I got to drive the car only for a few minutes with 11 miles on it. As a bigger guy the MS6 is just enough bigger that I fit better and people can now sit behind me. I bought one with moonroof and my head doesn't touch either. The car is very quick and stock to stock due to AWD will probably beat the SRT-4. My wife and I have plans to test this theory next week... :)
I can't wait for people to start figuring out MBC's and WGA's etc.

One box solution for ya.
AVElectronics Nav switcher
That is assuming you want more than one video input

If you only want one video input I suggest going with
Nav Interface Unit

Regaurdless of which one you get you will still need a way to input the audio, and for that I reccomend either the audiolink or aux mod options. I would highly reccomend getting some ground loop isolaters for the audio and a inline noise filter for the power line. I personally am going with the NavSwitcher and Audiolink setup.

Traded in my 04 SRT-4 for an 06 MS6 yesterday - wife's DD. Bought it fully loaded with Nav and I thought it would be sweet to use that thing for video. Just curious if anybody has done it.

This has nothing to do with this post.. but i like your picture sig. :D I :love: :love: :love: the 91-96 impala/Caprice Body style. I was going to get that instead of a mazda6, but eh..

Used to have a cop car caprice from the city auctions that rocked, until i got rear ended.. Anywhoo.. Congrats on the new car, hope you enjoy

Thanks, that's a beginning. Now I just need to find an aux-input device so I can listen to the audio. I was just hoping to modify the factory DVD player for DVD playback...

I doubt the NAV computer/DVD-ROM drive can be modified to play DVD's. You'd need the proper software/firmware to enable that. You're probably better off installing a compact DVD player.

My personal plan (when the funds become available) is to get the AV Switcher and install an Intel Mac Mini in the glovebox for entertainment purposes. I already have the auxmod and audiolink for my XM radio and iPod.

Thanks for the kind words. I actually sold the car a few months back and I'm buying it back in the next couple of weeks. I need a drag only car since I have the mod fever on everything I own...

I'm going to take my car to a local electronics guru and see what we can come up with.

Did the bodywork, and paint myself. (and a buddy) we only primerd it with a special tint, made at a paint shop, just to see the color.. My buddy did his yellow.. So we had a cop car and a taxi cab :p
