  1. Anyone know which nav SD card I should be looking for my new set up, aftermarket gps aerial ordered from ebay as advised by JW on a different thread.
  2. Hmm haven't got one touch so sounds like it would be to much of a job.....
  3. Lol I was thinking what next lol what does sync 2/3 bring to the table and is it complex Want to get folding mirrors as I always end up in the drivers side looking at the ns thinking damm it.. had them in my mk2 RS and such a nice thing to have.
  4. Oh damm what a headache glad you managed to sort it. I did what JW said and started lower to make sure it converted ok and below what I needed to get to, although I originally wrote the wrong millage on my previous post, so had to plug the old unit back in to get the right millage so I didn't it up... lol Managed to get it sorted and I'm happy with the fresh look... thanx guys yet again
  5. Hi JW, do just set it in the IPC tab under odometer in KM then click set
  6. Hi JW, thanx for the prompt reply. I already downloaded your modified version and this is what I was running... am I doing the procedure wrong maybe?
  7. So in central config tab, i clicked read from BCM then in the same window in clicked write to IPC but millage on the instrument is still showing old millage.... any help please need to drive the car tmw Just read and attached pics of BCM and IPC both showing millage at 44357 but instrument still showing 27562....???
  8. So i should be receiving my replacement instrument next few days, is this all i need to do once i plug it in? Thanx
  9. Thanx JW really appreciate your help and everyone else, once again.
  10. So I've managed to finally find one with the part number you kindly pointed out, it's from a 2014 preface lift 1.6 petrol titanium auto, will this be ok for my 2013 1.0 eco 125 man..... I hope so ...?
  11. Thanx for the procedure @iantt 👍🏼 this worked a treat for me. Stop/Start was intermittent and thought I was going mad 🤣
  12. Thanx Comes up with a couple diesel ones 🙈 Waiting for the guy to email me the part number he has one of a 2014 pre face lift 1.6 auto petrol 🙏
  13. Wilco I think I may have noticed a difference from mk3 and mk3.5 speedos. On the later models the kmh is in white where the early type is light blue..... what's your thought??
  14. Hay peeps, so ive been looking high and low with a lV3 speedo with less mileage. I think I found one but just want to confirm with some of you guys if this is ok. Also with JWs amended software is it a case of just downloading it to the same fold as focccus and run the software as normal, so I can change the mileage up as it's different 10k ish Picture is of the parts catalogue using donor car vin Thanx
  15. Is it factory camera or aftermarket? As JW mentioned it turned out easier for me to route the aftermarket camera wire to the front display linked by a fakra hsd to av adapter, and not use the factory fakra connections in the boot, because the connector at the passenger footwell end is non hsd fakra and my display only takes hsd type. Picture from Tommo 👍 @ JW as he was a massive help in my install, hes a knowledge god
  16. @iantt hi ian I'm looking to do this swap aswell as I've already changed my centre display and now want it to match... any idea on part numbers to look for as all I find on ebay is the bigger screen for 2014 onwards and as JW mentioned I need a MK3 one Thanx
  17. Right now I've upgraded my centre display with reverse camera, I want to also change my instrument display to the larger size and match. Any ideas on what to look for? I've read from JW1982 that it needs to be from a MK3 and not MK3.5 So if someone can help with part numbers or what I need to look for or if anyone has one for sale with mileage below 49k or knows where one is All help is most appreciated
  18. Hay JW, just went out to see if it worked and as you said, worked a treat. Thank you so much for you help in helping get this sorted 👍 absolute legend
  19. Ok @JW1982 everything is connected, and camera codes changed and saved using focccus but when going in reverse nothing comes up 🤔 do I need to do anything else on focccus? I enabled drive away locking which worked fine.
  20. Perfect, thanx JW 👍🏼 Managed to route the cable along the edge of the roof liner down the ns although a lil concerned about the airbags, should it be ok?
  21. Hay guys so I've fitted the rear aftermarket camera new screen and facia apart from coding the rear camera do i need to make any changes on focccus for the new screen like option #172 touchscreen? But screen comes on ok ect (yet to test camera) I've yet to connect the camera as I'm still working out how to get the dam cable to the front, managed to get it into the cabin at the rear where the rubber gaitors are, from tailgate to roof dont know if i need to remove the pillar trims etc. Thanx
  22. @JW1982 would you have a photo of how you wired your camera to the rear wiper? Not sure which wires to T into.
  23. Lol I thought I was ok around cars, but JW knocks it of of the park 🤓
  24. Wow your work sounds awesome jw, whish you was my neighbour 😂... ur skill set is more advance than mine when it come to this stuff lol, so I think I'll go the basic route. What I might do then, is offer everything up and see what it looks like both powered by reverse then to the wiper to see which I prefer, what do you think? I think the rear wiper option sounds better and cleaner on the display as a visual but was worried it would burn the camera out some how as it is constantly on while ignition is on.... is this true?
  25. Hope you get it sorted Tom. I'm going the route of @JW1982 Just a few questions, With the rear camera wiring, will I need to use the signal wire which is with the RCA lead? With the power wire I think I'm going to run it to the reverse light wiring so will need to extend it, what size twin core wire do you recommend? Al's @JW1982 what is the reason to power the camera from the rear wiper and not the reverse light? Sorry for all these questions again
