Sat Nav dash install, proper mint!



  Volvo S60 T5


Took long enough but its all sorted now, and its proper mint.

System specs for everything as follows......

PS2 , 600W amp powering DB Audio sub, infinity speakers all round, sony MP3 head unit, vdo ms5000 nav system(now with latest nav disk, no more trips to Bristol:oops:), vdo multimedia module, everything runs via headunit for sound.

If anyone wants to do a similar install to this then I recommend the VDO screen as its virtualy the same as the standard Reno one, needed a few minor mods to the case that the screen sits in and also had to remove the remote sensor from the screen and extend the wire, if you look closely at the pics you might notice a small hole on the side, this is for the remote sensor.

Dont suppose youve got the part numbers for the surround have you? Someone mentioned in another thread that you managed to find them.
 


out of interest mike dyou know if the renault screen/controls could be used with vdo kit sourced direct rather than renaut to cut down the cost ? still very tempted to sort mine but want it to be identical in terms of the controls in the dash etc ?
looks spot on btw be interested to see it in person sometime.

yes mate, have all the part numbers as follows and prices.....

dash is 77 01 059 772 231 + vat

surround is

82 00 069 065 BRACKET DASH PANE 17.39 + vat

you can pick up a vdo ms5000 system from ebay for around 300 to 400 now.

Loony, you cant use the renault controls with the VDO system as far as I know.

Spent 280 for everything, already had the nav system for a while.

Great work Mike, that has to be the best install ive seen on here.
 


Mike do you have to buy both the top dash and the surround?

Do you know what size the screen is ?

Wanty to do this might take a trip to renault today and get these parts ordered.

that looks well smart.. well done

just out of interest how much would that little lot cost to buy and fit?
 


surprised you didnt take the opportunity with the dashtop off to run your curly power cable behind the dash/centre console out of the way.

Awesome work dude. Real neat. Love the factory fit look to it. Keep going the way you are and youll retain your title!!

:D
 


looks good mate, that definatly the way i think im going to go think im going to use an alpine touch screen system instead of the vdo setup.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

As to costs of the whole system in my car, not added it up just bit by bit over time.

must be over 1500 I would have thought and the rest.

that is a great install there mate, i have a 2002 clio dynamique and i have the standard dash with the time only and i really want a tv :D

do you think it would be better if i go for the renault dash and sat nav parts, or just get a motorized japanese:oops: tv screen and hide the dvd player inthe glove cmpartment,and which would be cheaper:oops:

it could work out cheaper buying the renault dash than a motorised dvd HU

wot i plan to do is get the dash and holder and mould my own tv screen eg 6" alpine or somethin and not worry bout sat nav and have a slim ps2 inthe glovebox
 


Could you do a guide to how you did this Mike172 as its very tempting for myself to have a go at if I decide not to get a 182 due to finances.

do a search in this section for a guy that put blue surface mounted LEDS for the dash display - someone posted a link for the megane dash which is very similar to the clio
 


looks wicked mate... where did ya mount the ps2? also which one did u use the old ps2 or the new slim line one?
