Mygig info for 08+
 
my gig non nav(ren) hack to play dvds while in motion... (truck in park, start dvd,hit audio button, put car in drive, hit ok button on screen, dvd while driving:)

download version 8.4 from here http://mofv.com/MyGIG/NoNav/REN_8.400.zip
Unzip the files to your Hard drive and burn them to a CD data disc:
Burn the CD at 2x speed for maximum reliability, and disable multisession (Add files later) on your burning software.
1. For Version 8.400 - Name the CD to REN_8.400 when burning it. (Recommended)
2. Root directory MUST contain only one folder and two files:
BECKER (folder)
CD_INFO.CDI
CONFIG.CDI
Start your car (Recommended), Load the CD in your MyGIG radio and the update will automatically start once the disc is recognized. Updating will take around 15 minutes.
For Version 8.400 - Click the No soft key prompt window then Remove the CD after you see the "Update from 8.400 to 8.400" screen.

Irf, get a flat head screw driver and place it under the out/under/larger bezel (the part that's not chrome). Gently pry at this part until the chrome bezel becomes loose. Then pull up on the chrome bezel carfully (it's all just snaps).

Irf - I used a plastic putty knife thingy...a very thin piece of plastic that is used to smooth out plaster. Worked very well and ensures you wont f-up the chrome or wood trim! And I EVENLY went around the whole piece, not pulling one corner/side out completely...I would gently pry around the entire bezel so it is somewhat loose then go back around again and pop it out. Does that make any sense? HAHA

REN is my gig w/o nav. i didn't want the nav so i got it w/o the nav. there is a software hack for this version to play dvds while in motion.

if you have the my gig w/nav that is the RER and there is no software hack for the dvd to play while in motion but there is a hardware hack which takes 15 mins and cost $200(pm/call me) for the site with the cheapest price.


thanks scott

First off I got no Baby Momas no no need for rear ves for me. My My Gig plays movies when it's in park. You can get a lockpic for MyGig for like $200. that unlocks to play dvd's in motion and full interface of GPS while driving. On the 08+ the inputs arre behing the console too where my dc plug is.

Re: Installing factory rear ves
 
Has anyone done the lockpick/hardware update for the MyGig w/ NAV to allow the full-function of the Nav/DVD while driving? I really want to do this, esp for the Nav and for long road trips
