    Thanks for the links, John. Those units are smaller than the one I got (same as the one at the top of this thread). I'll use whatever info is there but, as I'm currently holding my glasses to my head as they're busted, I'll read through them later.

    My bad. I meant to say the OBDII module. Got mixed up. Been a while since I went through all this.

    I bought the tyre pressure monitor as an extra, there were two types available and I choose the type that uses the sensors on the valve rather than have to remove each tyre. i suppose they could easily be stolen although not much use to anyone without a monitor unit themselves.
    I'd be interested in those if the work well. Can you add a couple more for a trailer?

      My unit is called a 12.1" Tesla-style screen, although the screen size spec sometimes says 10.4"

      There's different ones for early or late model Prado 150's. I've got the earlier version. Also looking through what the XDA Developers are saying about them.

      Edit: And it looks like they've recently brought out bigger 16" versions (?)

        Wow the 16" version looks huge, although I think this is better value for money:

        The link title says 2Gb but the description says 4Gb+32Gb 64 bit Android 8.0 with PX5 8-core processor as compared with the larger screen versions having only PX3
        Anyway I hope your installation goes without any problems and looking forward to reading what you think of the unit.

          As you'd know, the distributors are hacking the units so they report higher specs but they may be behaving themselves now(?)

          Anyway I hope your installation goes without any problems and looking forward to reading what you think of the unit.
          Should be any day now :-)

          Edit: scheduled for sometime next week.

            Im also interested to see how this works we have also experienced the passanger unable to input destinations while driving, ive been looking a a similar unit for the MY18 facelift 150, and im curious if the fuel economy app displayed in the current unit will still display on the centre panel of the dash,(without the main head unit) as well as the navigational directions, radio etc

              I fitted one of these Android 12.1" screens onto my 200 Series. Reasonably happy with it, except for a few issues:

              1. The left temperature controls are actually controlling the temperature on the right side of the vehicle, and vice versa. Looks like it's not properly sorted out yet for right hand drive vehicles.
              2. The external temperature display only shows "-40 deg C" at all times. Clearly its not communicating to the correct sensor on the CAN bus.
              3. The inclinometer doesn't work at all

              Other than that, I'm reasonably happy with it.

              I've tried to go thru the various settings in the hidden menu but still haven't found the solution to issue #1. I don't really care about issues #2 & #3.

              Would be interested to know if issue #1 is also happening on the Prado version of these units.

                The issue of left and right the wrong way round sounds similar to my 10 inch unit which showed the front doors opened reversed. It was a simple fix once I worked out where to do it but unfortunately I have forgot and am in the UK so not near my Prado to check for you. I think the units are designed to be used in left hand drive markets hence the problem with standard settings.
                I think that I did post what I did, probably in a thread called "new head unit" or similar, I will hunt for it when I get time unless you can find it first.
