    Does anyone know if this type of connection was looked into?
    While it doesn't unlock nav features while driving it does provide backup camera option and alternate video source options.
    The DTS can do it apparently.

    Pages 14-16 are GM related, looks like they are highjacking the display directly by connecting to the ribbon cable going to the monitor.

    Correct

    I was only recently made aware of it via the srx forum

    Does go inline between the screen and mother boards ribon cable

    Dads nav keeps losing time and going back to defaults all it saves is his presets so I have a used nav on the way and will have his old to play with but they do not offer anything for the sts.

    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    Getting to the ribbon cables sure looks complicated and could lead to buying a new nav unit. splicing ribbon cables. Installed the NU-STS lockpick and spent a LOT of time frustrated since it doesn't unlock video in reverse, though it did unlock nav and more importantly the phonebook (could see locking the keypad, but the phonebook lock is stupid). Finally decided to put a small folding screen which sits in the instrument cluster. Can search ebay for "Portable 3.5 inch TFT-LCD Color REAR VIEW Backup Car Monitor FOLDED" - works find since I only want it in parking lots or similar situations. The hook up is not that hard if you want more info.

    If anyone has a dysfunctional STS Nav & is willing to pull it apart, they could validate that it uses one of the pinouts in Luda's post. The pictured units don't look like our Denso ones.

    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    I hope that I am not being redundant here, and sincerely apologize if I am. Through my combing of the thread, and my view of the link to the posted lockpick product page, I am under the impression that 2006 STS lockpicks are no longer being produced. I understand that it is time consuming especially considering the limited nature of the market. However, I was wondering if there was a planned round of production in the future, or, if there is any modification that can be done to the lockpicks for the later model STS that can make it work with a 2006?

    Again, very sorry if this is redundant, I did go through the thread, but I could not find an answer.

    Anything CAN happen. I'd post in classified and frequent eBay for a few weeks.

    Worst case, Tomm may have to send a letter to Santa!
