Question about Panasonic Strada CN-NVD905U GPS Receiver
I have the 905U coming in the mail and I want to disable the parking brake thing. I have checked around and everyone says to just put the parking brake sense cable to ground. Has anyone done this for the Strada? Have any luck or issues? Thanks.
Hey thanks guys for all that info...very helpful

Well it is nice to have the Speed sensor. Just find the appropriate wire on the ECU or other guys have spliced it into the speedo wire coming out of their speedometer/gauge area. The unit will actually give you your speed when in the install status screen. Yes you can just ground the parking break wire on a screw in a metal area and it will read it as being on all the time. As for the illumination I hooked it directly into the illumination wire that went into my stock radio and it works fine. The reverse I found on the passenger side under the door sill. Just found the right wire and tested it with a voltmeter to double check and it's perfect. I honestly don't suggest grounding the parking break wire because it's bad enough fiddling with the GPS or iPod controls while your driving. If you really want your passengers to enjoy movies install a visor monitor (although the significant other will not like the lack of mirror) or in the headrest. This stuff isn't all that hard.

The panasonic strada is one of the easiest double din navi units to bypass. just ground the parking brake sensor and your done! it doest matter if your speed sense or reverse wire is hook up.

I didn't hook up the speed sensor or reverse wire and just grounded the parking brake wire to the system ground.
