A few weeks ago, Brian came to me with a plan for upgrading our video display. He told me that we needed a better way to demonstrate the new navigation systems that Eclipse and JVC have come out with. Our old display just didn’t cut it anymore.
Brian had a very clear plan of what he wanted to do. I gave him the OK and he got to work. He started by using the old display panel as a template. He used some old head unit install kit parts to form the openings for the decks. When the angles were just right, the panel was wrapped with a fiberglass cloth.
Body filler was used to fill in the imperfections and the panel was sanded to a smooth finish. It was then wrapped in a black fabric that contrasted well with the red cabinet that it was installed into.
Yesterday, Bob wired up the new navigation and video units. An Eclipse AVN6610 BT was installed in the top location. This unit has incredible navigation capabilities along with Bluetooth handsfree, Sirius and Ipod integration. It has dual DVD drives so that you can watch a movie and use the navigation at the same time.
Below that is a spot for the AVN5510 (which we will have in stock soon). This unit is essentially the same as the 6610 except that it has a single DVD drive.
In the single DIN spot is the all new JVC KD-NX5000. This unit has incredible value. It has Sirius, IPOD and Bluetooth capability. A 40gig hard drive is built in to store your music and house all of the map data for the navigation. the 3.5 inch monitor is even big enough to watch a movie.
We also now have overhead consoles from Myron and Davis and from Rosen. These are, hands down, the very best quality overheads that are made.
Stop in soon to see out new display and let Brian or Bob show you how affordable and useful Navigation and video can be.
