Default New GPS/radar setup

Well for the longest time I had my radar detector'* cord running down the dash. But since I got my GPS I decided to go ahead and run both cords under the dash. So 10 minutes and some soldering later: (Sorry for the night shot, lemme know if you want a daytime picture.)

And that gps is so cool, my phone links up to it and it works as a speakerphone, and if you lookup directions for a mall or something, you can push a button and it will call that place for you. But thats not the best part, you can customize the screen it shows when you start your car!:

I really thought about pulling a Billboost and fiberglassing the thing flush in my dash but there is nowhere at all to do that in this car...

garmin nuvi 360: Beware of price range between 500-700. I got it for free from the liquidation outlet I work at. I wouldn't recomend buying one untill its under 300. I does some cool things but not worth the price for the actual use you get out of it

how do you get the Pontiac arrow head to display for that non-factory installed GPS? I wish my GPS could display like that

google image pontiac arrow and find a good one and load it on. Really un-needed but nice feature to have.
