    Keaton's '03 LX470 Thread

    Did that for a HAM install. Works well. Haven't owned a disc since the Gen3 iPhone. Have a passenger side headlamp assembly if you want it. It's not pretty (...sun-frosted), but it's whole. Same deal.

    Has anyone installed a Grom Vline instead of repairing their DVD-based Nav unit?

    Mine’s in the glove box. And it requires no WiFi if you’re using AA/CP, as you say. All that data is routed through your phone’s regular plan. @westwardCruiser is right though—not a ton of resolution is to be had on our old screens. The maps work well through the phones, I think, in part...

    LX470 HID Retrofit Project

    Not yet—I suppose I've gotten used to it (and...still cold, hah). Have plans to work on a bunch of electrical in the spring, and I'll definitely be doing something about it then.

    LX470 HID Retrofit Project

    Mine occasionally still does that even with the Morimoto relay harness. I can always get it to work eventually, so I'm putting it off until it's not so cold out anymore.

    LX470 HID Retrofit Project

    The earlier years were glass — '98-...'02? The only difference between new/old is the lens material.

    What have you done to your 100 Series this week?

    Haven't done it myself, but this thread details doing just that (and links to a tool that hopefully makes it much easier). https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/sagging-driver-door-adjust-fix-or-replace-hinges.1067824/

    Did the same thing. Well, had Lou do the same thing :hillbilly: My before/after on the housings looked the same. Good lord what a difference.

    Trip Computer Total Inaccuracy

    I don't think they're built for accuracy—more as a helpful reminder to fuel up. More for the average Joe/Jane.

    Has anyone installed a Grom Vline instead of repairing their DVD-based Nav unit?

    I use CarPlay through my iPhone. Calls are routed through the screen (lists who is calling, answer and decline buttons). The audio is routed through the car speakers, and the I use the mic included with the Grom package. When I hang up, it goes back to whatever I was doing before (nav, or nav +...

    Has anyone installed a Grom Vline instead of repairing their DVD-based Nav unit?

    It will work fine—the Grom unit replaces the feed for the disc changer. The hard buttons (climate, trip computer, nav, etc.) all stay factory. So she'll still have a dead nav, but gain the ability to just do everything through her phone (which is light years ahead anyway). Easily my most...

    Has anything been changed/serviced recently? Will it run long enough to throw a code?

    Pricing on control arms

    It looks like they're $315 each—new. I'd say it's not a great deal, but maybe passable if you're in a pinch and don't want to source all the new hardware alongside...

    I'm going to hang on to it for a couple of weeks—end of the month, probably—then toss it.
