This is being advertised on a local website (in UK)

'Complete Landcruiser Kit - Sat Nav system - DVD player - Cd Changer (6 shuttle)- & CD Head Unit - All in working order'

Can anyone say whether this would work in an 80? Any ideas as to how easy the installation would be? Value?

Cheers, Jim :beer:

Jim,

The main challenge would be the control head. It is larger than the opening in the dash. It appears to be a unit from a 100 series. It would be cool if you could do it.

I've asked the seller to email the dimensions of the control head to see how big a hole is required. At the moment the bidding is under $150 - looks too tempting to miss out on...

I'm assuming it's from a 100 (another question I've asked the seller to clarify) since I don't believe it was ever an option with a UK 80. Does anyone out there with a 100 recognise it?

Cheers, Jim :beer:

Randy,

Good point. The control head in the picture appears to be a plain radio unit. The USA nav systems have a touch screen/radio display that looks quite a bit different.

.... Another question for the seller. I have seen systems which don't have a screen but use audio directions :dunno:
More home work required..

The radio openings on the 80 and 100 series should be double DIN's, its the roundish trim that will make it hard to install a 100 radio in an 80. One place to confirm the size is Crutchfield. They will sometimes give you what fits in your truck.
