I have the Metra Turbo2 and have no problems with it yet..

People have suggested to change out the control ***** from the OEM since the new ones fell off easy and didn't light up properly.

Maybe that would fix your problem?

Yeah the OP is, but Fenix I believe was just talking about the metra replacement, which has the same complaints..

The removal process is described in the link mentioned earlier, but the NAV info is not.

yea i was just complaining, it just isnt up to par with the rest of the stuff i have, its all quality except for that one piece. But i was wondering would it be possible to use the stereo with the nav, take out that screen and put in a dbl din?

I haven't looked, but I also haven't seen a Double DIN dash kit for the 7th gen.

I believe that's why the guys are custom building their kits with bondo/etc.

Interested in doing the mod? I'll have a full walkthrough available VERY soon. I *JUST* ordered the connectors to hook it all up this week. Its taken me over 2 months to find them - NO ONE seems to have this info published... ANYWHERE!.... at least except for my website. :-)

You will see on my latest post the manufacturers who make the connectors if you are interested in making a wire harness yourself, or I will soon offer them via my website and ebay... for a MUCh better price than what is typically charged on ebay (plus mine will use the actual connectors - not pigtails, not modified headers, etc) Anyway... enough marketing for one night... good luck in attempting this - hopefully my website will shed a little light into how much work and research I've done so far - soon it will be summerized in an easy how-to DIY... yadda yaddda...
