Default 05-09 GPS Navigation System

So I unfortunately purchased this crap last year on ebay and it's been an expensive paper weight just sitting in my garage.



It does do everything it was designed to do, however the quality of the software is really cheap!!! it's slow but, most importantly, the sound quality is absolute garbage in this thing. Now, it is designed as a plug and play unit so, no cutting or splicing is required for installing it and will not work with a factory 1000w shaker system.

I have the shaker 500 installed on mine so I should be good right?? wrong!!
it doesn't have any sound coming out of the big speakers on both passenger and driver door. I'm so frustrated because I can't seem to get any support from this system, even from the manufacture and I don't want to spend even more than I shouldn't have just to get it to work...

Has anyone else purchased this same unit, and got it to work right??

what's happening is that the door subs aren't wired in for you. on the early cars the front and rear 2-ways are powered by the deck, and the door midbass/subs are powered via the factory amp. You'd need to add a line out converter to them. Sorry you ran into that unfortunate outcome.

they were like that from '05 all the way up through '12.

the listing he linked to shows that he should have received a harness that would connect the piece of junk's subwoofer pre-outs to the factory subwoofer amps. either he didn't receive that or the sub amps aren't getting a turn-on signal.
