I’ve been researching this a lot lately. So far no, nothing is released and I haven’t heard anything from any companies that make these kits about plans to release them. There are a few complications with them developing one for the first gens. The major complication is they would need t make two different configurations because of the face lift done to the dash for the later years of the first gen. The other concern is that there may not be a big enough demand. These vehicles are getting pretty old and even though they are in desperate need of an upgrade, there are far fewer on the road.

The past several days I have been studying the factory service manual and researching about how to make my own. It seems entirely possible to do it but takes a lot of effort. The HVAC controller is a CAN bus driven unit so in theory if you send the right commands over the CAN bus to emulate the output from the factory display (which is driven by the buttons on the dash) it should be possible to apply this type of retrofit just like is done for the 2nd gen kit.

Right now I’m thinking an android head unit with a CAN output might be the best place to start but I need to do more research.

This is one company that makes them

If a lot of people could get a group buy going maybe they would make a kit. At the very least everyone interested should request it to be added to their product line

I can state that even if you made it work these units have a way too dim display. Works great on a shady day or at night. But in direct sunlight I can't see mine at all. My tint is pretty dark. I returned it.
