    Chester,

    Yes, it was a massive move, especially from manual to auto - I guess it has semi-sequential paddles, but it is not the same!
    I was getting desperate to buy a car and get rid of my old one, especially when it had a few issues already and was offered 5k for it by the dealer lol.

    I bought the screen, soon I should have the PC components and start install!
    and yes the dollar is doing pretty well, hence i pushed to get the screen. Especially when it was expensive.

    and you never know, we might meet one day

    We might have to compare notes some time. I am starting my project on my Pontiac GTO which is basically a Monaro and very similar inside.

    sounds good to me.

    I will be updating the thread as I go with full instructions and pictures.
    This site's community helped a lot and it is the least I can do in return.

    thank you.

    I will be hopefully finishing the diagram by the weekend and I am open for suggestions and revision.
    Basically after the drawing, it's just a matter of making sure I have the hardware and then build build build!

    I did some research and I have found that the Joycon module is compatible with the steering wheel buttons

    some info that might help from another forum:

    To ensure you have the right brown wire, with the car off, put one end of a multi meter into the brown wire and the other to ground, and push each button, you should measure:
    NOTE FOR VY/VZ: Ensure you have the black/yellow wire earthed or the resistances will be incorrect.
    •Mode = 21.78K Ohms
    •Next UP = 11.78K Ohms
    •Next Down = 7.03K Ohms
    •Mute = 3.7K Ohms
    •Vol UP = 1.4K Ohms
    •Vol Down = 1.9 Ohms
    •NOTHING PUSHED = Infinite Ohms

    •Mode = 1.47K Ohms
    •Next UP = 790 Ohms
    •Next Down = 460 Ohms
    •Mute = 280 Ohms
    •Vol UP = 160 Ohms
    •Vol Down = 80 Ohms
    •NOTHING PUSHED = 3.66 KOhms

    this is the controller which I just purchased : http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CarPC-Joy...item4ab009b682

    btw the carpc has left the US and should be with me very soon!
    I received the GPS receiver.
