I was wondering if i updated my navigation system with the latest cd, would it also update the Operating system as well? Is there a way to update the operating system/program it/personallize it?
Thanks in advance?

Plus the labor and time involved would be better put towards a car pc(which btw is wicked) I had a radio that ran windows ce and it worked great but the radio has died and I haven't had the chance or time to fix it(if I do fix it I will upgrade the amp chips in it)

There is a few sites online(I have thought of doing this myself since I am good with computers I just don't have the time nor do I feel like give up the stock nav just yet) do a google search on carputer or car pc there is a lot of people doing this most of them use a older Mac mini(with intel processor) because it is a small machine with a DVD drive.
Just keep in mind that you will need a interface for the truck for the audio and the steering wheel controls
I may someday get into doing something like this but not now although I don't mind helping anyone who does

It's all in how much work you are willing to put into the project
I know how you feel about the snow my back gives me fits when it snows
