Yes, the GEX-P7000TV is a better solution, but it requires you also connect a $549 or $599 6.5" Pioneer AVD-W6000 or AVD-W6010 monitor to the GEX unit as well to make all functions work properly. The AVD-W6000 has a ceiling and headrest mounting kit and AVD-W6010 comes with detachable mounting base that people have used for back of center console. The GEX is a better unit for the following reasons: built-in TV tuner, wireless remote control (no need to mount dash switch, simply place an IR eye on/or in the dash behind smoked plastic [like the clock]), built-in FM modulator, 2 source A/V inputs and a rear A/V output that is connected to the AVD-W60xx monitor. With this setup your rear monitor can display a different source than what is on the navi display, all controlled by the remote control and navi display. Using the control panel on the AVD-W60xx monitor you can also have it display the navi screen map! Kids like this for whatever reason... I don't give out the modification directions for the GEX-P7000TV, but can be talked into selling themor doing the modifications for you w/parts and hook-up instructions. If buying a GEX-P7000TV don't forget to also buy the Pioneer AN-G3 mobile TV antenna and if going with AVD-W6000 monitor a Pioneer CD-30RGB cable and mount. All together it's about a $1K mod, but well worth it.TC said:Last time I was looking through your post you mentioned that you thought that the GEX-P7000 was a better unit to use for this modification. Is that still your thinking? I think that the modifications instructions that I saw were for the AVC-RGB1. Do you have a link to detailed instructions for the GEX.. unit? It sounds like it is not necessary to to go behind the dash to make this mod -- Just access the wires where they go into the DVD unit. Is that true? Have you found connectors that can be used for a wiring harness or do you have to clip/splice wires? If these questions have been answered in some other forum, I'd appreciate the link. If anyone else reading this has done this mod, could you post picks? Sorry for all the questions -- I'm very excited about this mod.
I like the idea of the backup camera. Which unit are you using for the backup sensor and where did you get it?
