Cheers

What about purchasing Dynavin from Umnitza? Has anybody done this? They offer Aus maps and everything

Have now fitted the Dynavin unit from In car media, awsome communication, quality is up there, no alternator noise, and back up service is amazing. (No i don't work for them), dont mess with the cheap rubbish, Dynavin operates faster and easier, Nav is superior, picture is better, sound is good. Wish I had done this earlier. All my steering wheel controls and On Board Computer work.

How did you get rid of the alternator noise? Is that only heard when using iPod?

How did you get the steering wheel controls to work? Did you use a FAKRA cable? Does this also enable radio reception? I currently have a Dynavin but it doesn't receive radio and my steering wheel buttons don't work. Seems this mysterious FAKRA cable is the missing link I need to enable these two items. Would any car stereo shop be able to source and fit this for me?

The alternator noise was only in the ebay $460 stereo not the dynavin. I have not noticed any noise through the ipod connection. An Incarmedia technician fixed it with one wire, he mentioned the FARKA cable but my car did not need it being a 2001 model. He is a great bloke, his deatails are on the Dynavin web sight, I wont post them here. My OBC and steering wheel controls now both work. Some cars have connections in the rear and need that cable. My car had a factory BMW Alpine unit with 2 small plugs at the front.
