    That's awesome. Now I won't mind the loss of the 6-disc changer at all. I just scored a 2012 system with the 10.3 CF card for $350 on eBay. Can't wait to swap and sell my old one.

    no it wont play movies off your ipod you will need the multimedia kit wire from oemautopartsco.com the nav tv and a 3.5 to RCA video wire to do that and you have to use aux. It only play music through the USB sucks even the new radio, my wife 2012 camary has more options like Bluetooth audo, Pandora, 3.5 I heard radio nav traffic for free plus bing and it doesn't even have to be connected to your phone all that has to be on is the mobile hotspot. I see other cars show pictures while playing your song of the album on the radio.

    Hey man, do a search, there is plenty of info on this site.

    No. You will not be able to just run a USB cable on the older 2007 Nav units. They do not have the option, or output on the rear. You need a 2011+ NAV unit for that, and they are found all over Ebay. Also, you will need to get the newer Nav unit reprogrammed to work in your escalade. Some companies will sell them this way, with your VIN or you need to find a local dealer willing to help.

    can anyone clarify what it takes to have the dealer program/unlock this to work? how long does it take/will they charge to do it? I only ask bc there's one on eBay that I'm very close to biting on.

    Any Caddy dealer can do it. They use a 'Tech II' tool and will probably charge you an hourly rate to do it. Nobody here can tell you what your dealer will specifically charge you, go ask yourself.

    Hi wangstarr03,

    Each dealership is different when it comes to costs. They usually charge a labor fee per hour. I recommend to contact your local dealership and discuss this with them to get more accurate information. If you have other questions please let us know.

    Sincerely,

    Laura M.
