    Toyota Avensis install

    ##Update in post 20!!##

    Hi everybody.

    I received my new company car about 10 day's ago.
    The following pictures will show how I everything went during the install.
    I had the system set up in my old car, but a little bit more ghetto.
    This now is still not very OEM like, and there's also some work left to do but I think it does not look to bad! I was also not able to cut and drill to much because the car will be sold by the company in about 3 years. So accutaly I was able to fit everything in without doing damage to anything originaly belonging to the car...

    everything is opened up...



    this is where the PC is placed (Epia M1000 WinXP 512MB Ram M1ATX)



    another shot of the opned up console



    and one of the parts that originaly belong there...



    This is how I mounted my 7" Lilliput



    I had to remove the Display for the Boardcomputer..



    The car from the outside




    And a shot of frodoplayer running


    Thanks goes out to all the big shot's in this forum, this would not have been done without your help!!! cheers!!

    I'm probably going to get yelled at for this one but why does your(apears to be) lilliput have a "carTFT.com" emblem?

    Thank's everybody for you opinions.

    Kiriller: I use the regulated 12V from the M1ATX to power the screen. makes sure I don't have anyproblems with unstable voltage there. This is integrated in the computer case and powers the mobo as well of course.

    RoyN: The audio is for now done by a hardwired FM modulator which works pretty well!
    I have a hidden switch that turns off the power to the modulator and the pc if I want to listen to FM only and don't want the pc to power on.

    looks alright considering a company car mate. not bad at all. You could almays fabricatie some kinf od hood/shroud/pod for the lilliput then it would be sweet with that nice high screen. Do you ahve stock navi? jus tlooking at those buttons below. It's a shame they dont contorl your carPc.

    Sweet ride! The Avensis is a very good car. The install looks really good too.
    What did you do with the onboard computer display?
    Do you have any noise problems in the sound? From what I see you've used the original cables...

    I don't think they do anything anymore since he removed the onboard computer display. Perhaps he relocated it somewhere else. I find that onboard computer very helpfull.

    Yeah, I wanted to fabricate some kind of housing first, but when I saw that it look pretty alright like this and is also pretty usable, I got to lazy

    Yes, the button are for the stock navigation if you order it. In my case you were able to control the car information display (range/gas milage/avg. speed/ and so on) I decided I don't really need that because I don't have to pay for the fuel anyway...

    I don't really have issues with the sound, it's just that the sound quality with an fm modulator is not always the best, there is some guy on the forum who is constructing some OEM stereo adaptor post
    that I'm going to order as soon as it's done...

    @RoyN What do you mean by a pic from the front?
