Looks awesome Greg!! Love your stang interior, and that "my color" dash option.
Hopefully you get the GPS issue solved, probably like a loose connection or something.
Zach, I am always around here, best way to get a hold of me quickly is email.

To get your order in production you can paypal me.
In any event I had 3 orders come in right before xmas and I am working on your guys chassis and will have them out as soon as possible. They are all cut, just need bending and final finishing. This week has been crazy busy for me with holiday obligations. Not to mention my shop has been closed over the holidays so the orders are taking a bit longer than usual. Its all good though, you guys can start your 2008 off right with a quality carPC build :)
I knew when I ordered it would take a bit. I should have ordered it Christmas eve, just to be an @$$. Quality takes time! and I have patience.
Frigor, do you have any links or good reference material for those of us who don't know what a windows shell is?
...shotgun shell, clam shell....
shells and cheese...
I used to date a girl names Mitchelle...
I just wanted to spread a little knowledge on a particular route I went for web access and gps receiver.
The U727 from Sprint is a mobile internet/gps/usb thumb drive.
First and foremost the U727 is a usb data card which provides fast and user friendly access .....and when I say user friendly I mean you plug it into your pc and it will automatically install all needed software (lite version of sprints connection manager) onto the computer. Once installed all you do is click the "go" button and you're off and surfing the web.
Second the U727 is a GPS receiver!!! I didn't even know it would work with iGuidance until I was trouble shooting my GPS issue and noticed COM Port 8 was being occupied by the U727 GPS. So I go into iGuidance and switch the port to 8 and then to connection manager and start the GPS and after a quick lock onto a GPS sat I was in. I go back into iGuidance and "wa la" it shows my current position.
Third this little device accepts a micro SD card which turns the device into a usb thumb drive and everyone knows what that is so I don't need to go into any further detail.
This little device goes everywhere I go because you never know when you might need to jump on the internet and it's so small and compact it's not a hassle at all. I use this as my primary internet connection at home to via a cradlepoint wireless router. Well worth the $200 I spent on it, although if you don't have a current Sprint account and sign up for a two year contract you can get it for like 0.01 on eBay.
Hope this information is helpful with your build.
I am posting some pictures of the device itself and a picture of the connection manager software which shows the internet connection along with the gps connection. You can run the software with just one running or combined.
I will try and post some pictures of mine in action soon.
Thx for the info Greg, I was considering something similar using AT&T service. Would be really nice to be online all the time in the car.
Just wanted to let mp3car members: supyo & smp4488 know that your chassis are done and here is a pic of them. They will be shipped out mon. morning Thanks again guys for the orders!
That's tight man
at least all you need to know is that in regedit you can change quite safely this key:
Just remember that once you do it the system will boot directly in your frontend, without loading the Explorer... this means you will have no task bar, no desktop, no icons, no frontend. If you want to open a task you have to press <Ctrl><Alt><Canc> and from the Task Manager -> File -> New Task (Run...)Code:
Or maybe (better) you can add in yuour frontend link section every thing you will need, including Task Manager (taskmgr.exe), Control Panel (control), and any submenu you want:
The system will start all the services tho... but in half time^^Code:
Control panel tool Command
Accessibility Options control access.cpl
Add New Hardware control sysdm.cpl add new hardware
Add/Remove Programs control appwiz.cpl
Date/Time Properties control timedate.cpl
Display Properties control desk.cpl
FindFast control findfast.cpl
Fonts Folder control fonts
Internet Properties control inetcpl.cpl
Joystick Properties control joy.cpl
Keyboard Properties control main.cpl keyboard
Microsoft Exchange control mlcfg32.cpl
(or Windows Messaging)
Microsoft Mail Post Office control wgpocpl.cpl
Modem Properties control modem.cpl
Mouse Properties control main.cpl
Multimedia Properties control mmsys.cpl
Network Properties control netcpl.cpl
NOTE: In Windows NT 4.0, Network
properties is Ncpa.cpl, not Netcpl.cpl
Password Properties control password.cpl
PC Card control main.cpl pc card (PCMCIA)
Power Management (Windows 95) control main.cpl power
Power Management (Windows 98) control powercfg.cpl
Printers Folder control printers
Regional Settings control intl.cpl
Scanners and Cameras control sticpl.cpl
Sound Properties control mmsys.cpl sounds
System Properties control sysdm.cpl
Try... you can easely roll back.
Thanks for posting this great information, I am going to try it this weekend and I will post my results. My frontend already has the option to run the taskmanager but I may have to add the control panel.
blk02si thanks for all your help. I recieved my case today and will start posting pics this weekend when i start the building process.
