    Thumbs up

    Entirely possible I initially missed it, but I could have sworn I scoured this entire site and couldn’t find drivers. No matter, now!

    This is most excellent, and very much appreciate the pointer regarding driver locale. I actually was a bit dubious regarding there even being Mac OS 10 drivers at all, so this really kicks arse!

    Next element of marked difficulty: Locating a scan converter that,

    a. Doesn’t suck
    b. Doesn’t break the barrier of being “Indecently Expensive” (< $100, in my book)

    A difficult endeavor...

    Thanks again for the info!

    I was wondering...would you happen to know if this may work on Toyota/Lexus OEM Nav Touch Screens?

    Nice work man. I have the same vehicle (just got it). Can you explain a little on the precedures for getting all the trim off to get the navi unit out? My first Luxury/Sport car and don't wanna break anything.

    navigation screen in TL 07 is cracked

    Guys,
    I know it could be the wrong place to post this question, but I've figured there could definitely be some people who might give me some valuable advice. My navigation screen on TL '07 is cracked by accident. Everything works, all functions are fine, I can see the screen and can control everything with buttons, but touchscreen obviously doesn't work. Do you have any suggestions on where I can get the replacement screen only (as dealership wants to replace the whole system-and it costs $2K+ which I don't want to go for as an option) or if there are any other solutions that would allow me to minimize the costs?
    Thank you in advance for all of your responses.
    Leo.

    Depends on if the touchscreen is cracked or the LCD is cracked. If there are no display issues at all (dark/light spots, bleeding color, misplaced colors) then it is likely that only the touchscreen is cracked.

    The first posts in this thread seem to indicate that the touchscreen used is a standard 4-wire resistive touchscreen (the OP even connects it to a USB controller and it works). If that is the case, then your challenge will be to find that particular touchscreen OR another 4 wire touchscreen with a cable long enough to reach the connector on the nav unit. If you haven't worked with the FFC (flat flexible cable) that is used to connect touchscreens before, you should know that it is not something that can be extended or bent easily, so finding a touchscreen where the FFC exits in or near the stock location would be of paramount importance.

    I think you could certainly accomplish this if you don't mind doing a bit of work and research...sure beats paying $2K+ for a <$50 part.

    Good luck.

    Nice!!... I am looking at doing this myself.

    I have an 05 Acura TL Non-Navi

    At the moment I am trying to determine what would be the best route to take. Doing alot of research and reading all the threads I find regarding the top both here and on AcuraZine. Thus far I have come up with two options.

    Option 1:
    Use a stock nav touch screen and do pretty much the same setup as Met.
    For this option I would want to completely remove the two HVAC LCDs that display the Temp/Fan and Radio. However I have yet to find anything showing that it's possible to get everything that displays on those LCDs to display else where. I know that with the stock screen hooked up and using the navi clock lcd you can transfer the Temp/Fan read out. This would leave me without the display for the radio.

    Question:
    Does anyone know if it is possible to transfer the radio display to the a stock touch screen without having the entire nav system?

    Option 2:
    Use an aftermarket touch screen.
    This would require me to relocate the HVAC LCDs down infront of the shifter (really don't want to do this but I don't see another option.) The upside here is that I could probably go up to an 8" screen.

    Thank you very much for your reply, parksgm. Yes, the LCD screen is OK as I can see everything in the same color as it used to be, no bleeding colors or dark spots anywhere, just cracks. I wonder if I can find this particular screen at some shop maybe, who sells Acura's touchscreens only (as parts). Also, do you know by any chance, who is the maker of Acura nav screens? Is it Alpine by any chance? Once I know the real manufacturer, I could try contacting them directly and see how much they charge for the touchscreen only. But I will definitely research more on that as I'm not in rush to fix it-it works fine, just I want to get rid of this problem eventually and not pay $2K+, which is ridiculous.
    Thank you again and I appreciate your response.

    Sunlight readability?

    Totally loved your install!! I had believed the resolution (or the lack thereof) would naje IEN BAV screens unsuitable for a CARPC display, but from your pics, it doesn't look bad at all!

    I am planning the next project for my wife's Camry, which doesn't have a NAV now. But this has got me thinking about getting a Toyota or even Acura NAV unit and working with it.

    How is the sunlight readability of the display? I am not sure if you have seen standard Lilliput or Xenarc installs, but if you have, how would you compare the OEM screen against those? I am guessing the OEM screens have very good sunlight readability (even better than the transflective LCDs for sale).

    Thanks! I was pleasantly surprised myself with how great the picture looked on the OEM display.
    It is sometimes difficult to see the display when the sun hits the screen right (wrong?). But it also depends on what is being displayed at the time. I have a darker skin that I'm using with Roadrunner, which I think makes it less readable in direct sunlight.
    I have not seen any other displays such as liliput of xenarc, so I can't compare.

    Good luck with your install, it's well worth the effort.
