High level radio / cubby hole

Postby Joncording » Wed Jan 02, 2019 11:25 pm

Sorry if I have missed something by not knowing what to search for, but in my new (to me) tourneo custom there is a high level storage compartment in the cab.

This feels like the perfect place to add some modifications, either a WiFi unit, or a android head unit, or a raspberry pi car pc, or something cool.

My question is ... what is this space there for, it looks like the size of a single din radio, does it have power nearby that I can tap into or will I still need to run cables back to fuse box etc. No matter how much I Google it I cannot find anyone discussing it, perhaps I am using the wrong terms?

All help appreciated.

It is where the tachograph goes.

I don't know if it has power there but it shouldn't be hard to add if needed.

Like loot said it’s for the taco if your lucky and because yours is a tourneo it might have the plugs there they should be tucked one side and then there’s another loom that plugs in to those to extend it to the taco iv got my CB in mine unfortunately mine didn’t have the plugs and I got the loom for nothing so if you need one iv got one
just follow the onscreen instructions and it's fairly idiot proof...trouble is, we keep producing better idiots

It housed the beacon and aux switch pack too if spec'd
don't believe there's a loom unless you had tacho or switches factory

I liked at mine and there's no obvious wiring there, I have an lcd rear view mirror there and I have a twin camera road traffic camera, I may need to use the interior light circuit to power them, that depends on the fuse rating otherwise I'll need to run a fused feed up there I think. :D
