. I can make a plugin for the front end to pop up the messages.

    I've read a few threads (even ones you have contributed to) that suggest a $50 dongle + DLL should get me sniffing the bus. Any recommendations on that?

    There are plenty of OBDII sniffers, it just so happens that the one I bought doesn't talk to a Mac(!).lol

    There are a few nice installs of non factory equipment.
