    The nav works good, I would say its comparable to the factory navigation I have in my maxima. No complaints about the radio quality either. My steering wheel controls work as they should. However you will have to take some time to play with the settings to get it set up the way you like. I paid 436.00 for mine off of ebay.

    Hi, first post! Just joined after seeing srad2drag's pics. How are you liking that unit now that you've had it for a while? It looks like exactly what I'd like to put in my '09 5. I have a few questions.

    What happens to the functionality of the stock aux in port?
    Is it a 6 disc changer? I notice the pics on ebay say "Virtual" 6 disc.
    Does your stock LCD screen (above unit) still function and to what extent?

    Anything you could say would be a great help. Your install looks great! Thanks...

    Hello, I'm still loving my deck like hell.Lol..I'm unsure if my factory radio had a aux port since my car is a 06. The radio has a aux port to utilize different devices though. The virtual disk means shuffling through songs and albums on a mp3 player or Ipod.

    As for my stock LCD screen, it still displays ambient temperature and climate control temps and the time.

    I've mentioned before the only quirk I have is my radio station presets dont cycle through when I push the up arrow on the steering wheel. The radio hits the next staion is succession. Like 97.1,97.2. The other thing is when I set up my night time map view colors to be used the radio doesnt do it automatically. I have to manually do it. The screen still dims when I turn on my lights, its just I have a different night time map profile for night use and daytime use. I just added a satellite radio tuner and its working great. I'm pleased with the set up..

    I am looking at a similar SatNav off ebay that Srad2drag has fitted. My Mazda 5 has the mobile phone pack installed and also has a telephone button on the steering wheel to operate it. Currently, all is working fine.

    If I replace the existing 6 CD player with a SatNav off ebay, what will happen to the existing mobile phone functionality ? Is it linked to the original CD player or not?

    What would the telephone button on the steering button actually control ? Would it operate the ebay SatNav or still the original phone ?

    Many thanks !

    Vasy how is the generic deck holding up?
    Is the sound as good or better than the factory deck?
    Also what nav software is it using?

    So far works well for my needs. Sound works but as my mom said, a bear stepped onto my ears when I was young , I don't pick up well the sound difference to comment.
    To me sounds at least as good as stock or at least I can't tell, nor can my wife.
    It uses iGo GPS software. I really like it and had no issues with it.
    They now sell an upgraded version of this unit for $10 extra, it has a faster CPU and 3 zone instead of two plus build-in 4 gig memory. I'd probably go with that unit at this time.

    Vasy, that's the unit I intend to install in a couple months. The existing radio seems so antiquated for a new car.

    That's really not horrible for a decent head unit.
