R-Pi based Volvo S80 replacement nav system

Posted on Wednesday, June 12th, 2013 in R-Pi by the machinegeek

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

It’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.
