It's really not that expensive either. You can get a decent 10 ft patch for $6-$7, throw a OBD2 connector in there $4.99, an RJ-45 and a resistor $1.00 each (worst case) and maybe $5 in shipping getting it all to you and your cable cost you $18.99. Not a bad deal if you consider it would have cost you $100+ to activate DVD in motion.

any chance i can buy one off of you? paypal you money for a cable?
