    New Head unit Installed

    I picked myself up a JVC KW NT-800HDT headunit. This unit has it all:

    7" Screen
    3D Navi
    Bluetooth with an excellent mic
    Bluetooth Audio
    IPod Integration
    Pandora and iHeart Radio Apps
    USB
    Free Real Time Traffic
    Hooked up to my rear view cam
    ETC...
    I keep my iPod Touch and Verizon WIFI hotspot in the car and it gives me every source of music I could want. I will post pics once I figure out the permanent place for the Pod and hotspot.





    I should have done this sooner. The sound is much better than the stock headunit. Now I need some speakers to round out the system. I will keep you guys posted on my choices.

    Very nice. Caddy upset me by not having all the DIC info simply scroll through under the speedo where it should be, then there would be a real purpose to that steering wheel button to scroll through that info. Why they put a digital speedo next to a perfectly good analog speedo?

    I've owned my v for about 2 months and I can't wait to rip this piece of crap nav unit and speakers out. Great car but the nav/stereo has to go, regardless of dic info.

    Are there any other ill effects of removing the oem head unit? I really want to get rid of dont really care bout the temp and odometers and such. Can you swap tge unit and still use the stock bose speakers? Does traction control and stability control still work? Thanks

    no effects at all. if you do go with another head unit, get rid of the bose speakers too.

    Will the oem bose speakers humm if you swap the H/U but not the speakers? I had bose in my 350z and swapped just the head unit and there was like a fuzzy/scratchy/humming sound or whatever you want to call it when there was no music or other media playing. I ended up doing everything in that and dont really want to do that with this car. I hate that f*@$en stock thing.

    Re: New Head unit Installed

    So i followed your link, and it looks to be the same thing. I started browsing and it seems pretty simply to put in a stereo. Pick the one you want, buy the pac adapter to keep the chimes and thats it? All plug in play? Am I missing something? Yes I know you lose your DIC stuff but is it really that easy?
