    Re: Navigation while driving

    Well I finally got it up and running. I had to add a on/off switch to turn off the speed sensor wire so I could input my address while driving. Only issue is that the nav stops moving at that time. So it's not moving or updating all the time I've got the button pushed in. Once I turn it back on the nav starts moving and updating again. It then takes a small bit to get up to date on exactly where were at at that time. So. mine's not as cool as all of yours as it's an extra step and a delay but needless to say I can input an address at 70 just as long as my new destination is reached after the nav updates.

    Re: Navigation while driving

    Good Job
    As stated earlier, they must have changed something in 2006 to stop this from working.
    Fine, then we will add a switch to turn it on and off.

    Is your switch a toggle switch or a pushbutton?
    I hope you put an on/off type rather than a momentary pushbutton.
    Hopefully you are trying to hold the button in with one hand while entering an address with the other!!

    Where did you mount the switch?

    For some reason this forum will not let me edit the above message anymore. Something about 40 minutes have expired. Never seen that message before
    Anyway, I meant to say
    "Hopefully you are NOT trying to hold the button in with one hand while entering an address with the other!!"

    Re: Navigation while driving

    It's a standard on/off push botton switch. For sure not a momentary button. That would have been a pain. I mounted it on the drivers side bottom of the center console, nearest the bottom of the dash. I'll get a pic of it later today for ya. I just didn't want to add it into the main dash

    You can add a $2.69 dollar on/off switch like I did and it works fine

    Re: Navigation while driving

    On mine, both the green wires with the white stripes were on the smaller connector. There was a diagram posted as to which one of the two to cut. If you cut the wrong one, the speakers on on side of the truck will not work....then its the other wire.
    My nav will also need the on/off switch like the one posted above in order for this to work.

    Re: Navigation while driving

    OBX -
    You seem to know the electronics/wiring in the dash near the HU. Can you advise which wire I should tap for switchable 12v? I'm using it to power my NAV TV unit. I tapped on in the larger radio wire harness but it only sends 12volts when the hearlights are on.
    Thanks very much.
    Rcaddy.
    BTW - snipped the nav wire...no problem at all. It defaulted to a new "Zone" on the east coast but after I reset to my zone in the PNW it found me in no time flat...maybe 3 minutes.

    Re: Navigation while driving

    I am not sure about which one is switchable 12 volts.
    I will post this picture of the full radio wiring schematic and see if it helps.
    The red box shows 12 volts with a note "Hot at all times" on the orange wire
    I can found the ACC/RUN/START schematics if that will help.
    Lets start with this drawing




    And here is the fusing of the ACC/RUN ignition switch.



    And one more of 12 Volt Power Distribution. This one may help you.

    Re: Navigation while driving

    Hey MBO:
    Where did you get that switch? Does it illuminate?
    Lastly, what made you install it there and not higher up, say on the egde of the console....so maybe its alittle higher to reach while driving. Was there any reason to install it there?
    THANKS
