  • My Install in A Lexus IS200 UK Spec

    Here is my Install
    My car is a Lexus IS200 SE UK Spec


    A 7" Touch Screen LCD, same as Xenarc from Cartft.com.
    Im really need to house the screen!!

    And here is my DVD Rom Drive.


    All the Computer Parts are in the Glove box and it comprises of:

    VIA 1Ghz Mini ITX mother board
    256 MB PC2100 Ram
    7" TFT Touchscreen VGA Monitor
    2.5" 40Gig hard drive
    Toshiba Laptop DVD rom drive
    60 watt morex 12V power supply
    ITPS controller
    windows XP
    Media Engine software
    No GPS as yet as I really cannot find any decent Software for use in the UK yet

    Sound for the moment is wired thru the stock headunit using a crappy Tape adapter as the Lex Headunit does not have an AUX In. On the plus side tho, it sounds pretty good as the cars Factory unit with amp and 8 speakers really sounds amazing. Im sure it would be much better with a line in tho


    This Forum has really been a great help in setting up my install, Thanks for all the posts that have helped me get to where my install is today

    Would sound better if you did RF modulator for it plus no wire running out of the glove box across you dash. They are fairly inexpensive as well.

      I have used RF in the car before it was a Kenwood unit, was really poor, the tape adapter is 120% better sounding to me

        I was wondering for the longest time if a Xenarc screen would fit into the JDM Nav housing. It is expensive to try, though.

        There is a way to add an AUX-IN, but it somewhat works.

        The best way would be to dump the stock HU, AMP, rear speakers and get aftermarket ones.

        P.S.
        Nice Car.
        <----- does that look familiar?

        P.P.S.
        You should've used masking tape around the dash area. It's all scratched up now.

          hehe yes that does look familiar
          my dash was all scuffed up like that when i got the car the previous owner must have had something rubbing on it

          Im looking at ways in which to motorise the screen so that it folds away, the screen will fit perfect in the nav surround if its face down!! I also have a JDM Dash Tray but the Xenarc is too big to fit into the dash tray

            Then the only other option is the JDM Nav housing. It is motorized. There are instructions on how to wire it. However, the price is US $650-$900. Eventually, I will try it out, when I am ready for a dual-monitor setup. It will be a long time before I do.

                    Does anyone know how to get a signal into the standard nav screen? Can the standard nav screen be removed and replace with a 7" tft?

                          Excellent thanks for the link. The idea being that I will use the standard screen for the carpc. I know its touch screen and wont be the sharpest of quality but it will do for the mean time and look OE.
