Well done RUKI.
I am a Camry Hybrid owner, but it is NZ new, so won't be in need of this particular conversion.
As I've said in the past, this type of conversion is sorely needed with the number of JDM imports we have. I'm sure I'm not the only pedant that requires displays to be in English. Then again, to a lot of drivers, as long as the car starts and the lights work, they don't care about the rest.

How many different vehicles does this make now that you have successfully converted? I'm sure there are any number of car dealers that would like to know it's possible.

Can do Prius ZVW30 (2010-2015 model) and zvw35 (PHV) (>2012).

 

Will be trialing new shape new dash type Prius 50 soon as my friend has bought one from Japan recently for his wife (2016 model) - car is in transit.

Dingbatt: .... How many different vehicles does this make now that you have successfully converted? ....

 

Prius ZVW30

 

Prius ZVW35 PHV

 

Nissan Leaf - ZEO / AZEO - all years

 

Nissan e-NV200 Van (technology allows to do gas and diesel versions of two different types of NV200 as well, but people are unaware that it is possible)

 

Toyota Aqua with LCD

 

Toyota Camry v50 (>2012), can do v40 as well...

 

---

 

Work in progress with Mazda CX-5 and Mazda 3 - those are interesting - too many versions. 

 

As usual I am buying dashes to play with on the bench first. Have back up and back out plan in place as a standard ITIL practice...
