    Actually, every minivan that we've owned (Dodge Caravan, Ford Windstar, Pontiac Montana, Honda Odyssey), you have to recalibrate the compass by driving around in a parking lot in a circle 3-5 times. So, it's really not that strange, but pretty stupid if you ask me.

    The only dents in it are the ones caused by me...luckily not too bad, though.

    Woohoo! Finally got the overhead console in. The trip computer works, and has distance to empty, odometer, compass, temperature, estimated trip time, instantaneous fuel economy, and average fuel economy. There were only 6 wires I needed to hook up to get this working. Two were the CCD+ and CCD- (which were for the trip computer...these I spliced into from the van's body control module), 12v and ground (for the trip computer and the lights), and temperature sensor + and -.

    Since my van was not equipped for the overhead console originally, it did not come with a temperature sensor, I got one from an old Socket 7 motherboard, and hooked it up. Right now I have it and the wire connecting it packed in the backmost compartment because I was too tired to run it. I'll run it to the front of the van later. Right now I guess it's interior temp instead of exterior temp. (You can kind of see the yellow-goldish wire I used in the pic).

    I'm pretty happy how it came out..looks factory, as if it had always been there. Later I might use my palm as a touchscreen (once I have my screen in), and mount it in the middle compartment (right now the middle compartment is a sunglass holder...which I have no need for). Feel free to comment/bash/question.

    On to the pic:

    Hi, New to this forum. I know this is an old thread but it is exactly what I want to do. great project by the way would like to see how it worked out. Anyway this is exactly what I want to do with my 1998 grand voyager. I want a screen between the seats and be able to control it from the driver seat. Any thoughts or ideas?

    cheers.
    Robert.
