The '05 models are actually very simple if you have the Nav and DVD packages. The '08 and newer already have the feed from the DVD player being sent to the Nav screen, however, you can't watch on the Nav screen unless the E-Brake is on, and the vehicle is in a stationary position.Alegre323 wrote:can this work on a 05 QX56?

I previously owned an '04 QX56, and all I had to purchase was the switch unit from TV and Nav 2 Go and installed that, with a switch from Radio Shack (to flip the Nav screen from Nav to DVD) and then you can watch DVD's on the rear and front Nav screen, even while you are cruising down the interstate, of course that is for the passenger in the passenger seat, not the driver!
looks good... def. going to order itTimmbo wrote:http://www.tvandnav2go.com/in-car-dvd.html
I actually had the unit where you cut your own wires, NOT the plug & play model. I like this one because it allows you to make the connection underneath your passenger seat where the Nav DVD rom drive is located. That is much easier than trying to rip your dash apart to get to the back of the Nav Screen. The one thing people had an issue with is when you watch a DVD, you would still see the HVAC display on the bottom portion of the screen while you were watching the movie, but by making the connection at the back of the Nav DVD rom drive, all you have to to is hit the "Route" button, and all you will then see on the screen is the movie you are watching......the cool thing is if you raise the temp or change the vent or something, it shows up for a few seconds, and then disappears again. I was very happy the the TV and Nav 2 Go unit.
I don't quite understand it all myself, but I know it works, and that is really all that matters. The QX56 and the Armada are the same for doing this mod.GrillAg98 wrote:This is a pretty sweet mod. How does it differ from the QX56 wiring, etc? Did you just clip the speedsense and e-brake? I guess I'm not getting how the relay, pin 82 and 80 and switch all tie together. Forgive my ignorance.
Since you're close to me, have you figured this out? I'd love for my wife to be able to watch DVd's up front so leave be quiet and leave me the hell alone while I'm drivingBmoreQX56 wrote:Could you elaborate more on your comment regarding the cutting of the wires? Where do you cut them? How much length do you need to leave? How do you suggest to ground them?
