Well, my local parts guy brought out a Phatnoise the last time I was there to tempt me. I think I am going to remove the changer and go that route.
Does anyone know if Phatnoise ever fixed the no scan button issue? I know they support the Nav unit.
Well Ted your the only reason I'm considering the Phatnoise. You've mentioned before your satisfaction with it. I think the only difference is I will probably sell my CD changer instead of running dual. I do have my playstation if I ever want to listen to a CD that bad. I'm just running out of space in the back.
I did notice that there is a tool bag available in the UK for the wheel well where the spare tire goes. I think thats the route I will have to take since I have the TV tuner and the playstation there already. Not to mention I still have a 12V PC that I haven't figured out a use for yet. So many ideas so little time.
I've had my Phatbox for almost 2 years, and I absolutely LOVE it! I located it where Ted did, under the tool kit. I also cut out the insulation on the door and used the original cable. No problems so far.
After ripping all 300+ of my CD's at 160kbps, I started over, upgraded the Phatbox to 60GB, and ripped the CD's again using EAC, LAME, and the --alt-preset-standard VBR encoding. I'm well over 400 CD's now, with lots of room to grow. I've tried Audible books, but the audio quality is terrible. If I want to listen to an audio book, I just rip the CD to MP3. Right now I'm listening to "Learn Italian in your Car", for a trip I'm taking this summer.
I finally fixed the missing scan button problem with the Nav+. I bought an RNS-E!
thanks for the reply, I am not alone. The setup guide is very useful to confirm the radio type.
The answer to the question might have taken 3 years, but it will be here 'til eternity!
Most of the information left on here for the CD Navigation Plus appears to lead to dead links. Coupled with the fact that most people have moved on to newer systems in newer cars, means that few people are on the forum that are actively interested in this older system and actively filling it with knowledge.
It would be helpful if a mod could delete all the dead links. I have spent hours clicking on deads links. Where did all that data go?
