As the news of Brainiac spreads we’ve received many requests to bring the 10.1″ snap-in kit to a variety of different dashboards. The vehicles that are requested range all the way from older vehicles to brand new ones rolling out of the dealership. We even receive many requests from those who are performing resto-mods or full on custom car builds.
We realize that there are only so many hours in the day to add new vehicles into our 10.1″ snap-in kit product line up. Also, there are so many different years, makes and models on the road today making it difficult to cover everyone. So as we continue to create more Brainiac snap-in installation kits, we are also making a Retrofit Kit available.
The Brainiac Retrofit Kit will include the same components as the 10.1″ snap-in kit (screen, buttons, computing unit, OBDII cable, wiring harness), but instead of plastics built specifically for a target vehicle, it will include a universal screen cradle that will allow you to build your own custom installation (Climate controls not included). The screen can be positioned in either landscape or portrait orientation to best suit your dashboard.
While we know this route isn’t for the faint of heart, the ability to use off-the-shelf 3D modeling tools, 3D printing and other traditional means of fabrication allow you to create our own integrated dashboard.
The Retrofit Kit will be priced at $999 USD as a midpoint between the 7″ double-din unit and a 10.1″ snap-in kit. You’ve asked for it, we’ve listened and are making it happen. Now it’s up to you. Create a great custom installation and share it with us so that we can show the rest of the world your innovative work
Don’t worry, we’ll be adding as many vehicles to our 10.1″ snap-in kit line up as possible, we’re just enabling others to do so as well 🙂
