all aftermarket HU installs would be custom, by LCD do you mean the top display where trip info is?

take a look at this thread, it has the most info on installing new head unit.

most people stay stock as that is much easier.

now as to fixing your display, do you have a navigation system, what year is the tribeca?

Remove the display, disconnect it, check if there's rust or dust, clean the connectors, plug back in. For me this worked. Good luck!

Read that thread, thanks. Might be a couple of things I don't understand, but I read other related threads on other Subie sites.

My goal is to use the "Info screen" that displays outside temp, MPG, and trip info to display a backup camera. Or replace that screen, to accomplish the camera goal. Is this do-able?

I have an 06 B9 Tribeca.

My assumption is the "info screen" is incapable of composite, because it looks like the display itself is hard-coded for different data fields.

If even replacing the screen with a composite one were an option (assuming loss of trip display isn't a problem) that would give me a built in screen for the backup camera. I'm almost competent with electronics so I could use the screen for other things, like an Android or Pi car-puter.

Also, does the mod for audio-in (Ipod hack) work with the non-nav headunit?

I just got my Tribeca, and loving it especially since it is winter :-) . But my last car is much smaller... I can't parallel park like I could in my old compact!

I would suggest at least talking with an car audio/install shop about what you want, maybe they can offer you a better solution for a much cheaper price. I have seen some aftermarket systems which use a small screen embedded in the rear-view mirror for a backup camera display.

Hi. Thanks for the reply.

*may I ask why (as in technically why) you wouldn't suggest that mod?*

I see others here have successfully retrofitted a backup camera into the 06 Tribeca dash. Not certain if those were nav-equipped or not..

Note: my question isn't a rejection of your advice it is only asking what barriers/blockers make the mod unfeasible?

Is it because the type of display I have (an instrument type, apparently) is one that isn't easily replaced??thanks!
