H&S Display

Is there any way that the tuner screen can be input to the factory navigation through an auxiliary switch? I would like to basically use the factory nav as a monitor screen being able to switch back and forth by a switch. For example the screen works how it came from the factory, then with the flip of a switch I see all the parameters displayed by the minimax.

On a similar note, I've been begging a friend of mine to lobby Kenwood for native interoperability with aftermarket tuners (he's a rep for them). Obviously there's far more to making this a reality, but their iDatalink product will be a step in the right direction, at least for sensor monitoring when they decide to enable it. This doesn't help those with the factory nav stuff, but would be very compelling to the performance crowd who opt for aftermarket nav.

Does the H&S have a video output? If the factory nav has a corresponding input, you're in luck.

I'm not sure, I would have to look at everything but I just think its a cool idea and surprised it hasn't been given much thought.

My buddy did say that Kenwood had looked at tuner integration as a possibility. From the perspective of a company building tuners, you would think that they'd latch onto the idea, principally because they would be more of a software company, not a hardware and software company. The way I understand it, the larger aftermarket manufacturers are starting to see 12v applications as a low revenue generating nuisance. The auto manufacturers have closed the tech gap in the vehicles being offered these days, cutting into the aftermarket bottom line.

To me, integrating tuners would be a great idea and worthwhile investment, since there's no chance a factory nav unit would support this interface. The problem is that there may not be a large enough market to support the cost of such an endeavor from an aftermarket manufacturers POV.

Another cool option would be a split screen iPad app. Nav on one side, tuner settings and PIDs on the other. It would probably be the lower cost option as well.

Well I have a few ipads laying around lol but I don't like the look. I like a clean look and ipads in the dash don't look right to me.
