  1. I looked into this quite a while ago , if you trawl very deep through lots of the old threads on this forum I think you will find plenty of people who have hit the same problems, with regards to to radio the Japanese have a totally different frequency scale so I do know for a fact that you can find a converter for this. The TV will need converting to PAL I've seen threads on this also, the Sat Nav I'm affraid possibly will never work as there isn't a disc for the UK and the firmware is written in Japanese (I would like to stand corrected if anyone knows otherwise). Try this site and see if they can help Converters But if you want the best answer it would be probably to give up and replace it as the conversion will cost an arm and a leg. Had a look through found this one from a couple of years back sounds like the same issues :ffs: Old thread con the same subject

  3. See earlier thread a guy called KEV was selling a lovely unit for £650. if I had that amount I would have it myself ! Fitted a touch screen to my RAV a couple of years ago cost me £500 on ebay, one of the best on the market and operates reversing camera. Keep looking ;) ;)

    Rav 4 Xtr

    I've fitted the full screen Toyota DVD Sat Nav system in my Rav 4, it goes straight in no need to mess with convertion cables ETC, they turn up occasionally on Ebay and some forum members sell them on here. A dealer will only tell you that you can fit the turn by turn TNS 300 CD system to the Rav which will be the 3 part numbers he's talking about, mine is the type used on Corrolla's, expect to pay around £500 for it butits far better than other systems on the market it included's an option for a reversing camera full calendar PDA option and maintenance reminders.
  6. You are indeed wrong, I have bought one from my local dealer, I think it was about £65 but worth it to hide anything in the boot. :D
  7. Might work I have a brand new one of those in my garage but not really tried to fit it as the 3 dr doesn't have the hooks behind the two front seats, but you could probably fit ones from a 5 dr in the right place. Let me know if you want it I paid about 20 quid for it not sure what they fecth on ebay though.
  8. Mark, are the dog guards that have telescope poles, from floor to roof not any good ?. ← I can confirm the 3 Dr doesn't have the holes in the roof that are on the 5 Dr, however isn't there a Toyota hard dog guard that has plundgers on the top and bottom, I bought one off ebay which has the clips for the 5 dr only so I can't use it.
  9. I use to have the Full Screen Nav Head unit fitted in my Rav4 with the tape drive (not DVD) but needed the external TNS300 DVD box with the Satalite receiver in to make it work, as I couldn't get hold of a TNS300 for a reasonable price I replaced the whole lot for the all in one head unit, so I think if you did get hold of one it would I/F OK.
  10. Toyota dealers do indeed do this mod now, but probably wont be as fast as getting one from SparkyDog. Part no is: 68650-42040
  11. If you can get hold of one of the proper Toyota Sat Nav units and not one of the Tom Tom toys there's a world of difference - I picked up one on ebay for £450 so keep looking they do turn up from time to time.
  12. The squeak behind the dash is a well known issue on the RAV 4 you might have to dig deep but a did see someone post a toyota recall document with regards retrofitting something on the dash a long time ago. :ffs:

    3-door Rav4

    Just has a quick look on mine sounds like your seat runner covers are missing mine are on both sides
  15. Alternativley if you want to splash out a bit more buy the Toyota Sat Nav unit either from someone on TOC or Ebay then fit one of these - will blow your mates away !!!iPod Interface
  16. I've fitted the same head unit in my Rav4, I know all the connections on the rear and as far as I'm aware (someone correct me if I'm wrong) theres no where to connect the trip connector to so I'm affraid it's probably not supported. :ffs:
  17. 1. I've fitted one to my RAV, first up yes sound like you've connected up the reverse sensor OK, all this does is to supply a +12v signal to the head unit to notify that the car is in reverse usually taken from the reversing light circuit, you have 2 choices with the camera no one is sure about the output voltage coming from the head unit but its not +12volts and most aftermarket camera's require 12v, so you can either permanently power the camera ( wish I had done that) or take the supply from the reversing lights so you have to wait a second or two for the camera to powerup. 2. The handbrake sensor (someone may correct me if I'm wrong) is for stopping the Sat Nav destination from being entered whilst moving,this is a requirement for the US market so I would bother connecting it. 3. I didn't need to connect the speed signal in the RAV if it has the standard 10way & 6 way block connectors you might find its part of the loom, when you first install the NAV you might find it takes sometimes upto 1/2 hr before the system finds itself ( make sure the antenna is not too restricted though) If you need any connector diagrams or diag manuals just PM me. ← Hi, I am currently looking for the B9003 unit... can someone suggest the best place to pick one up? I heard ebay is a good source, however I cannot find one listed at the moment. How long does it take to swapout the unit? I've changed headunits before, but this sounds more involved as I'll need to consider the antenna placement. Anyway, I hope you manage to complete the installation without problem! Many thanks! Stuart ← It's actually simple my granny could do it, remove the 4 hex screws around the radio/vents then remove 4 bolts from around the radio, strap antenna to pipe behind radio/head unit plug in 10 way & 6 way connectors from the toyota loom plug in car ariel & antenna, swap radio brakets to head unit replace all the bolts and hey presto, took me 10 mins max the first time I fitted one. The head units turn up from time to time there was one on ebay recently alternatively I've seen one or two here on TOC for sale very recently. Any other issues regarding speed & reverse sensors on TOC are irrelevant you only need the 10 & 6 way blocks from current radio. ;)
  18. Yes, you have to supply a 12V line to the hand-brake connector on the rear of your Sat-Nav. Usually when the hand-brake is "on" it supplies 12V to the input on the back of the Sat-Nav system and nothing when the hand-brake is off; so if you supply a constant 12V feed to this connector it will think the hand-brake is "on" and therefore allow you to use the sat-nav system whilst on the move. ← PM me for any pin outs or connection details :hokus-pokus:

  20. He's sort of right, I can only speak from a 2000 onwards RAV point of view but probably same senario, On my RAV I found that when I took the panels off the speakers were on spacers not only that the speakers were built onto the spacers - ugh!! I went to a audio dealer and bought some specific spacers for the RAV when I got home the parts were in the wrong box I wasn't going back as it was 40 miles away, so I retrofitted the speaker/spacers, you need to cut the spokes out and cut like a cardboard ring around the top then mount the speakers into it. The other point is that you will probably need to drill the rivets out that hold the speakers in place. On the RAV 2000 onwards they have 16.6cms speakers I used the Sony XS series in mine, try to get hold of the spacers from an car audio center if you can.
  21. Full Touch Screen Sat Nav is the ultimate mod for the RAV when thats in a reversing camera to finish it off, watch you mates heads turn when you show off you new motor. :o
  22. Yes it is a stupid thing to suggest. The Toyota satnav system is one of the best but does suffer from the problem that you cannot input, i.e. via an sd card, additional points of Information in addition to it's own supplied database. Before I had the stanav I had a pda system and it was at times much better, especially with a young grandchild, to do a search for a Brewsters restaurant with playbarn. ← No you can't input from an SD card but you certainly can add POI's and set your prefered Icon to each of them, like friends or families address's I've used the house icon etc etc :hokus-pokus:
  23. Sorry Trekkie can you elaberate - what buttons?
