Range Rover OEM Grade CarPC Install
I have a 2003 Range Rover which currently has the BMW navigation system with the non-touch screen system built into the dash, I am going to be replacing this with a OEM grade carpc install because the original BMW screen is only 6.5 inch's i am going to use the newer style touch screen from the later 05-09 range rover. I am going to remove the original Land Rover touch screen and install a replacement 7" TFT touch screen connected to a custom carpc that will be installed in the rear of the car.
I am going to be running Ride Runner with a custom Range Rover 2010 inspired skin, below i a sample of what the main screen skin will look like. This system will also be fully integrated into the cars BMW iBUS network so i can continue to control the original BMW radio, onboard computer, instrument cluster and steering wheel controls using iBusRR.
UPDATE!! 10th January
I have recorded a short preview video of where i am up to with the skin.
Keep checking back for updates on this project!
