drex replied to jean's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)gents: no issues with nav-tv unit for 72 hours. it simply rocks. and its auxillary input works as well. i do not have porsche sirius radio; however now i have AUX-in sirius radio and can move receiver between my porsche and other car. playlists/artist lists/etc load well, though the more you have, the slightly longer it takes. ver intuitive interface. photos/pics/video shot; operating manual under development. can't beat IPOD+nav-tv unit; far superior to stock CD changer.. price=$599 and one and one/half hour (generous) of your time..... :clapping: kudos to moni!
How does one go about removing the rear center console? I can't seem to figure this one out.... Any help appreciated (at least to get it started). Thanks
is the space different han that for the C2S? one would think it would fit. do you have the CD changer as well? this should fit "in there" too... if not, sell it to one of us! good luck!
nice techart wing!
Does the voltage decrease to the detector as the lights dim? Couldn't this possibly cause problems in the long run to the detector? detector shuts off once voltage drops below threshold. per my understanding, no.
did do that 1 month ago. i also noticed the part numbers on the first post. the question is, if we all need the same kit, are/do the part numbers still current? i am in between sat and ipod/mp3 install... emailed Moni @ nav-tv monday and no response. will call them today.. thanks! Have a look at Cayenne TSB 12/05 9153 Satellite Radio Installation Instructions (I No. QV4 QV8) -- dated Sep 19, 2005.
how about some part numbers?
drex replied to jean's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)apparently the Dension unit for Porsche MOST is about to be released....... group buy is on at rennlist...
ok, after further research.... (for those of us without a power dimming mirror -- useless when you have dark tints installed anyway!).... one can tap into the harness for the domelight for power. there is a connector that attaches to the dome light that provides both switched power and ground; turning on the lights does not affect V1 operation while driving (map light, etc) despite earlier reports. the most lateral wire labelled pin 1 supplies *switched* (+) power to the dome light. (it is the first wire on the end of the connector in the pin 1 position) the fourth wire in the harness from the first supplies ground. in this configuration, the radar detector powers up upon unlocking the door with the key fob, and remains on until after turning the car off and allowing the lights to dim or using the remote to lock the door. there is about a 20sec delay after locking before the device is switched off. :drive:
Confirmed. No autodimming mirror from factory=missing switched power in the wireharness. The harness is only populated with 5 wires (3 for the rain sensor and 2 for the micro mirror mount interior light). No other area of switched power was identified.
