Default How can I get the GPS screen of a 2007 Acura TL S to also play DVDs and recieve satellite

signals to watch TV? I heard that there's some kind of chip that I can buy so that I could have everything on just the built-in navigation screen. I would like to get this done to my sister's car before Christmas. I would appreciate any information that might help me get this.

Just another urban legend.

Actually, it isn't an urban legend.A good number of people have been able to successfully modify their Acura TL navigation systems to play DVDs, route to a car PC, or connect with a slingbox to receive satellite TV (since a true satellite receiver is large and expensive)A good place to start: acurazine!(look at source)good luck!I will say though, the Acura TL's navigation system and electronics are very complex and wires are routed from front to back. With the '07, it's gotten even more complex, with the rear view camera and XM navtraffic receiver!

I thought you would need a flat sattilite dish on your car like some people have from Direct TV on their Excursions and Suburbans, but WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT WHILE DRIVING? People that have these are for the back seat passengers... THAT IS RECKLESS!!!!!
