I don't get it. There are so many things being mentioned here as to how to do this, that it's confusing. Can someone please tell me how you get on this list to wait on the programmer, and what it costs? Just put the precise link and what the actual cost is. I have two G8s that are eagerly awaiting, and will sign up ASAP.

You order from my website. The current wait is actually pretty decent I'm starting to fill the last of the previous batch now after replacing both units; DOH!

2008-2009.5 G8 Input While Moving (IWM/VIM) Programming
Price: $99.99

Ask a question about this product

Our input while moving programming allows your stock G8 headunit to utilize the rear auxiliary input (located on the right side of the radio housing) without the stock programming interrupting the feed as it normally would. This allows the stock headunit to double as a navigation unit or whatever else you would like to feed it. This type of programming is also called Video In Motion" or "VIM" commonly as well.

This is a ship in service for your stock radio (which is very easy to remove) in which we reprogram the unit and ship it back to you. No setup (or anything else) is necessary after the programming just plug it in and go.

We have also added new features such as radio startup logo changes as well as background display color changes as well. Please select those options accordingly.

PLEASE NOTE:THIS SERVICE IS FOR THE RADIO MODULE NOT THE FACEPLATE! YOU ONLY NEED TO SHIP THE RADIO MODULE NOW UNLESS YOU ARE GETTING XM RETROFIT PROGRAMMING ON A 2008 RADIO.

WAMS is now also proud to offer our new remote programmer rental, this allows end users or a group of users to program their G8 with a simple plug and play interface that programs the radio in the vehicle. The rental fee is $50 (for programming and setup) plus a $200 refundable deposit.

PLEASE NOTE: The Remote Loader System is now available for both IWM programming as well as color changes and logo changes!

Just placed my order on your site, Chris. Thanks.

Now I just have to figure out this cable stuff. I want to go from the rear aux to micro HDMI. A link that would help me accomplish this would be greatly appreciated.

Finally got the cables made and all hooked up. Works like a champ in park, then disappears after hitting 3 mph, as expected. Can't wait to get the programmer now. Thanks to djuniah for helping me figure it out. This board is awesome for DIY info!

I have an iPhone 5 with the Digital AV, HDMI connector. Can some provide me the info I need to make the Connectors I will need to make this work? Thank you.

If I am right I will first need to make or buy the connector for the back of the unit, and then I will also need a HDMI to component converter of some kind. Of course i will then need to get the teh waiting list for the VIM cable. I just want to see the Audio and Video working before I commit to joining the list.

I was the same way, but you can trust that it will work just fine. I've actually been on the VIM flash wait list for about two weeks, even though I just now got everything setup. You are correct about the converter from HDMI to composite. Here's the one I went with:

Amazon Amazon

There are others out there, just search and you'll eventually find one you like.

Pakitullanc - I actually did both for the cables. I ordered the Tyco samples, but since I didn't know how long it would take, I got impatient and just made the cables myself. The process posted by djuniah works perfectly. The part that was the most confusing for me, that isn't clear from all the posts, is that just because the video input has 18 pins, doesn't mean you need an 18 pin plug. You only need a plug that has enough connectors to cover the required pins. Same for the audio. As it turns out, I received the Tyco samples in only a few days, but ended up just going with the cables I made. IMO, making the cables yourself is just as easy as fooling around with the Tyco parts.

I ordered my Tyco stuff on 1/31. I have everything else ready to go.
