Either disconnect the TC switch, move switch to buttons above (you can get the small TC buttons, but rare).

But the Carin system is old. Much easier to use a portable nav system such as tomtom/navman/garmin etc

I agree. My car Elite has the Carin as factory fit, and although the system does work & gets you to where-ever, the newer systems are far easier to use and have a much clearer display. Sat-nav has come along somewhat in 7 years.

This is my solution:

Make one of these.




Attach a Tom Tom One.




Stick to dashboard screen.




So much easier than retro fitting a satnav.

Edit.  I usually stick it over the tacho, so I can still see all the warnings and indications.
After all, what use is a tacho in a non-manual 2.2, right?

does this mean that you can change the TC switch next to the radio for a small one that goes in the row of switches?  This is a question that I have been meaning to ask but not got round to it.

If you can simply change the switch, that would be great.  Is it the same connector for both?

Its likely you'll have to move the wiring as well. The switches are different - the small switch is much less common...

Is the TC buttom the soft touch type fitted to the later pre-facelift or the rippled type fitted to the early type omega's.
