    Kudos for this, I think Im going to toss my name into the arena for this as well. Ive ordered my NavTV & multimedia kit for my other video needs since Ive decided not to upgrade to the Alpine X009-GM, sticker shock!

    2muchspl, which NavTv and multimedia kit are you going with? I used one in a 2006 Escalade, worked like a charm.

    I got a barracuda https://www.navtv.com/product/163/barracuda.html and PAC GMRVD MM Kit. These would give me AV in for the Mimic & PS3,AV out for 20" flipdown and VIM. I dont plan to add FLIR or any other cameras, etc

    Re: Iphone touch screen control

    Made progress last night, got the firmware updated and applied power, and saw the X2 via bluetooth on my iPhone

    Sent a few emails to Dave at customGodz and he answered all my questions and was excited to see the install.



    Picture just shows a few LED's on, and the pairing of the iPhone and the Mimics.

    Next step is to rip the navi apart and install the module.

    I didn't even know it had Bluetooth. Can't wait to see it in action.

    Re: Iphone touch screen control

    big rob 1 & Quantum quick question.. is our Nav fed with a ribbon cable and being hooked up like it is on page 5 of the PDF instructions? Or do we have to tap into the 4 wires.

    Big Rob. How or what are the two wires to switch between Nav and Mimics hooked to? I dont see it in the PDF. I see what the white wires for IOS home screens is for but wont need that. I'm goin Android (even though I have a jailbroken touch already)

    Most of the information is in this thread, might have to read it from the beginning again.

    That post I believe answers your question, it is a ribbon, and on page 7 (step 5) I believe that is how it will be hooked up. ( I haven't ripped mine apart yet, that's the next step).

    The two wires are for switched 5v for the the BLUE wire on the Mimics, when 5V is applied to the blue wire, all touch input is directed to the mimics, which then transmits the coordinates via bluetooth to your iOS device.

    Any other questions, just ask.

    Re: Iphone touch screen control

    Thanx Rob! I did have a chance to email Dave, you are correct about the blue wire needing power (5V or 12V?). I had a chance to install my NavTV & MM Kit today and learned a few things. The video will need to be split if you wanted the Andoid/iOS displayed on the RSE, in other words I could easily get video in to the Nav but the Nav wont send that AUX video back out to the RSE. This is minor and Ill add a powered video splitter, since a simple Y will degrade composite.

    Ive ordered my Mimics today and took a few pics of my Galaxy II via AUX, If you dont do it,Ill make a full write up on the install (esp the dismantling of the nav)

    Hopefully these pics will entice others to do it like yours did me!
