      Very nice set up RobertoLV, congratulations. Where did you get your tiny keyboard? Can you tell me what model it is? Do you really think it's safe to hide it under money?
      Carputer Haiku (thanks Ian Hughes)
      Serious error.
      All shortcuts have disappeared.
      Screen. Mind. Both are blank.

          It's not a tiny keyboard. It's just a really big dollar.

            Hi, Thanks for your comments,

            Big dollar?? hehehe, nice observation, I bought the Mini Keyboard in Fry's Computer, $25 Dollars, no bad.

            I have a little problem with the Internal Bluetooth, in ocassion detect my GPS and PDA and another ocassions nothing, very bad, I'll buy a USB Bluetooth.

            Next Step:
            EDVO USB

                Looks nice, but why do you have the ground loop isolator?

                A ground loop isolator is not a fix for ground loops, it is simply a tool to help you find where they are so you can fix them. Now that you know which component is causing the noise, you should reground it to a different point that won't cause a voltage differential between the ground points. Then you will have no more noise, and no more ground loop isolator.

                    Well I use the ground loop isolator to XM Radio, becuase before to use the XM Radio Give a very bad Noise when I runned my car, so this ground loop isolator is so easy to connect One side is the RED and WHITE Input, the Other Side RED and WHITE Output, NO POWER CONNECT and NO MORE NOISE, is excellent.

                      Thanks for the Offer, but I'm in Las Vegas.

                      Thanks Man.

                        I know what a ground loop isolator is and how they work. They are designed to be hooked up easily because the idea is that you only hook them up temporarily. You hook them to each component and when the noise goes away, you know which one it's coming from.

                        You could have a ground loop, you could have EMI or radiated noise, who knows. If you want to do an install right, eliminating noise is part of the process. Using a ground loop isolator is just a band-aid for the problem, it's not a solution, it just covers it up.

                        Never let power and signal leads cross or run near each other, if they must cross do so at a 90 degree angle, use ground points with the same electrical potential, use ground points that are as close as possible from the device being grounded, don't use factory wiring since they are often linked to many other electronics in the car, crimp/solder connections properly, etc. All these things are methods for properly installing a system so that you won't get any noise.

                          Thank You spoonraker, I'll to try to do that (everything about system cars is new for me).

                            Very nice. They keyboard looks like a Logitech Knockoff minus the PS2 Controller part.


                            What case are you using for the computer?

                              Hi Microchip, well the Case and all the parts is from Lilliput Company, they give me AIO (Monitor & CPU), so I just installed in my Car.

                              Roberto.
