New Member Saying Hello, & A Couple ?'s

Just wanted to say hello. I picked up my '04 GX470 about 3 weeks ago and have been using it and enjoying since I picked it up, despite having my beater/ work car ('99 elantra). I traded in a 03 bmw M3 for it, which people at work thought was crazy, but I really never had the time to enjoy it and worried about it, everytime I parked it.

Now for the questions:

1) How can I remove the overhead console in front of the sunroof, which holds the vanity lights and sunglass holder? I need to find a 12volt power source to hardwire my rader detector.

2) I've done some searching on this but couldn't find any info. I wanted to purchase a dvd player so my girlfriend can watch a movie while on a trip. Can it be hooked up to the OEM Nav. screen, and if it can be done, any advice would be great. Thanks in advance.

BTW, does anyone have pics of a GX with the factory 17's chromed!

The radar detector is easy. On the back of your rearview mirror is a power plug that supplies switched 12v to the mirror along with a ground. It is easy to hide the wiring to the detector in the plastic covers for the mirror and rain detector. Tuck any excess wires under the front lip of the headliner. A 10 minute install max. Now for that DVD...

hjk3, thanks for the info on the 12v source. I took the overhead console down today, but the 2 power sources I found today were constantly powered. Tomorrow i'll tap off the one you mentioned. Thanks,

Franky
