    Yea, didn't work for the 120BT (Sold By and Shipped By Amazon). Tried it 10 times! LOL Plus, I do not think you get the factory warranty since Amazon is not an authorized seller. :confused:

    There is a button to click that let's you chose amazon. Forgot what you click. It should have worked.

    Yea they took it off their list. They had it included about a month ago along with a $100 rebate from pioneer but no more.

    Will do. I got the HU for $1199 after all discounts and rebates (including the mail in one) from Crutchfield. I've seen it for $949 from un-authorized sellers but if I am spending that kind of money I want to keep the manufacturers warranty.

    I got all three dash kits coming too. LOL (one free with the purchase) I'll see which one looks the best to me. Then I'll either return the other two or sell them here.

    What is the by-pass wiring trick. Im guessing that is so I can use the Nav at any time?

    The by-pass is probably a trick so you can view videos while the car is in motion. Most systems that can play DVD's or video files have a "safety" feature that locks the video playback on the main screen while you are driving (which sucks when you have passengers). It will still play video through the video output cables that would be used for a rear monitor(s).

    Metra Black, Metra Silver, Scosche Grey

    Tomorrow I will put them next to the stock one in the truck and take a few more pics. Need to see what they look like with the rest of the interior.

    The metra silver looks the best to me. Is there an inner piece that goes on the inside of the cutout?

    You should have a long green wire with a tap connector on it. That is supposed to go to the parking break sensor wire. When you pull the parking break you ground it.

    A bypass simply means attaching this to another ground instead of the parking break sensor wire. This way the HU thinks the parking break is always engaged, and unlocks all the features in the unit.

    Try the scosche gray. Thats what I used with my pioneer x920bt and it matches the rest of the dash pretty well.

    You have to move a pin or two in the harness. Otherwise once you start moving it will tell you your parking brake lead is hooked up incorrectly. It use the GPS to tell when you are moving and shut of the video. It is definately worth doing. The Nav is seriously limited without it

    That harness has all the RCA plugs on it. I wasn't going to even use that connector since I have no amps or video inputs. Any other way to do it? I was trying to save space behind the radio and not have to squeeze all those cables/wires in behind it.
