For those who went from double DIN to Navi and need the CD adaptor cable, I've got all my parts in and will be able to ship the first lot of them out by Thursday (hopefully).

CD changer adaptor and GPS cable

Also, after never being able to find anyone to sell me the GPS cable, I've made my own. I'm getting 8 satellites, I think one of them is the Satellite of Love.

FWIW, I purchased that TMC, hopefully I'll be able figure it all out and make it work. If so, expect full details.



The silver box in front of the clutch pedal, that is the TMC box. Slapped it in place with electrical tape (nice). The CAN BUS wires are tapped using IDT (scotch locks... junk). I'll be going back and doing the job right with a custom bracket for the box and criming my wires in place.

And here is the pudding of proof my friends:







I'm atta here... off to the drive in movies (guess how I'm going to find it).

Just put this up on the VWNavi.com site, figure it would go nicely here, ... will save space and post it as the URL:

Double DIN pigtail to Navi plug... what goes where... please inform me of any screw ups I made, or any suggestions.

Sleepy time folk....Zzzzzzz

Few quick pics of the TMC mounting bracket and it mounted in place. A friend of mine made the bracket for me. The mounting holes in the TMC are super tiny and I ended up having to tap them out a little to get the screws I had on hand to fit (not a big deal).

It is mounted just to the right of the steering colum, plenty of room there. This worked out a lot better than the electrical tape I was first usig to mount the TMC.

Side note... got me new wheels today:

Got rid of the 15" fuglies for $300 while I was balancing the tires. Today has been a good day.

OK, snapped a pic of where to stuff the pigtail adaptor:



I also finally got around to hooking up the radio antenna today:


This is one of the cables that came with the TMC box I purchased. I cut off the end that would normally plug up to the button style single DIN antenna cable and crimped on the correct fitting for the double DIN lead. The silver plug goes the TMC.


And there is is plugged up to the double DIN antenna plug. So I've now got the radio antenna going though the TMC so if for some reason I end up moving to Europe, my car will be ready. Sorry about the blurry pix.
