I love this new HU... Got it from Crutchfield thanks to Scottsbro (Steve). You can add on XM, Nav, etc..... I opted for the Kenwood B/U camera and Ipod adapter... <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />



I just need new speakers, amp, and subs now.. Touch screen DVD rocks! Thanks Steve............. I think........ <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/009.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt009' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />



Stock HU...











Almost done..







Wait, the aftermarket Bezel dont quite take the E-flasher button.. It wont seat.. I gotta improvise!



Kept popping out..











So, I used some epoxy and some zip tie pieces as spacers and made it work... Good to go now.. Freakin awesome.... Now for Nav, XM, AMP, sub(s), and new speakers.. Sounds great now but just wait!















B/U Camera....... Should make hitchin up my boat / TT a breeze <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />















Clip from one of my top 10 movies of all time.... <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/001.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt017' />

Looks good krh2. I hope to get a similar setup at some point.



Is your double din kit a Scosche or Metra? I know it is not the Titan XE faceplate (68260-7S001) because it has two dimple-like depressions on the lower right side instead of the knock-outs that your faceplate shows.

^^^ Scosche........... Though like I said the retaining tap for the E-flasher button was too shallow so I had to improvise.. Many others have commented on this on the Crutchfield forums thus had to apply my skills.. lol..... Turned out quite well IMO... Oh, AM reception is much better now too. I can get a lot of LA stations I could not get in the past. Hello.......... Dodger broadcasts without having to use my XM... I am VERY happy with it.. Now I want the Kenwood Nav ($200)....... Speakers etc.. BTW, I put a DDX-512 in our Frontier. Pretty much the same HU........ Her's is the same as mine though I didnt add a B/U camera as the little guy is much easier to park, etc........... <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/002.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt002' />
