THOR #5822
2016 Thor Tuscany 45AT Radio Upgrade

I have a 2016 Thor Tuscany 45AT that was equipped with an XiteSolutions XSG2NA-X2DM/L Infotainment Center.

I believe that it only has two modules, the 10.4 inch display with touchscreen and membrane pushbutton strip alongside the LCD display, and the "head module" with DVD/CD player.

There is also a camera switch box that feeds the video input from the rear and two mirror cams (L & R)..

The membrane pushbutton panel is failing, which makes it difficult to switch between functions (PWR, MENU, DIM, VOL+, VOL-, NAV, FAV and MUTE).

This unit has been discontinued by the manufacturer.

I am looking for a new system from another manufacturer with the same functions, or more.

Has anyone replaced their Xite system with another?

Could you please provide me with information on the manufacturer and model number?

I will be replacing the unit myself.

Photos of the display and head unit are provided.

I look forward to your input!

THOR #5822
Garmin RV-IN1501 Infotainment System

I have discovered that Thor is currently offering the above referenced GPS navigation/entertainment system in its new RVs. However, nobody will tell me if the new system can be easily retrofitted to a 2016 Thor Tuscany 45AT.

If you want one, you will have to buy it through a Thor dealer. Garmin does not sell these direct. Use this link for more information.

https://www.garmin.com/en-US/p/628303

I don't have access to my coach right now, so I cannot remove the bezel from the dash where the Xcite electronics module is currently mounted.

Has anyone taken this part of the dash apart and seen what kind of structure is behind there? Will it accept a double DIN electronics chassis?

It shouldn't be a problem putting the display module on the dash where the Xcite display is located. I looked at it earlier and it appears that it is surface mounted with two screws that protrude behind the surface. You have to pop the fibreglas dash cover in order to see what I'm talking about.

The Garmin website shows the display mounted in portrait orientation, but they have told me that their software allows for changing it to landscape orientation.

I would very much appreciate input from other Thor owners.
