Re: "Kitchen Sink" GPS review


I have just grabbed one of the DIG_Options DVD/GPS units. They were on special for Christmas.. emoticon

These units get a great write up on [sign in to see URL]. Backup in Australia seems good as well.

From what I can tell it is a new model. I notice it now comes with the wiring looms for T30 and T31 X-Trails.

Mine is going into a T30 ST. Might have to take a few pictures along the way. emoticon

Anyone fitted a double din GPS to a T30. I only found one for the T31.

Re: "Kitchen Sink" GPS review


Thanks Jalalski, you've found it again.

Bugger it's a Series 1, however it does confirm my finding that the STD brackets mount it a little too far out.

I thought of two options;
1. Modify the fascia
2. Modify the brackets

Looks like modifying the brackets is a better option.

Now to mount the Reversing Camera and GPS antenna first...

Re: "Kitchen Sink" GPS review


Well I bit the bullet and put it in. About 8 hours of slow work in hot weather.

It's the X-Trail model from DIG_Options from Ebay. All good so far.. emoticon

Nissan brackets mounted it too far forward so I modified the universal brackets in the kit, I didn't want to modify the nissan one's just in case. Once modified then bolted to the unit as far back as the slots allow and it was about 1mm behind the fascia.

Modified Bracket. Trimmed and bolt holes enlarged.

Bracket mounted to radio & dash. Mounted no problems on the locating pins.

Mounted position. Uses all the standard screws to mount.

GPS antenna mount stuck to dash behind Instruments, tin was used as the antenna is magnetic. Under the plastic dash puts it out of site.

]--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Wires every where..... Lucky most of them just plug straight into the loom because it is Nissan specific model (another loom is supplied in the box for post 2007 models). Ipod cable was run to the glove box in front of the driver, I made cable groove in blanking plug in box.

Next fun bit was the rear camera cabling I just pulled the door rubbers and ran it above them. At the back I just poked it under the plastic cover.

]--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
This brings the wire out under the rubber boot for the rear door. To push it through I sprayed inside the boot with INOX and pushed it through with a cable tie as a leader.

The rubber grommet was on the wrong side for where I wanted to mount the camera so I put in another grommet. Same place just other end. Step drills are so handy...

Camera cable from inside the door.

]--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
Camera mounted under trim panel. Looking slightly inwards to see towbar.

]--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
The view now when I put it in reverse, when it worked the first time it looked like I was reversing up the wall, quick re-alignment fixed that. emoticon

Point from Matt was to connect the Red wire on the camera cable to the backup trigger on the unit and power from revering light/camera in the door. This reduced the need to run another cable forward.

It looks like a great bit of kit and my dash isn't so busy as most of the toys are now replaced by this unit.

Now to find all the features..

Great report emoticon

You look like you had some fun fitting it and the photos work well for clicking on for enlarging!

So have you a photo with it all complete or are you still putting things together?

Love where you have the reverse camera!

Regards Scot

Thanks for the support.

Nup it's all in now and working, I made sure each piece worked before reassembling all the plastics.

Is this what to mean?

Camera works well there especially to see towbar and curb..

It runs Windows CE 5 so most PDA navigation programs will work on it. Especially OZIexplorer like most of the Prado boys run... emoticon
