So another question for you..

The car we have has an eclips GPS/CD/DVD/TV radio thingy in it. But of course its all Japanese & only plays CD's & the radio. We have the expander thingy but its not installed. I was wondering if it would just be worth putting a new system in? Is it easy enough to do? I don't want anything flash just radio & CD.

either way you will have to pull out the dash but i think the easiest way would be to just put in the expander.

oh ok. I hate that these things were not already done. I was under the impression that they were putting it in for me. But they only supplied the piece.

could we do it ourselves? Put the expander in that is? Or would it be too complicated?

no not really you will need to take the dash out 3 screws and conect the expander to the antenna lead then reassemble hope you have small hands or ( know a small handed person lol ) Very Happy

Hmmm might get DH to look at it.

If you are interested I have a basic radio CD out of a Yaris going cheap (they fit). I bought it for the same reason but went to a 6 stack CD, MP3, blue tooth system. I think though the exapnder is the way to go because some of the systems installed are actually quite good.

I was have a play with it today. I found that I actually get 2 normal stations though the TV reception LOL. Still not good enough though.
I will keep it in mind werx, But I think DH wants an MP3 thingy in it also. Personally I don't see the point. LOL

Did you install it yourself? I have never had anything like that done, does it cost much?

No had it professionally installed with new speakers all round. Cost a fortune. It is actually quite difficult trying to locate Car Audio installers in Sydney. Strathfield cornered the market then went bust. I bought a genuine Toyota system on eBay for $220

The radio on mine pulled out with 2 removing tools - 30 seconds flat - you got a pic of the dashboard in case it's different? Mine is similar to this



I tell you what was scary though, I google searched for a dashboard and found MY van on a transporter getting picked up in England after the alternator had failed in Slovenia in summer Shocked We got as far as Dover using charged up main and leisure batteries...........pale Cool
