Re: Anybody installed....

Does anybody know if you can still listen to a DVD while driving or does it completely disable the DVD drive when not in park (i.e. concert dvd's, etc) ?

I just tried, and the DVD will still run and you can hear the audio. the video is only in park (on the manual there are a bunch of other things that must happen, but basically if you are in park you can watch)

Thanks for checking, silverbullet!
That's exactly what I was wondering.

The dealer is installing my 430N as we 'speak' and I was curious....

Re: Anybody installed....

I'm really thinking about ordering one when my jeep comes in. Ive had several trucks that "blacked out" key features when moving, and I hate it!!

I have had it installed for a month or so. Works great with 730n. DVD while driving, enter nav stuff while driving and wired up the additional inputs as well. The only thing I did not bother with was the ability to turn the backup camera on at any time.

is there something special you have to do to get that feature? what company did you buy your lockpick from?

Backup camera power source is the reverse/backup lights. To get control of it all the time you have to run a power wire from lockpick back to the camera so it can be powered up (aka activated) at any time via the nav unit. Didnt want to mess with removing a lot trim and other stuff yet since that is how you end up with rattles and noises sometimes depending on how things are attached or built.

Install was fairly easy. Hardest part was getting the trim around the radio off. Unlike past jeeps this one is tightly installed. Be careful take your time and work it out a little bit at a time. As far as the actual lockpick it was easy plug an play. Also there is plenty of room between my nav and the ac control unit to Zip tie the lockpick unit into place.
