2006 Scion TC & Guru Car Computer
I blogged about the Guru Car Computer product recently on our home page. Here are the full high resolution pictures about how the install happened. Full specs, pictures, and details will be released late next week on the store for those of you who might want to buy one. I will also be taking this to the BBQ tomorrow for anyone who wants to see it.
We use our Scion for testing out all sorts of projects. For the last 6 months we have been using to test the guru PC. This is a super quick work log mainly because of there was so little to do.
Here is a screenshot of the Scion Dash
We took out the factory radio. The Guru doesn’t come with a mounting bracket so we re-used the bolts to hold it into the bottom two holes. One of these days we will drill out the top 2 so we have a total of 4 mounting points.
There is tons of room in the dash. You can see we are also testing OBD-II and our horribly late BoomzBox HD radio tuner.
I soldered and shrink wrapped a wiring harness.
With my newly soldered harness, the connectors match perfectly.
I installed a pcmcia Verizon Internet card, USB extension cables to the glove box, the wiring harness, the GPS antenna, Wifi Antenna.
In it goes:
If this were not in our lab car we would probably invest in getting a silver trim bracket to seal the space in-between the unit and the dashboard.
