    A "Mac'd V"

    This is for the Cadillac CTS and CTS-V (04 -07)

    After a few years of getting no info from GM or DELPHI I finally got the information to hack the display for a VGA input.

    I have started integrating a Mini Mac into the OEM radio (it fits!) by removing the cd changer

    Whoo Hoo!

    UPDATE TO THIS POST

    I ended up with no room to plug in anything with out going through the firewall, so the Mini Mac got mounted behind the armrest.

    The "logic" behind this project is the fact that GM screwed the aftermarket with the BOSE system.

    The head unit cannot be replaced with an aftermarket unless one wants to put up with losing driving functions.

    Some POS engineer was probably slapping himself on the back over that one.

    IT fits, and the slots line up!

    To bad I couldn't plug anything in!

    I made similar modification to my Audi A3 stock unit (Symphony II and Concert III)
    Your job look promising.

    Thanks!

    The hard part is working with 30 gauge wire under a microscope.

    You can't do this kind of work without the right equipment.

    Glad I don't have the "shakes". LOL

    Here is what the OEM radio looks like:

    I may have circuit boards and a finished board to show you next week.

    Tedious work isn't it?
