Seen it, heard it, played with it, but never owned one.

Great Nakamichi sound quality. Cool mechanism (really love that eject feature), clean interface.

The downside is that these mechanisms tend to be less reliable (lots of motors, moving parts) and this unit tends to be somewhat installation sensitive. (meaning if not installed properly, it tends to skip)

May want to check out the 56050 by Eclipse also....

would either of these work with nav mute feature if you make that modification you mentioned in the thread for the panasonic in-dash player?

Not sure on the Nak. The main thing is, does it have a mute lead for cell phone or nav? I don't know off hand. Next issue is piping the navi voice to the amp. The Nak's amp unit sits on the back, so in theory you can tap into it. don't remember if access is good though.

The Eclipse does not have an internal amp, and since an outboard is required, you can do it pretty easy like Nestor did, provided you buy a switch box...

I was also interested in the Nakamichi MB-75 indash 6 disk cd changer. What I liked about this unit was the fact that I can replace the existing stock radio with this and have a great radio and cd changer without having to take up under seat space for a seperate changer.

I am waiting for a 02 EXL Navi so I only have a single DIN on the dash. And I am planning on adding a DVD entertainment system later on which most likely will go under the only seat with space (the drivers seat).

I posted this on the Edmunds board and someone raised a good issue in that the Steering Wheel controls for the radio may not work.

Does anyone know if it is possible to install this radio and not lose any functionality such as steering wheel controls for radio or the automatic mute feature when the Navigation provides audible instructions?

Any help here will be appreciated.

Hi, Welcome to Odyclub!

Interfacing with the steering wheel controls fairly straightforward with the PAC or Peripheral Steering Interface...

You can order these online, even from places like Crutchfield.

Start here to learn about navi voice integration..

There are other ways to do this, such as using a separate amplified speaker for the navi voice, etc...

Good Luck!
