Dean, I just had a call from my dealer who tells me that the part I need is no longer available. He also says that he knows someone who is working on an alternative, but it isn't likely to be cheap. It's handy to have TV in the car, but with such limited use it doesn't make sense to incur a big outlay.
I noticed that your S 430 is the same year as my S 350, and am just curious as to what you did.
The unit cost me 698USD to have delivered with the camera and dtv tuner. The install is very simple, But you will need an adapter in order to use the standard GPS antenna I used this one - RFShop Australia Pty Ltd > Store .
If you have an amp you will need to use the long cable that comes with the unit to bypass it, I didn't have the amp so it was not needed. The only modding needed it to trim the dash once you have the command unit out, pic will show you where to cut (both sides need to be cut).
The only problems once done are that you can not set the clock in the instrument panel from it and the menu buttons on the steering wheel work the menu and skip the tracks forward or backward when used, all other buttons on the steering wheel work as normal.
There will no longer be directions in the instrument panel display when using the GPS, not a problem to me as I only ever used the audio from the standard nav unit anyway.
There are other ways too, one of which came with the car for me (Cable and DTV tuner to connect to the factory wiring). This was an upgrade which I preferred as I now have DVD, BT, USB, SD, DTV, AUX input, Reversing camera, better NAV and widescreen. I can even add a DVD stacker and Amp to the system (mounted in the factory locations).
