Talking Pimped My Ride..well sort of

I had this DVD/Navigation/Stereo Head Unit installed today. It is made by Farenheit and has a 4.3" screen. It fits perfectly in our cars single DIN configuration. the only thing you need to do is trim the rubber on the foglight knob. It tilts to 3 diff. posiions and lays flat when not in use and has a remote. The unit also has AV inpputs in case you want to hookup your "Speedracer" rearview camera while at the track or more likely....a 6 disc changer.

I got it installed for the NAV feature, the DVD movie was just an added benefit that mwy not be used much. I like to go driving down the smaller back roads and i hate hanging the portable unit off the car widshield, where my Radar detector already resides, too much clutter. this is a sweet install.

My friend at http://www.soundfx-ny.com in Central valley, NY installed it. He has a Turbo and posts on Pelican/rennlist. Since this was the demo unit and first install, I was his "volunteer"and it really came out nice. Not overpowering looking in our older cars, but a large enough screen to be useful.

Power output is way better than my old Blaupunkt, DVD feature works great and the NAV is very easy to see.

That looks pretty sweet! Does it have a MP3 player hookup? I did away with the CD changer/CD player/Cassette.

I have a Blaupunkt MP3 radio and CF cards only, and I love it!

Here's a thread with the MP3 player installed but the head unit is different...

That looks great as well. Is that a laser jammer underneath the unit??

As far as an MP3 input, I don't think so. I know it has a port so that you can load SD cards w/ MP3s, movies, pics, etc. and a mini-usb port. IMO, with the DVD capability, the best bet is to load a DVD with a ton of MP3s

No, that's a built in K40 radar detector.
