    My bad, yea that's not a nav unit, just looking for a double din touch screen with an SD card slot. I just want to pop in a card loaded with folders of music, I don't like fooling with auxiliary cables and fumbling with a quirky mp3 UI. I just want to select a folder and drive off. And for me it'd be best through a touch screen interface

    Yeah that will work for what you want aslong as it has the SD card slot i did not if it did or didn't but if it does then your cool

    i know i stay away form brands that are like off named or something like that
    you don't really see much of Boss i guess when they sell a unit for 199 but no one els carys that kind of unit for less then 400 there might be a reason but you might be lucky

    i bought a PYLE unit years back and had nother but trouble with it
    won't ever by a off brand or small brand i call them generic names

    want a good system but want a cheap price
    you can find them
    get a JVC or Pioneer or Sony non navi dvd in dash unit you will be better off i feel

    that is a nice unit
    but for the price they charge for those you can pick up on amazon really good quality used with warranty or refurbished Navi units

    that screan is nice cause its a bit bigger then the one i got but only because its all touch and just bottom bottons no side buttosn

    Also, would it be best if i locate an OEM HU to connect to the RIM in my trunk?
    If you do what I did, it will work.

    id like to see Pictures of how you used the OEM bracket housing if you have them
    that would give me an idea of how to do it more

    Picture of the OEM bracket of the Eldo mated to APPradio.


    See how it is adjustable (tilts up and down, but can be fixed in place by tightening the screws). The face plate is just on to cover the gap and does not "mate" to the bracket in any way. I did have to drill a couple of holes on the bottom of the face plate (not visible because it is internal) to fit the climate control unit which has two horns and tabs.

    cool thanks for the pic you know its been like 2 months since i have looked at the Old Facotry radio and bracket that i forgot what it looks like
    so in that pic the only part of the dash kit that you used aftermarket was the p[ictures

    all the bracket is just the OEM bracket correct ?

    mtflight:

    Would you be willing to help a fellow Cadillac member out in doing this? I'm not very mechanical inclined and radio shops around here want waaaaay to much money. If I build the harness, get all the required hardware, could you assist in the install?

    I'm probably about 6 months out from possibly getting the headunit as I really like your setup.

    I believe there's a thread that covers that. Try looking for my posts. 99 should be same as yours
