Great Lesson. Can I remove my PCM1 CD Drive without affecting any of the other systems? Thought I would use the space for a useful Nav unit.

Great job, thanks !

I have the same question: does the removal of the CD nav unit will affect the the PCM1?

I understand that, of course, the navigation module of the PCM will be useless, but what about the on-board computer?

I mean, the distance calculatore, the tank autonomy and so on???

Does someone know if we can plug a new music CD reader (like the CDR-21) and control it with the PCM1 unit?
