Thats exactly what I was looking for a year ago when I did my computer install. I couldn't find anything in the USA most of the similiar devices were still in the Korean market. This was the device I got tired of waiting for to come out http://www.airlinktek.com/english/prod_mg350.htm ....coming soon my a$$ it's been over a year since I first saw it.

So how are you powering it? Where do you have it installed? Did the $270 include the player and hard drive? I want more info!!!! Looking forward to the pictures and detailed write up :schla24:

you would need a hard drive enclosure ,what i did is: I bought the TVnav so i can watch video on my navegation system $250, then this http://www.macpower.com.tw/products/hdd3/tvisto $270 300GB, then you have to rip your movies music etc etc etc .

Where do you get the TVNav from? How does it compare to other AV products?

llajumpvid,

When are you going to put out a system for all of us, that will plug and play? I would definately purchase one from you that is all set up. I know others here on the forum would jump on it as well. :D

I am not too computer savvy , but love the features.

I would love to but I think the after the sale support would kill me:).
What exactly do you want and I'll try to put together something and give you an idea of cost for self installed.

Does anyone know of a navigation software downloadable to a PC (laptop), and will do the same function and act as a navigation system, i.e, turn by turn, points of interest, calculating distances, etc.. :confused:
Delorme makes some. So Does Microsoft. THe delorme is hard to navigate around in at first, but once you get used to it it's fine.

thanks EagerCrow, before I read youe response I was at Bestbuy, and I saw the delorme and purchased it $99.99 plus tax, I did not install it yet, but it looks like its a breeze, you can even talk to it, reminds of (Kit) the night rider. :D , thats really nice it seems it has better functions than the microsoft.
I also have a laptop laying around I will put to use. :cool:

no problem. I think you will be happy. Like I said the layout is hard to get used to, not real user friendly but once you learn it is ok.

I was impressed with the map coverage. I was in BFE (bum fuc! eqypt) wyoming and it had dirt roads that were hardly visable to us while traveling on them.

I recommend this software http://www.inavcorp.com/products/iguidance21.html

it is made by the same company that makes it for the Acuras and Infinities, I use it on my PDA and laptop, and it is great.

Wow, looks big on there. I think you would like the iNav software a lot better. I visited a navagation software forum and everybody agrees that iNav is the way to go. Although I have never tried the Delorme. Where are you located, maybe we can compare navigation software since I have the iNav.
