Anyone have their FY07 car/SUV with a Navigation system? We are getting ours next week and wanted to know if it's still possible to install a DVD player that taps into the navigation screen. I'll be taking pictures next week if it would help ...<p>Thanks,<br>Cindy

Re: 2007 NAV/DVD ?? (CindyInItaly)

Congrats on your 2007! What model did you buy? XC90, S80, S60?<p>There are a couple ways to get an auxilary video signal to the NAV/RTI screen.<p>- disassamble and hard-wire a S-video/Composite Video adapter to it (you have full control this way and although VERY DANGEROUS you can watch while the vehicle is moving, but please don't do it!<br>or<br>- get ready to buy mgr Ed's multi-A/V-input system, read about it <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=32512&page=12" TARGET="_blank">here</A> (this way the sound and video are controledl buy the Volvo head unit and therefor cuts off the video once you start moving for safety)<p>LTA<br>

Re: 2007 NAV/DVD ?? (LTA)

We bought the only one you didn't mention lol... S40<p>I didn't know with the 2007's being a hard drive for the NAV to be loaded on if it made a difference in being able to use the same connections as before. I guess I'll see when it gets here next week if it has changed or not.<p>Thanks!<p>Cindy

Hmmmm - did I read this correctly. There's no DVD in MY2007 NAV. It's now a Hard Drive instead. Then how does one load up the NAV map data ? Please explain - thanks. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (barrysharp)

The new interface is much more attractive on the '07s. The 3.2 XC90 I drove had NAV and while the map itself looks similar, the interface buttons looks less "Windows 2000" and more "Windows XP"-ish -- smoother buttons, just generally a better GUI -- now the question is can we retro fit the NAV hard drive via the MELBUS cable and remove the DVD based system. I didn't look at the new hard drive setup to see if there was a USB port or if it was a "swappable" type of drive to allow the dealership to make updates. I'm sure we'll get more details in the coming weeks as more '07s hit the lots.<p>

Re: (barrysharp)

Barry,<p>To update / change the map info, you have to take your vehicle to a dealership to have the information downloaded to your harddrive. From what our dealer told us, you must take it in every time you want to switch from US / Europe and there is a fee to go along with the change *ouch*. So for now, we're getting the US map loaded and will have to wait until we get to the US to use it *sigh* <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Cindy
