So since everyone will be receiving their unit very soon, and i've taken it upon myself to create a new thread to make it easier for anyone that is interested in this unit, and is to lazy/has no time/no patience to read through all 80+ pages found here.

Status Update - 12/28/07 3:55pm EST

3. MZDASPD6 (Touchscreen Overlay)

Not Sure
1.forrestang - (constantly having issues working on replacement)

FAQ:
- Mazda6club price for unit = $566.74USD shipped to anywhere in the USA, and Canada pm me if outside North America...

- 7 inch no name brand TOUCHSCREEN motorized unit. Complete plug n play with factory Mazda6 headunits (Both Bose and non-Bose? - will confirm later). This is a VGA unit so a carputer must be created. Native Resolution for the screen is 800 x 600

*For more on carputer information and for powering of your carputer please visist MP3Car.com.













*for the harness make sure you properly ground the green wire as well. I simply just wrapped it around one of the bolts on behind the headunit, and that was a disaster! I got so much feedback/static and crackling through my speakers...so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you ground the green wire properly. I used a simple spade connector found at any local radioshack

VIDEO OF HOLY GRAIL
Featured in the video:
Carputer = HP ZT3340us Laptop
FrontEnd = RoadRunner of course!
Skin = iPhone (most stable Flash based skin to date IMO)
GPS = iGuidance 3.0
GPS Rec.= BU 353
*all software, and gps receiver can be found by searching mp3car.com

My thoughts:
Unit arrived extremely quickly. Once she sent me tracking info it was already at my door before it was processed on the DHL website. (about 3 days from China to your door) Also remember to us DHL, as many before you have used UPS and received a crack screen.

This unit is exactly what has been promised by Jessica. The quality is great, the lid is 96% an exact match of your interior dash, and the motorized unit opens/closes flawlessly. The unit will auto shut down/close when the key is out and the car is turned off after 5-10 seconds, and it does come with a remote as well. The screen has its own independent power, so you can still run your carpc and close the screen. It has a VGA input for your carputer, and 3 RCA compositive video inputs for whatever. The screen also has 2 RCA outputs for maybe what seems to be the next project head rest monitors! So stay tuned, we've only yet to begin receiving the few big shipment of test units, and this is the thread to check out the reviews.

NOTE: aviator79 has stated that his unit would not close tightly, but upon connecting a vga cable, it would close securely. So before you decide to take it apart make sure you try all routes first before disassembling/repairing the unit.

Special thanks to Number6 wherever you are, and of course MazdaSpain who organized everyone and worked his magic to get Jessica to create this specially customized unit for our 6's.

If you are interested in this unit, I am responsible for North American sales of this unit for Jessica's company. You can now purchase through me by directly sending me the money through PayPal. She still is very comfortable with Western Union, but for those of you that would rather feel comfortable having me be the trusted middle man, you can pm me through here with your name, and location if outside the US so that i can approximate how much it will cost to either ship from my NJ location or Jessica's China location. The price for the unit if sent through paypal will be $566.74USD which includes S&H.

Also just as a heads up the price has been increased on the auction list because of paypal, and eBay fees. In the end i'm making a little over $12 to cover the cost of shipping the unit to you in the states after eBay, and paypal take their commission....

I was also not able to be present when it arrived- but the unit was packed very well- essentially the retail box, within another cardboard box- no damage to either.

Display assembly was shrink wapped and upon removing the shrick wrap it looks great!

I do not have power to the unit so will not be able to see it opened up...

The box that was in a box


What the packaging was like- it was shrink wrapped but I could not help myself...



A blurry image of the grain- looks very close to the original, if not the same.


What was in the box- there was also a USB cable and a stylus that I missed.


The front


The back


cheers,
Peter
