TVandNav2go or TVonNAV

ANyone have experience with either of these? there seems to be a substantial price difference, but not sure if performance is any different?

Can't comment on TVandNav2go.

I don't think TVonNAV is in business. I know the site is still up, but he has not responded to phone calls or emails in over a year. Beware.

Are you specifically looking for a TV tuner for watching local TV stations? Or are you looking for a way to install a DVD player, backup camera, etc., and display it on the nav screen? There are alternatives. What are you looking to accomplish? We can make some suggestions.

I'm looking to install a video in and audio in plugs to easily plug a mac mini or similar. Don't need to have proper TV (but having a working DVB-T wouldn't hurt). I'm in Germany, and have the professional Navi (MKIV) and no Tv Module, in a X3'2006.

If you know something compatible with the TV that can be plugged in between the nav and the harness, which gives me a video in plus, it would be great.

(then I'll still have the issue of geting the stereo cable, because I have no cable neither in the back, nor in the center console... no cd-changer harness preparation. maybe I can live with the aux adaptor, which I have)

Speak with Tom @ eas and ask about any PAL vs. NTSC compatibility issues.

since it was me asking, I am not really interested in "TV" at all, I jsut want to be able to input different sources into the nav and the other monitors, for example I had a (I think it was aveswitcher, but cant find again) in my ARmada and it allowed for different input sources, and four different ourput one being the nav screen, any thing like that? thanks.
