Can you give me contact info for your installer ? I would rather get the 9" than the 7", but I can't seem to find it on the net for a decent price.

thanks for the response.

Picture quality is awesome !

Does not shake or even move at all, even over the bumps

total cost with install was $1049 plus tax.

keep in mind I have know this stereo shop for 15 years.. they did work on my first car in high school.

It was ordered directly from Myron Davis. The 7" was still on backorder, but I'm glad because it's worth the extra $$ for the 9". Perfect size for the car.

also came with 2 wireless headphones..

hope the info helps.

I'm in South Fla and if you guys want I'll give you name and address for the stereo shop.

:)

Nice, what kind of DVD player is that and di it come with the holder inside the middle compartment? Look very factory. :fantastic

As for the color, it's not very noticeable that it's off. My neighbor bought a new QX 56 and his monitor is black in a gray interior. Not sure if that's factory or what but it came with it like that in the showroom.

I'll have to check on the dvd player name. don't remember.

The piece in the console they added for $20 so that the player isn't just "hanging open" inside of there... looks a lot better and no visible wires to tangle up with...

Thanks.

9" M&d

Heat I have a business out of Oakland Park, I charge $850 for the 7.8 and $950 for the 9" system installed. My main business is Automobile dealers. I don't understand why he did not use a M&D DVD player. They have a 3 year warranty. I interface all my Armadas and QX56 with the factory system and I do not use the FM mod either. If any of you want the 9" let me know I have access to them. Steel or Willow are the colors. The price he gave you is very good. The car dealers down here are cheap, cheap. I have been in business for over 20 years. Heat, did you buy the vehicle at Weston Nissan? Like I said your buddy gave you a decent price, I just question the manufacturer of the DVD. Glad your happy,

DanDan

Dan Dan,

Thanks for the info.. Obviously whats done is done. system is great so far :)

Can you leave your business name and number or contact info, I'll come by and see ya for future stuff !!

My office is not far from Oakland Park !!!

And yes, I bought the beast from Weston Nissan. My second car purchase there and they gave me a good price... i think :)

As for the dvd compartment, it was a seperate piece that they had and installed... I am wondering about it though because the unit does get a little hot... maybe would be better without it ? Going back by my installer today to ask about that..

Dan Dan, leave your info !!

Question for DanDAn

In the earlier picks the install is great but as he said "the color is a little off". Does Myron & Davis make an exact color match? :confused: I'm a bit of a perfectionist.

I'm not really sure on that one. I didn't get to see both grey colors in hand, or in truck rather....

My stereo guys told me that the other grey (steel) I believe, is much, much lighter, almost the color of aluminium or chrome... The medium grey, pictured above in my truck is pretty close and considering I saved almost $700 from the factory one, I can live with a tiny bit off on the color, besides, when flipped up, you don't even notice :)

Dan Dan,
Good to see a pro weighing in on this issue. I have an 04 LE with the steel interior and the factory DVD setup, but I (correction, my son, as I never get to watch) would like a bigger screen, like the 9" being discussed. I'm a long way from Florida in Austin, Texas, but could you give me a decent price on the 9" monitor kit for the Armada for self-install or shop here to install (I need to check with one of them). I figure the swap-out may not be difficult as I already am set up with the "lesser" screen, and I have a few wiring skills I haven't forgotten from 4 years in the Navy as an electronics technician (although that was a long, long time ago).

AND, if this all works out and someone wants a good deal on a factory monitor, I'd put it up here for sale. Wish I had thought all of this out before buying the factory unit!!

Thanks

I believe you can hook up the video but I think there are some data connections between the factory dvd and the screen as well that you might loose. I would probably change out the dvd as well, for $150 you can get a dvd player that will play dvd+/-R, vcd and add a tv tuner. You'll have to run the video wire but thats really easy to do. Just my $0.02. You can integrate the aftermarket dvd with the wiring from your factory player so you maintain the same functions in terms of audio over the cabin speakers and the rear controls.

Hey DanDan-

Have you done an install on an 04-05 Nissan Quest?

I just picked up my 05 Quest SE last week. I opted not to get the factory DVD system because for $1900 (MSRP of the dual screen DVD system) I felt I could get a much nicer set up...

So I found the M&D ANS190. I called M&D and asked about their AD212 player and the rep said it would have to be FM modulated and that they do not have the correct harness to hook up to the factory head. However, you are saying that it is possible? Also, do you have a suggestion for a DVD receiver with built in digital decoding? Mobile surround in the van would be very cool. :D
