LOL! Yeah... couldn't even see the dust when I was in there... the flash made it all appear. That's L.A. for you... I washed the car on Friday, and by the evening yesterday, the whole car was covered with a layer of dust.ict330xi said:Plaz, have you had your car long enough to have dust on your console? Nice rez on the camera! And thanks for the idea! I knew I shoulda got the nav!
There are people working on shareware/freeware Windows utilities -- I'm a Mac guy, so I'm not sure where those apps stand at this point. I'm sure they'll get it working eventually though.hantavirus said:Nice job, you can barely notice the wiring. Heard good things about iPod, but also heard that you need a Mac to use it. Is that true?
I use OS X all the time (it's what I do for a living!), and I've had no issues posting here. See, I'm doing it now!SONET said:PS Speaking of Macs, do you use OSX? If so, do you experience problems posting to this forum using IE on OSX like I do?
Hmm. Seems to work for me, though the dialog that comes up doesn't tell you what it wants. Bold Italics LargeSONET said:I should have been more specific - I can post here using OSX. I just can't use the stuff in the 'vB Code' section (bold, quote, etc.). What's up with that? :dunno:
Otherwise OSX is great;I bought my laptop in anticipation of OSX last year instead of a Dell machine, and I'm glad I did. Nothing like having a terminial window running while having a nice GUI and app selection along with it. OSX is the only way to have all three at once without having to telnet/ssh to a *NIX box IMHO.
You're welcome. It took about ten minutes. The screen is motorized. Choose safety over sound quality, if necessary. Good luck!punkman79 said:hey plaz. thanks SOOOOOO much for those pics and the info. you are going to save me a bunch of money now. i THOUGHT i would have to get a trunk cd changer but I am convinced that I can hook up a MP3 CD player using the casette adapter now. that looks like a very clean install. how long did it take you? is the NAV screen motorized flip down or do you manually move it down to access the cassette deck? so there was enough room behind the screen to hold the wire huh. cooool. now my next dilemna is to whether keep my HK upgrade or get the Xenon's instead. I am on a budget and don't want to splurge on both. thanks again....
The sound is not ideal, but it sounds better to me than the little FM transmitters or modulators. Given that an MP3 is not of ideal quality to begin with, it works well enough. No jacks on the nav that I've seen.SONET said:I have seen those tape adapters before, but I have never used one nor do I quite understand how they work. Is there much loss in the quality of the sound that comes out of them, like tape vs. CD?
Also, does the NAV system have any sort of audio-in jacks in the back?

It is amazing. Having used NeXT machines back in the day, it's gratifying to see where the technology has been taken. It's an awesome, stable, elegant OS.Imola Ed said:

I love being able to have all my favorite Mac apps and still have a BSD unix system underneath. You can download any standard distribution of anything like mysql or whatnot, and just compile it and go. It's totally cool!
The newer updates really speed things up... if you already have it installed, run the software update preferences panel... and update the system. It really makes a difference, especially on non-G4 machines.jag3er said:I'm ready to jump to the OSX but since I have an old G3 tower, the OSX 10.0.3 seems very slow on my machine. I can't really justify getting a new Mac since the old one still does everything I want it to do.
Here's a pic to bring back memories. I turned it on just to take this picture...Plaz 330i said:

Nice! That's an '030 cube, too, isn't it? Not even a "turbo" '040 pizzabox!Imola Ed said:
