    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.

    Had a few "detours" and have returned to this project with the goal now of hacking the class II going to the BOSE amplifier.

    Shown is the can bus "sniffer" and the Bose amp location.
