Thanks to everyone who helped me out during the process of the install. This thing is awesome and I'm still learning all it's tricks. And yes...the first trick I learned was to change the illumination to yellow. Thanks again.
The invoice I paid for the Avic-d3, wiring harness and mounting kit was about $853. I am sure others paid less because I got nailed with the CA state tax. I did pay a little less though because I went and picked it up
The price is good considering Best Buy sells them for 999.99 !
