I have info on the VAIS unit for ipod. have poked around but didn't come up with the Carson sponsor Apple/Lexus approved adapter. can you post or send the link?

Bah, it was actually Sewell Lexus, sorry. Look at the "Coming Soon" link.

Has ANYONE figured out the override for 08's? I've tried the fixes for 06-07 and they aren't working.

If you are referring to the screen touch sequence, the answer is no.

My installer tried the Option 3, but it did not completely work. It allowed nav entry in motion (jumpy) but no phone/dvd.
My primary goal is to allow MP3 / IPOD browsing in motion

Thumbs up 2008 Override IT WORKS

Thanks to Rolling Audio, here's what my car can do:

Navigation entry and POI in motion
Phone Dial in motion
DVD in motion
Mp3 Browsing in motion
Menu/settings in Motion

This company was fast and affordable. No $400 cable to buy.
I watched them during the whole process. They respected my vehicle with careful removal of parts, towels and mats while they were in the car and most important, NOW I CAN USE MY CAR to it's full potential!

PM me or PM Rolling Audio for info (sacramento)

Hey Kingmich,

How much did it cost if you don't mind me asking? I will PM rolling audio, but do you know if maybe they have an affiliation shop on the East Coast who can maybe service my GS?

Sorry if this thread is strictly for discussion of the wire hack listed on the first post but I saw some map disc discussion as well. If it is I'll move this reply.

I have a working Gen5 v7.1 w/the v5.1 loading file. This will allow you to use ALL of the navigation functions (including address input and cell phone inputs) while in motion w/o having to open up the dash or splice any wires. I started a thread in the nav section here.
