New DVD Navigation Install


Recommended Posts

Integrating a non-MOST component onto the MOST bus seems to be the impossible dream. Another forum member installed a Traffic Pro and wired around the external amplifier.

http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...tch+replacement

Have you thought about finding a non-MOST bus Bose amplifier from a MY02 or earlier car? Possibly, the power, speed and reverse gear input signals and the speaker out plugs would be compatable. I'm sure someone on the forum has wiring diagram information that could confirm whether or not this would be an option. Just a thought.

I don't think so....

I have 2 problems to solve before trying to install a new head unit :

1) Keeping my Bose speakers

2) Deleting the MOST thing.

No solution at this time :(

Hi Softail,

I've seen your name plastered all over this tread & there may be some good news for you & others trying to do the install. We're developing a harness that we know will work for the 2005-2007 997/987 Boxster and the 2006-2007 987 Cayman. We also have which will help aid the installation. I having one of the Renntech member verify the wiring schematics to check compatibility (everything will depend on how the models vary from pre-2005 to current models).

I just did an install with your kit and I am very pleased.

Since I bought a kenwood, the facia plate was a little roomy. I bought some leather which I fixed with double sided tape. Not happy with the top left, and bottom right corner, so I will likely re-do it. But i like the look and feel of it.

Hi all,

I refinished my trim plate to match the textured plastic on the dash in my 02 996, It came out great!

Looks as close to factory as I think we can get, Now I wish I could get rid of the "Pioneer" wording on the radio.

I am sorry, I unsure what you are asking, The mounting does not stop the cup holder from working, The cage mounts below, I used double sided tape to mount the trim.

Alex,

The picture you attached on the right hand side (the old radio support bracket), you do not need that piece any longer. Instead, use the new bracket provided in the kit you bought. You may want to take at look at the directions in this thread. PM me or email me at cvt929@yahoo.com

Hi Trieullionaire,

I got your kit today, super fast shipping and from the look at it worth every dollar.

I think your kit will make my AVIC installation this weekend sooooo much easier :clapping:

Great job!

The most efficient way to proceed without rewiring your speakers is to buy an aftermarket amplifier and wire your speakers into the new amp.

Hi, Trieullionnaire,

have you got news for me and 996 with MOST and BOSE owners ?

A few months ago, you were talking about some testings on this case. Did you succeed ?

On your website, I can see kits only for 986 and 997...

Thanks.

There are 2 ways to install an aftermarket navigation for MOST bus that we know of:

1. Rewiring the speakers

2. Replace the amp.

#2 is less time consuming plus you get to have a more powerful amp in the process.

The most efficient way to proceed without rewiring your speakers is to buy an aftermarket amplifier and wire your speakers into the new amp.

Sorry, I don't understand...

And what about a kit for porsche with MOST bus ? Did you give up ?

Yes Tri, thanks for your answer.

But Bose speakers are 2 ohms impedance (insread of 4 ohms with most speakers). Will they work with a non-Bose amp ?

And what do I do with the CD charger ?

Finally, if I buy a new amp, do I just have to connect it to the Avic ?

If yes, do I need the wires harnesses provided with your kit ?

Thanks again.
