i'm sorry i missed it....but what screen/radio deck is that?
Its an Elcheapo, Xtrons TD601G. I payed $190 shipped from ebay. I have a $1200 retail Pioneer AVIC N3 in my truck but honestly I like the Xtrons better. The Pioneer wont play discs that are only a little scratched, every time I have to unhook the battery I have to re-install the GPS program and all the settings. All the extra functions like GPS, bluetooth, ipod, and DVD needed extra "boxes" during the install. And the picture just isnt as good.

Maybe because the Xtrons is way newer but so far I like it. I cant justify paying another $800 and up for a "Brand name" deck that only I know I paid way too much for. Besides the only woman I know that could tell the difference from an Alpine and a Audiovox is my sister. And shes a true gearhead.

Niice! Never been in an Embraer. Yeah, Work really isnt the right word sometimes. We have 2 C550Bs that I have like 10hrs on but no type rating yet. I'm flying medevacs in sparsely settled northern Alberta.

I'm done the Head gasket and Timing belt repairs. Pulled the car in the shop two weeks ago and got it done in my free time. All the DIY write ups on ths forum helped so much. Got the car in the garage tonight after a shakedown cruise and it runs great still. |No pressure in the coolant system or overheating issues now! I painted the rims Gold right before the engine work. Im happy to say this has turned out a great car
