    Can a backup camera be wired into factory GPS ?

    They cost $325 brand new. Also apparently you no longer have to modify the nav unit on the Explorer's. They make them plug and play now. So it wouldnt be worth me selling it. I will hold on to it and mayby use it in a future car.

    Can a backup camera be wired into factory GPS ?

    Im not sure. I will have to check first how much they go for new because the price probably came down since i bought it in 06. I paid like $500-$600 for it back then. Not including the back-up camera. I will check with the manufacturer and base my price of that. Here is the link for the unit...

    K & N cold air intake & Maganflow exhaust

    I had a KKM intake and a Magnaflow exhaust on my 06. Never had a problem with a warranty issue. In fact the service manger would compliment me on the sound.

    Wider tires on Ex?

    It's pretty good in the rain but could be a little better. Not even close to rubbing. In fact there looks to be enough room to go one size bigger.

    Problem or design flaw with auto climate control ?

    Yeah i think its a design flaw. My 06 does the same thing. It seems like if the cabin temp goes above the set temp then it automatically blows cooler air to cool it off.

    I just cut out the stock resonator and muffler, welded in a magnaflow Muffler. Sorry I don’t know which one. My exhaust guy supplied it. Then just cut about 12 inches off the end and welded a new tip on. I posted some pics in this post...

    Fuel Economy 220 miles on tank??

    Your mileage is definitely low. I average 300 miles to the tank and I drive at least 70% of the time in the city. Cruising on the highway I easily get 400+ to the tank.

    i dont remember exactly but it's very pricey. It was around $500-600. Plus you have to have the Nav unit modified to accept the inputs from the interface.

    Mobile Ease / Sync

    I have the Mobile Ease installed in my X. I love it. I bought it on ebay and it was alot cheaper then the dealer’s price. I like how it integrates with the stock radio. It automatically mutes the sound, controls the volume with the steering wheel controls, and even pauses the CD & DVD player if...
