    I know this is not a Toyota 4Runner but this thread has an example of someone using a factory NAV screen from a Nissan 350Z. This is the link to his web site giving a description on how he did it. Maybe you can glean some ideas from this. Hope this helps.
    System:
    Epia M1000 w/512MB PC2100, Xenarc 700TS, ATI 7500 PCI, OPUS 150 PSU, 2.5 40GB 5400 HDD, 802.11g PCI, Slim Slot DVDR,
    Gyration RF Kybrd, OBDII adpt. + sftwr, XP pro, iGuidance/Royaltek GPS NAV, XMPCR, Kenwd KAC-8401 4 chnl amp, 10" pwd sub

    Another update -
    I just phoned the USA division of Fujitsu Ten (manufacturer of the screen - their number is 310-327-2151). I got the confirmation that my screen is in fact one of their products - model number 17006 (this model number is in tiny print on the bottom of the frame of my screen) from the person who answered the phone in their OEM navigation division. He transferred me to a guy named Miguel, but he wasn't in, so I left him a voicemail. Hopefully I'll hear back from him on Monday!

    UncleGeek - I definitely appreciate the link! I'm sure it'll be useful. I'm thinking of getting a 350Z as possibly my next vehicle, actually :-P

    Brief update-
    Just spoke with Miguel over at Fujitsu Ten - he is supposed to send me the pinout diagram for the screen within the next hour or so. I'll post it as soon as I get it.

    I haven't had time to call back Showtime Audio yet. I think that they are a bit out of my price range right now anyway... Depending on how things go, I might give them a call back though. We'll see.

    I have a feeling you are going to run into the same problem as trying to use a laptop screen, the lack of a VGA controller. Good luck though, hopefully I'm wrong.

    Cool Them guys at Fujitsu....

    Hey Guys,

    I never heard back from Fujitsu Ten. The guy never faxed the specs. I called him back the following day and left a message, but there was no call back.

    I was totally frustrated, to say the least. I've given up for now because my semester has gotten way too busy.

    If anyone else has an '03 navigation system like myself and is interested in doing a conversion, give them a call! All the info you need is in this thread.

    But, if any of you score the pinout diagram, please drop me a line because I do still want to pick up this project again someday!

    As far as not having a VGA controller, I would be using a VGA video card for a VGA controller. The screen *should* have RGB inputs as well as an HSync and VSync signal. Thus, it should be possible to create an adapter to interface with the screen in this manner. But, I guess it is possible that the screen might not have the hardware necessary to receive a VGA signal...although I am not sure of how likely that is.

    I guess time will tell

    I just e-mailed Fujitsu Ten in Japan explaning my project and requesting a pinout diagram or any other pertinent information. I'll be sure to post if I hear back!

    Took awhile, but I finally heard back. Fujitsu Ten said that I can order a service manual from United Radio. Their number is 1-800-448-0944. I'm going to call them about that.
