Thanks. Do apps like netflix and youtube work? I think there were issues with those using the ipod connectors. I only want it if netflix works since i use that pretty often

Youtube definitely does. I don't use netflix so i'm not sure on that one. I know that the HBO app blocks it, however that same content is also in Comcast's streaming app and it doesnt block it.

No love for New England? I gotta post about this in the regional section maybe could get enough people to make it worthwhile to send out the cable flash...this is worth every penny

I think there is a pretty long wait for the cable so you wouldnt need to meet up until the cable is delivered. Would just need the $ and your vin i think when i order.

Pakitullanc, it mirrors the phone. Whatever is on the phone's screen will be on the car's screen. However you need to be sure that your phone has some kind of video output (not all do)

My phone does have "hot spot" feature active, thus any WiFi device can work of it. Any way to make the head unit WiFi with this unlock

I don't think you really understand what this does. The VIM mod simply allows you to display video on the in-dash screen. It's like the plugs on the back of your TV. It has nothing to do with wifi or anything like that.

EDIT: Also, i just looked up that phone model and it doesnt appear to have any kind of video output, so you might not be able to use that.

Cool, I really appreciate your insight man. In April I switching to Verizon and possibly to Samsung Note 2, maybe it will have the feature. The note 2 can out today. I may still go ahead a unlock because I know I definitely switching from AT&T to Verizon in April.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that effective with the open of business next Saturday there will be a $25 increase on all RENTAL IWM programming. Ship in pricing will remain unchanged for the time being.

I appreciate your continued support (I really do!) but unfortunately this product continues to eat far to much of my already severely limited time The good news is this is still less than HALF of the cost of the next closest competitor (and has more options)

What is the price of the VIM after core refund?

Website looks like it says $200? Seems awfully expensive just to flash a chip.

$200 deposit
$?? to ship the loader to us
$?? To ship the cable back to Chris with insurance.
Note the different colors accented above to denote "per VIN" options as above. Basic VIM/IWM flash is only $100 not including core charges or fees.

Core charges are refundable after loader is received back in proper condition in a timely manner, in the original packaging that it was sent to you in.

Noooo of course not! Just applies for new orders placed when we reopen AKA the next batch. Hoping to have the last batch completely done this week!
