R-Pi based Volvo S80 replacement nav systemJuly 12, 2013

Reinis has been working on this Raspberry Pi based project for some time.

Itā€™s about replacing stock navigation system for Volvo S80 (which does not, and will not have maps for my home country). It had a nice motorized display and buttons on steering wheel for control. I really did want everything to be as close as stock as possible. It resulted in semi-usable navigation system, which replaces stock navigation unit in trunk- no wires running from trunk to dash- steering wheel buttons conveniently generated messages on CAN bus, which I connected to in trunk.

Reinis has posted links on his website to an overview of the project, summary of the hardware design, and his actual prototype hardware and in-car testing.
