    I'm looking for a used KD-Nx5000. Preferably with blue tooth.

    I can reach and adjust the side mirror on the passenger side of the Roadster. A remote control for a car radio seems redundant redundant.

    Very true: very true:
    However when you are programming the GPS it is much easier and faster to use the remote. I have short arms.

    Some programming functions are easier with the remote.

    No doubt. Program and leave it at home. No room in the car for such niceties. :)

    It is??? I should dig that thing out of the box. I find programming the GPS incredibly annoying.

    I gave up on it a while back and just use my Android phone.

    I have the one that came with the car in a box in the garage in Los Altos, Bay Area.
    Yours for $157?

  9. What are you planning on doing? I know the KD-nx5000/nxd-505 is built on the Windows Automotive Platform...I think the Ford Sync uses the same software.

    You can also get the source code for the KD-NX5000 directly from JVC here....

    GPL/LGPL Source code distribution | JVC

    I am excited to see what you come up with!

    Anyone have a remote they want to sell?

    If you have a remote for the JVC unit that you would like to sell, send me a PM.
