My solution for the dash problems is also an iPad and I love it! Had it for about 5 or 6 months now

Get some black chrome paint, black out the housing











Finished product. It look me half of one day and then half of the next, just because I wanted everything to sit overnight to dry, but for basically the same cost, this looks the best. Those are Oracle's plasma halos. I've honestly never undertaken this before, but it really wasn't bad. Worst part was separating the fogs, then getting them back together. They didn't go back together perfectly, but I sealed the crap out of them with black silicone, and the seams are hidden behind the grille, so you never see it anyway. Have had no leaks whatsoever. And they are a complete circle, the break in the ring in the picture is just the grille surround blocking it because of the angle. Can't recommend this route enough.

I've wanted to do this for years. I settled for Raxiom as you can see but really wish I wouldn't have, just too scared to bake the lights and try it myself

I used a heat gun, and there's really nothing to mess up. Like I said, mine didn't go back together perfectly my any means, but it's all hidden. I see dogs for like $100 all the time, just grab those and try it. That way you're not messing up what you have. My thought was IF I miss them up, I'll replace them for $100 haha.

Yeah I'm liking all these tablet setups. I think that's what I want to do. I don't need a booming system because I like to get my car.

I know that Raxiom is the AM brand. If you tell them it ain't worth crap they know to make it better (usually).
We told computer manufactures that some of their stuff stinks, seems to work better now.

Its been known for a long time now that their stuff is poop, but we still see threads come up about numerous quality issues.

I have those to and that's the only product from them that hasn't given me an issue. (Knocks on wood)

I am going to risk it. I like the idea of the Raxiom Navigator and the back-up camera. I like where the display is as well. I am not going to install myself. I will pay some family members to do it ( The Ring Brothers from Spring Green WI) - they know what they are doing and I'm sure if any problem - they can work it out with AM. I won't be getting mine till my convertible comes out of hibernation in the spring. I am confident that it will work even if there a few bumps along the way.

Alot of folks have had very few problems with this particular product. For the price - I don't think you can go wrong and AM stands by it and will do everything to make it work for you. So why not....

A lot of folks have had many complaints about this system on this forum alone, and for what you actually get its way over priced Imo. A $100 tablet install will not only give you voice navigation through your car radio, you can also play movies, install all your music and if you tether it to your phone have complete internet access just to give you an idea.
I hope it doesn't crap out on you or cause you headaches.

Exactly. Doesn't matter who installs it, their quality control sucks.
