So far the car has a bucket load of kit installed (came like this from new and done by a pro install company in London)
I am now going to change the old kit and upgrade to a full CarPuter with onboard ODB2 diags, pc, mp3, wifi and modem.
Currently installed kit:
2 x Alpine Headrest 7" Widescreens w/brain box TME-M750
1 x Alpine TV Tuner TUE-T012
1 x Vdo Dayton MS5000 GPS/SAT NAV
1 x Unknown front Screen
1 x Alpine DVD Player DVA5205P
3 x Sony remote Headsets
1 x Kenwood RF Modulator
1 x Alpine Composite unit KCE100V
1 x Alpine Multi nav/dvd/tv/hu remote
1 x Alpine TV remote
1 x VDO sat nav remote
all aerials concealed (thats the good bit) you cant see anything
plus just bought a new VDO Dayton TMC5011 traffic master box (new version) from ebay. to connect up for traffic as am moving back to the UK in January....
plus a bucket load of cables and relays....
Here is the current setup
The front screen is causing me problems as the surround was cracked in the bottom right hand corner when I got the car and since I reied to repair it I cracked it twice more...bloody irony!!!
I have no idea what the screen is?? It has NO make or marks on it and have looked everywhere to find it. Weird that it fits the RR so perfectly!!!
I want to replace it with a bigger screen that will accomodate the pc desktop and skin but it needs a socket for the VDO sat nav??? I am lost on this one which means I am now stripping down the car and doing a reverse install to see how the installer did it.
Here is a picture of his hiding place
