    it's the camera. low light means longer exposure and if you shake the camera litle bit it will blure stuff. anyway it's the same song as before in other pics.

    OK I had some trouble getting good sound from laptop to the head unit.

    baught a ground loop isolator from Radioshack which came with one 3.5mm adaptor and I baught another one and hooked everything up and now I have clear sound from laptop to my truck speakers.

    laptop is hidden under passenger seat and wires are hidden under carpet.

    whole system is working as I expected.

    OK I had a long test drive of about 1000 miles for my system.

    everything worked well as expected including the system hibernation from momentary switch.

    only thing I am not happy is that during day time (9am to 4pm) screen acts like mirror as you can see in above pictures and it's very dim so It's hardly readable. I need to do something to improve the brighness.

    awesome install 007, really nice fab work on the bezel. I especially like how you turned the ashtray and cig lighter into a spot for a head unit. Top notch.

    i think You'll find that any screen is gonna be tough to see like that, except the sunlight readable ones. The truck just has a lot of glass, and it lets a lot of light in. Especially if yours has a sunroof like mine, it can get really bad if I have the sunroof guard thing off. I imagine it's probably the same for anyone who puts a double din screen in a tacoma.

    007, I like your install. You gave me the idea to put my Alpine 701 down where the ashtray and cig lighter are in my Tacoma. I've just started putting my screen in.
