Default Product available to bypass safety lockout on navigation

Installed the Beat-Sonic TVK-54 & gained full access to control of my mp3 folders, navigation, bluetooth phone & ability to watch video while in motion.
Very easy to install harness which plugs in between car harness & radio.

( See link below for part:
https://www.beatsonicusa.com/nav-dvd...ss-module.html )

Any question talk to Eric Kwon from Beat-Sonic. He answered any question I threw at him & got right back to me if he felt he didn't have the answer.


fyi: Was debating on grounding p. brake wire but didn't want to void warranty.

Not sure but it sounds like a similar approach to this http://www.scoobymods.com/2010-groun...av-t12780.html I believe someone else mentioned it worked on their 2011. Link no longer works.

Yes that is def. an option but preferred a simple plug & play method that would not bring up any warranty issues.
Also this can be had on the (relatively) cheap @ under 100.00.

I've had the TVK harness installed now for the last couple weeks & it works great.

Did you take any pictures? If not, could you describe it?

The picture on their product page shows a remote pod with a switch, but nothing else. Does the product include a short harness that you insert between the car's 24-pin navi harness and the socket on the back of the HU? If so, did you notice whether it passes through all 24 pins (except the parking brake pin)?

Does it have any other connections besides the remote pod?

Do you have the Nav unit or just the DVD?
Beat-Sonic NT5420 Navigation and DVD Control Bypass Module Combo

They show a different number for the Nav unit and a price $75 higher than the model number you posted.

Thanks!

The harness adapter I installed is the Beat-Sonic TVK-54 DVD Control Bypass Module ( https://www.beatsonicusa.com/nav-dvd...ss-module.html ) .

This is a short harness adapter that plugs in between the cars harness & the radio itself. I will post some pics up of the TVK-54 harness soon. I believe it bypasses the one pin (p brake) but will get back to you shortly to confirm that.

There is only the one connection off the harness which allows you to switch back to factory settings if need be. This switch however does not need to be switched on every time you start.

Description of the unit: The TVK-54 consist of subaru oem connectors which ensures perfect fitment male and female. The male side connects to behind the factory screen and the female connector connects to the factory harness that was initially going into the screen. The E-Brake wire is intercepted by a module which enables the bypass with the provided switch.

Yes, the product includes a harness that you insert between the car's 24 pin navigation harness and the socket on the back of the HU. All 24 pins passes through and the parking brake pin passes through the module.

There are no other connections other than the remote switch.

Picture1: Male Plug that connects to the factory navigation unit. Green wire is the E-brake sensor that is intercepted to the module and then to the switch.


Picture2: Female Plug that connects to the factory harness. Green wire is the E-brake sensor that is intercepted to the module and then to the switch.


Picture3: The TVK-54 harness and design


Picture 4: The Ground wire to be attached on the frame.


Picture5: Male Plug that connects to the factory navigation unit


Picture6: Female Plug that connects to the factory harness.


Picture7: The Switch that engages the bypass/override for MP3, navigation, DVD,bluetooth controls

Picture9: TVK-54 box and packaging

Here is a much easier option. No wiring. No risk of scratching precious interiors. No warranty issues. No insurance issues if you have a claim and the insurance inspector sees you have modified standard system (watching DVD while driving? no wonder you had accident=no payout).
Simply pull your handbrake up to the first notch! - hey presto everything works. Handbrake isn't (or shouldn't) be actually 'On' at the first click so that there is no actual wear on the brakes themselves - the only downside is that the handbrake warning light is on - big deal! ignore it or place a small piece of tape on relevant spot on display/dashboard - better than hacking your car about.........

If you have a Pioneer HU, you can use this product. It costs 7 bucks.
