Southpatt

C-HR Head Unit

Recommended Posts

I purchased the tool from China... Could be here in a week or a month.

I would hard wire the unit in, but I would rather take my time and do it properly with the correct pins and plugs. 

I did the rounds trying to find some new pins, Toyota Spare Parts said the shell was about $30. A set of pins was about $100 or more, way too expensive.

One of the stereo installation companies said they only hard wire, I told them that is why they did not get my business, another said just buy an adapter cable that has the same square pins as the Toyota. I found a Mazda cable ($20) with the same type pins, so I will take the pins and crimped cables of the appropriate colours and join them to the Joying wires that do not have pins. I will end up with an easily removable adapter cable that looks neat tidy that can be disconnected in minutes if needed.

The OEM prices are ridiculous!  Definitely worth the wait to build something that is plug and play.

Cheers! Running the Dashcam and Mic are probably the most fiddly of the jobs.  Lots of video shot, will put it all together in a week or so.

I gave up waiting for the depinning tool and made one.

I rewired the plug and plugged everything in.

I now have the unit securely installed in the car with everything working.

Nice. Did you manage to retain functionality for the buttons on the steering wheel?

I repurposed the speak button as a mute button. Other than that all buttons retained their original functionality. If I can find a way to use the speak button for "OK Google" I would be extatic.

Total install time was less than an hour.

I updated the Startup Logo on my unit to a modified C-HR Club Logo of 1024 x 600 pixels.
