I haven't heard anything negative about CoastalTech, but I bought my XM Satellite Radio that fully integrates into the multi-funtion display to show 3 screens of Satellite pre-set channels and name of tune/artist, etc. from Jon August, who has several posts here. It is an outstanding kit, including an instructional DVD to see exactly how to install it.edude said:Hello,
Has anyone purchased any of the mods from CoastalEtech.com? I was considering the XMRadio feature where you can use the built-in display.
Any thoughts? Problems? Recomendations?
I guess the human body acclimates to a region, and any extreme change is ruinous. In Queretaro, on the high central plateau of Mexico, I arrived at class one day in shorts and short sleeves feeling rather warm. A classmate arrived in a full sweatsuit and shivering. She was born and raised on the coast of Chiapas and had never in her life experienced temperatures as cold as the lower 70's!melgish said:As for the humitidy... A few years ago I had to spend some time in Bartlesville Ok in mid December.
All I remember from the trip is that my nose was so dry it bled daily. I was glad to get back here, where I can breath in my 8 glasses of water a day
So, when are you going to post the details? Is this the same kit that Toyota says is only for the Solara?melgish said:I'll post more details later, but yesterday Dave over at Coastal installed my XM Radio, EV mode switch and auto door lock.
The short answer is everything works great. After going without XM for nearly two weeks, it's good to hear the sounds of Lucy, Fred, and Ethel again
Thanks Dave, for a job well done!
Sorry, I've been busy with hurricanes Here you go!romad said:So, when are you going to post the details?
3 miles is our best guess at the distance ... it was in slow, but steadily moving traffic on I-95 south, roughly level. I started with 7 bars of green--which is why I tried it. The last time I looked at the SOC before our speed topped 34 and the ICE came on, it had 3 bars.Daniel said:Would you describe the driving conditions where you went 3 miles in EV
Dont you get the little green car symbol in the display near the speedo?melgish said:At first, I was annoyed that there was no feedback to indicate that EV mode was activated (I have trouble counting to 2 seconds) but now I know if I move the MFD to the consumption screen first, it will flip back to the energy screen when it turns on.
No. the CoastalTech mod does not enable the light. I suspect that this would require cutting of wires, or make installation more difficult than it is worth.Victor said:Dont you get the little green car symbol in the display near the speedo?
