    Includes all the road maps just like anything else does, but the maps look way better with the 3D views. Just personal preference I guess.

    Here is a better pic of the USB ports with the compartment. I'll be putting it back in the car later today.

    Thanks. Both are Llumar tints, I just went to a local shop with a good reputation. They had samples of everything up on the walls. I would have liked to go 15% all around, but laws here prohibit any tint on the front windows and so I went with 28% because you can still kinda see through it and the police aren't as strict as if they can't see anything through the glass.

    Heard from Altimat that the headrest monitor install is coming along nicely. Will start work on the Xenarc soon, and get my amp and speakers installed also.
    Just out of curiousity, how is the hub secured to the panel? Is it simply hot-glued?

    I picked up some stuff from the hardware store called plastic weld, or something like that. It was in 2 tubes and you mix it in equal parts and then use it like glue.

    Sounds a lot like j.b. weld. but thats a brand name. I like how you intergrated the USB ports into your dash. Very smoth.

    It was right next to the JB weld. I picked this kind because it was formulated for lots of different kinds of plastics. Worked out well.

    I'm gonna do the same thing to my 05 altima, except i'm gonna use a laptop and put it under the passenger seat and use the cig-lighter in the center console to power it, then send the audio out to an amp in the trunk.

    My question: have you installed the screen yet? i'm trying to find a screen to fit right in the factory radio, i can't find dimensions on the Xenarc to measure, and I know the Lilliput is a little too tall.
