Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know if the accessories sold by Coastal Tech conflict with
warrantees? I am interested in a couple of the devices that they have
developed, and I may purchase them. But I would less inclined if they void
any warranties.

What do you know?

Well, you're definitely on safe ground installing their mud flaps.  ;-)
But seriously, I agree with you that some of their devices sound really
nice.  I love the concept of being able to use the navigation system
without having to be stopped before entering a destination (and avoiding
the "I agree" all the time), but whether these enhancements would void
the warranty I just can't say.  I think the ones that just involve
plugging in wires would be okay, but you certainly don't want to base
anything on what *I* think.

The EV modification can be accomplished in many ways - though the
Coastal kit is the most elegant. Any EV mod will void the warranty on
the battery, according to Dave Hermance of Toyota's Tech Center.

As for the I Agree killer, video kits, Engine Run and Brake indicator,
XM radio, and other nifty gadgets, etc, should not have any effect on
warranty as they do not interfere with normal operation.
