Why would you do that? A lot of people can still get them through distributors especially here in the Northeast. Can you repost? Thanks

when hooking up the decoder to the navi via relays instead of the 4pdt switch. are you making connections to the navi computer in the trunk?

thanks in advance to stevestms for all his info.

I haven't looked in a while, but it'll be hard because they are discontinued

I don't think anyone has posted pics of the installation procedure yet.

a few descriptions..refering to Steve's instructions

#4 - the red wire in the back - that's grounding the DSEN part
the green wire

#5 is the part where I'd bend out a metal piece so the grey wire can go through

#6 is soldering the 4 conductor wires and grounding it to the back of the circuit board.

-------------------------------------
do give me time, I'm new at this,
I'll take pictures of the 4pdt relay and have it post by Friday (hopefully)...

--------------------------------------
Steve,
the power wire for the RGB box...it has an orange wire...and it's labeled "+battery"...do I just leave it alone?
also, the 4pdt relay requires me to draw current from somewhere to throw the switch around. I'd sorta figured that I could use the blue wire (from the RGB box) for my +'ve current, but I'm not sure where I could get the -'ve.
If I take it from the battery...will it be too much? or can I take it from the NAV-DVD, my headunit or from the cigarette lighter?

this will save me some soldering...the screws make it easier to connect the wire. I picked it up from an electric shop...

Question 4PDT relay -> solid state or IC?

Hi SteveStMS,

I am curious, is it necessary to use a 4PDT relay? The current in the RGB wires should be small enough to use some solid state relays, or even ICs, right? I'm only asking because of my concern about mechanical failure in the relay over time, as well as using software to switch the inputs...

you could use a 4PDT switch...saves you alot of trouble (no current needed) but that switch is hella ugly...so I'm going with the reply. :p

guess what...

it's done and it works! I'll post picture by tomorrow night.
I'll show the pictures of a movie running on my nav screen over the weekend...I haven't got a DVD player for my car yet. :p

special thanks to Steve and Ken of this site for their insight.

another thanks to Danny (a friend of mine in LA). He helped me to connect the power up to the decoder and my relay switch.
Danny is an expert on entertainment mod on cars and he do installations on weekends too!
PM me if you want to get his number.

found this on the CL board...it's another description of installing the video on Nav...

http://www.angelfire.com/super/types...onversion.html credit to TypeSDragoon

as for the relay..it's very similar to the 4PDT switch, except instead of a switch, it uses current flow to switch from NAV to alternate source. So basically, you have the current running thru the relay and add a switch (which is the purple switch I have)

i would hope that ppl who are doing this mod are not leaving their stock audio system in the car. if u go the aftermarket route, you will need a component that has an aux input. your video player should have an audio output, which would go connected w/rca cables to the component w/the inputs.

my old eclipse eq had an aux input on the back, which i used to hook up my laptop to the audio system. now im getting the jvc kdsh99 which has aux inputs in the rear and front of the hu.

but it sounds like ur going the factory route...which i have no clue how to integrate.

with the stock headunit, you'll have to add a FM modulator...
my aftermarket unit came with an AUX, so...it was easy for me.
