You might not ever need to. If it fails, it's nice not to have to disassemble the dash. I've had a connector come lose a couple of times and I needed to re-secure it. Also, VaisTech can do bios...

As someone else mentioned, you need to also do the parking brake wire to watch DVDs.

However, if it doesn't allow you to use the nav system with the switch in the off position, you must have...

You can't just leave the switch off; the nav system will figure out that you're moving and block access to things again. So, you have to be able to turn it off and on.

You can't use iTunes to burn a CD with CD names. I think iTunes does this to make it more difficult to burn-and-rerip, thus bypassing their DRM security.

You can use third-party software like...

I have a Garmin C550 that I use with my Volvo, but I highly recommend getting the Lexus nav. If nothing else, it's worth it just for the touchscreen and backup camera. Plus, the interior looks much...

Doesn't read like a kick at Lexus to me. He's saying that the Lincoln should aspire to be like a Lexus.

Here's the link to the XM part with install instructions. It goes into the trunk, so you don't have to pull the dash apart like you do for Sirius. Here's the part with install instructions:

My nav hack

In a five-hour marathon I installed a VaisTech iPod unit, the Lexus ES330 Sirius unit, and a manual nav hack switch.

I bought an SPST rocker switch from radio shack and installed it where the...

Has anyone seen the brown mats with the cashmere interior? I'm ordering a set and wondering if they match better than the grey. The grey doesn't look bad at all, because it seems to match the center...

Our salesman told us that it was federal law that required them to disable functionality. Is he full of BS?

Perhaps when he said, "the law", he meant, "lawyers".

Yeah, the big car magazines keep the brake pressed and rev the engine up. Consumer Reports is an exception, because they release the brake and then step on the gas.

The backup camera is standard with the nav. You can get the nav with the non-ML stereo (that's what I have). The parking sensor IS an option, though.
