    SC400 EMV Screen

    Anyone out there with a Toyota Soarer/Lexus SC400 with the EMV?

    I am wanting to use the touch screen that is already in the car.

    I am doing some research now into what can be done. Anyone interested?

    Hi - your enquiry popped up on my Google Alerts, so I'm visiting from SoarerWorld.com to advise that pretty much everything you need to know about using and reparing the EMV in a Toyota Soarer is available in our FAQs here: http://www.soarerworld.com/forum/sho...4&postcount=12

    Best of luck with this world-beating car - I've got 2, both with EMVs - a normally aspirated V8 with air suspension, and a supercharged version with Tein suspension

    Thanks for those links, but I cannot read Russian and I did not have any luck understanding what was being said!

    I have not had a lot of luck so far with my screen.

    I have been speaking to Vlad who has the best(EMV interface kit that I know of.

    Unfortunatley, while checking things out I noticed that someone has removed the TV unit from underneath my back seat. I have been told that it is quite an integral part of the interface kit.

    I am not quite sure what to do next to get the interface going. The ultimate dream would be to get a serial connection out from the screen.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi Vitecd,

    Vlad makes a kit that you soldier onto the EMV. It this allows you to send Infra-red commands out to a device by programming the PIC chip connected to the EMV.

    I asked him if it was possible to use parts of his kit to send serial commands out (for X&Y points) from the screen. He does not do this as he is more interested in consumer devices ie DVD players, MP3 players.

    I have a SC400 1992. The LTD (V8) had the EMV in it.

    If you could help me make a USB adapter that would be GREAT! Where do I start?
