    Hi Richpu,

    Sorry for digging up such an old thread! I have just purchased a Vectra C and am interested in installing a car computer. Congrats on yours - it's fantastic! I was just wondering if you could post some more details on the wiring side of things. The putting together of the computer and the screen is no problem - it's the connecting it to get power from the car and wiring the computer from the boot to the dash. Anything you could post would be really helpful. Thanks!

    Jer

    Hi,

    The main power for the PC was taken from the main fuse box on the nearside of the boot using an M1-ATX. as for the cabling for the screen etc, this was run down the offside of the car, under the trim with the carpet, there are cable run boxes under the carpet that these were fed through.

    the main cables were the VGA and USB cables which were both 5 metre
    the USB was 1 cable to a 4 port hub, this runs the touchscreen, Keyboard, Bluetooth.

    let me know if you need more detail

    Regards,
    RichPu

    Same as mine nearly - except you have your fuses in the rear and a bit more space...
