Toyota Soarer/Lexus SC400 Project
Starting to put together a plan for a carputer project for my 1991 Toyota Soarer 4.0 V8.
Apart from an MP3 jukebox I want to use a PC to solve the problem with Soarers that the Sat Nav and NTSC-J TV tuner do not work in the UK. Also would like to see the possibility of including a GPRS adapter for voice and data calls too - much like an old style car phone.
The ideal thing about the V8 Soarer is that is includes an EMV 'Electro Multi Vision' LCD touchscreen that can be modified to provide an auxillary audio and video input through the TV input. I doubt I will be able to use the touchscreen functionality with it, but that's not really a hardship as I was thinking of an infrared serial input with some kind of remote control.
Not completely sure about the details yet but was wondering if anyone knows of someone who has attempted to install a PC with the Soarer's EMV before? There seems to be a lot of Lexus SC3/400s on here but none with the EMV.
Never attempted anything like this before so it's probably gonna be a bit of an adventure! Anyway there seems to be tonnes of info on the site so I look like I'm in the right place!
