    NU-CTS2 by PAC Audio or LockPick by Coastal Tech

    I understand this topic may be a bit in the forum ... to be totally honest I want the DVD video unlocked so my Kid can watch her Dora the Explorer ... and because I cant seem to get enough dora during the evenings and weekends ...

    Anyways, which is the better product? Figured this would be the place to ask as there are probably lots of users with both devices. Oh and btw, up here in Canada I could watch all the TV/DVD I want while driving down the road ... as long as its "handsfree" if that makes any sense .

    Thanks ahead of time for your input.

    Can't speak for the PAC Audio, but the Coastal Tech works great.

    Cool thanks, I just want one that doesn't interfere with any of the other onboard features. Does your lockpick have any effect on your other stuff .. NAV,Bluetooth .. etc?

    I honestly haven't gotten it for my CTS yet, but I had the Lockpick on my STS. No problems with anything else, and I had nav and bluetooth on that one as well...worked great. I don't have any reservations about picking it up for my CTS, just haven't gotten around to it yet. It was relatively easy to install (plug and play), looks a little more involved getting access to radio with CTS, but still not too bad, just be careful taking off the dash/console pieces.

    The install isn't bad, just watch the install video and you should be able to do it in under 30 minutes. I picked up a used one on ebay from a guy doing a lease turn in, think I paid $90 for it.

    Great deal! If anyone else out there has a used one they want to get rid of...I'd be interested. I just really hate how it won't even let the passenger enter a new address in the nav while moving. I know what they were thinking, but c'mon!

    Thanks for the replies ... anybody in the Northern US or Canada have any experience. I know sometimes when electronics are subjected to harsh climate (ie. -40C) they can fizzle out like alka seltzer when the get turned on it those temps.

    cheers!

    Most electronics without moving parts are typically ok. I would be more concerned about a hard drive based system (even through they are not the typical computer hard drive).

    I have been using my lockpic for 2 years with no problems. Install is so easy a caveman could do it.

    Works for me...I just ordered one too. Another thing I have to do this spring...although I did finally have it out of the garage last Friday as we finally got some decent weather. You forget how nice this car is until you take it out after driving a '03 Mercury Sable for nearly 5 months.
