New HU for the truck
#1
Kenwood DDX-512.... Touch screen DVD.. Add ons if you want them... Navigation, Xm, BU camera, Ipod adapter... We went with just the ipod adapter for now. Love this unit.. Now need new speakers. Oh, Tc3Driver helped with the install. You may remember him as a former moderator on club frontier and titan spot. Install was cake compared to the new HU I put in my Titan..

Dash torn apart.......

Shrek! Lmao... Big Grin



Footnote: You are instructed to ground this to your parking brake so you can only watch videos when engaged.... I did somthing different so we could watch video while driving... Not legal and I dont recommend it but that is what I did.. AngelWink

When I am not moving, I am not in my truck. If I were to install a DVD player and connect it to the P-Brake, it would never get used.

the thing you have to do to bypass the parking brake is to just ground that wire to anything and it will work dont pay to have it done its all bs

Correct. Works for Kenwoods but I have heard Pioneer, etc, it is much more difficult.

nah just put in an avic u310bt in mine a few months ago and had to ground it to one of the bolts behind the head unit....at first i tried to connect it to the ground coming off of the head unit directly but for some reason it didnt work so i just went with the bolt

Looks good. I like the interface colors on the DDX512 more than on the one I have. I have the DDX-7019 and the interface colors are a blue scheme but some of the buttons look like they were designed by a 10 year old.

I just installed a avic x930bt pioneer dvd/gps into my frontier, and i grounded the parking brake, mute, and ground wires together. I used the metra wire harness to plug into the factory plug and the metra dash kit. I will take a picture soon and post it on here on the next day or 2. installing is easy on this truck compared to others i have installed on.
