    Re: Navigation while driving

    I just tried to do mine. I'm not sure what went wrong. Either I clipped the wrong wire or this doesn't work for my NAV setup. I've got a 06 ESV Platinum. I wouldn't think that the NAV is a different unit. But I can now enter an address at any speed. Here's the problem now. The NAV doesn't move at all now. The arrow shows me still where I had snipped the wire not where I was driving at the time. The screen is also black now like it is at night. I turned the lights on and it stayed black. Turned them back to auto, screen went back to the daytime color and then switched back to black or night time colors.

    Anyone have a clue what's wrong?

    If not then I guess I've got to reconnect that wire

    Thanks

    Mike

    I can totally pull this off. GREAT INFO.

    The nav tool comes with a toggle switch. basically, when you hook it up to the rse it will show whatever is on the rear screen on the nav if you have the toggle switch on. If you switch the toggle off it goes back to just showing the normal nav display.

    I would check your GPS antenna. Maybe it got unplugged when you pulled the radio out.

    This diagram shows the antenna going into the radio.
    I am not sure which coax is the antenna.

    Re: Navigation while driving

    I've got that plugged in and still nothing. I've also reconnected that single wire I clipped. It's still not working properly. Right now it's says the truck is at the Reniaissance Center in Detroit. It's really in my driveway just a few miles down the street in Omaha Nebraska

    Re: Navigation while driving

    I am running the PAC ipod adapter in my truck. Do I find the corresponding wire in the input from the PAC or clip the wire from the original wires running into the head unit?

    Re: Navigation while driving

    Well I got it all back working. But it back to normal. My setup would not work without that wire connected. The Nav wouldn't move or update at all. So I hooked that cut wire back up and made it all normal again. I'm bummed to say the least. This is a Delphi unit. Not sure if that's the difference or because it's a 06. Nevertheless it doesn't work.

    I thought about adding a switch to turn off that wire when I wanted to input an address while driving but didn't want to have the switch in plain view and wasn't sure where to really put it otherwise and make it accessible

    Re: Navigation while driving

    OXB-The instructions that came with the Nav-tool says to connect the green wire to the vehicles parkiing brake switch. At the parking brake switch which wire do I connect the green wire to?? Thanks

    Just connect that wire to ground unless you only want to be able to view the video input while the parking brake is on. Sorry, if that is what you want i am no help as to what wire to connect it to. but there should just be two wires on that switch. one that is already grounded and one that is not. you would want to connect it to the one that isn't grounded.

    What did you do to get it working again?
    Did driving the truck around for 5-10 minutes make it start updating again?

    That wire IS for the vehicle at speed. That was proven by the fact that you could enter addresses while moving.
    The NAV not updating is a different problem I think.

    I don't have the NAV TOOL thingy. Can't help you with that question.

    Yes, driving it a bit finally got it registered again and working normally. I then went back home and snipped the wire and tried it again. I drove it around for about 20 minutes and also stopped a few times to see if it would catch up to itself. Nope. Never did. I reattached the wire and drove up the street and again it was working properly again.

    It's just my luck
