tmc replied to michelin's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Hmm, Loren, can you send me the info too? Thanks Tom
tmc replied to Jay's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Paul, I don't believe that's true, sorry. It seems to me the 997 vents are held in with clips only. Tom
...and the price of the group buy would be? I don't know, I'm not a seller. I'm just offering to organize a group buy. To make a case to Nav-TV, we'd need a bunch of people to say they are interested. Then I'll talk to them and figure out the price. Note: I have no financial interest (gain or loss) in this. tmc
Some interest in setting up a group buy. I'd be happy to help. Who is interested?
IMHO, Crutchfield doesn't give a crap about P-cars. Their own configurator barfs and says everything is incompatible.

Ok how to do the install: First, remove the PCM head unit. Second, behind the PCM are two connectors, one is (an ISO connector) for the fiber and one is for the radio power, etc. Nav-TV supplies a male-female wiring harness that is very convenient: you unclip the radio power connector, insert the car end into the Nav-TV harness, and insert the other end back into the PCM. The fiber is not as hard as it seems. You have to carefully pull a small, blue 'T' out of the connector using a small jewelers screw driver. Once done, you have to then remove one of the two fiber cables. Each is held in with a small clip that, if you pry slightly with aforementioned screwdriver, the cable will simply come out of the connector. The Nav-TV Tooki is supplied with a fiber connector populated with one cable. The idea is you disconnect the 'out' side (there are arrows on the connectors) of the PCM fiber, attach it to the Nav-TV connector. Before you can attach the fiber to the NAV-TV connector, you need to disassemble it. On the non-business side (ie, the side where the fiber is connected), along the short side, is a clasp. It's hard to see, but it's there. Use a small-blade screwdriver to release the clasp and get to the "inner" cable connector. Once you get to this, you'll see the blue tab. You will need to remove its blue T as well, and then hook the Nav-TV-supplied cable back into the PCM. So what comes out of the PCM is now routed to the Nav-TV Tooki, and then the Tooki routes it back to the car. Be sure to put all of the blue tabs back and reassemble the inner NAV-TV connector into its shell (it slides in and snaps in place). You're almost done! Hook up the power connector from the NAV-TV's wiring harness to the Nav-TV Tooki control box (easy: just pushes in). Route the microphone cable. I mounted my microphone on the driver's left side by the top of the A pillar. I used their supplied clip and also routed the cord with an old credit card. Then down and across the top of the pedal area (using wire ties to hold it up) and into the back of the center console area, connected ultimately to the phono jack in the Tooki. Mounting: I found I could use some double backed tape and mount the Tooki behind the PCM. There is gobs of room back there. Push it all back in and reverse the procedure to remove the PCM. Turn on the head unit and you should see 'Tooki searching . . ." Set your phone to search for bluetooth and pair with the device, its pin for me was 6888 Then it will transfer your address book. Finally, try making a call! Now you're cooking with gas!
It depends on the phone. Sadly, bluetooth is a physical link-level protocol, not an application-level protocol. There are no standards at the ap level and each manufacturer does it slightly differently. However, I know that Nav-TV is actively working on upgraded firmware. One cool thing is that the firmware is upgradeable via bluetooth. Unlike the dension, you don't have to jank it out or put in a flash stick. Run a program on a bluetooth enabled laptop and badda-bing, badda-boom, you're done.
I'm really happy with this thing. Note to all that it's available from Suncoast Although I paid someone to install it on my 997, I installed it myself on my wife's Cayenne. If people are interested, I'll post a DIY. It's a 30 minute job, tops. (Wish I hadn't paid $220 for the 997's install... :eek: ) tmc
Frank, I'll have to check the exact position, but it was on the bottom row of the driver's side fuse box. Fuse slot 47

I gave up/in and hooked up to the driver's side fuse box for +12V switched. It was not as difficult as I thought and, since I had to run the mic cable that direction anyway, not a big deal. Overall, the CDR-23 and the Parrot are a nice combo. tmc
