                        Summary

                        I'm OK with computers (not an expert, but good enough to install a new computer from scratch (including HW) ).
                        I never installed a head unit by myself in my car, before this project.. .
                        I have learned a lot from you guys and I'm sure my next project will be better.
                        I got great help from my Boss in the office - (good to have such a manger !
                        I scratched my dash, I didn't cut the Bezel straight (while I installed my monitor)

                        But... I have a running computer in my car

                          Looks good, and the fact that it works is even better. Perhaps it needs a bit of refinement, but it looks like you know what you are doing. How is the screen readability in the sun?

                            that angle must be impossible to use in the sun.. i'd take it out of hte bezel and build a mount that would allow the monitor to sit straight up instead of leaned back.

                              Hey mwmcginn, The screen readability in the sun is bad .
                              Giving a score of 1 to 10 (scale), I will say during the night - the score is 10, During a cloudy day - the score is 7-8, at day time - while the sun is not impacting the screen directly the grade is 6-7. Having a direct sun light impacting the screen - the grade is ~ 3.
                              While I must admit that direct sun light has a bad influence on the screen’s visibility (as I gave a score of 3), it still some how manageable and I can see the GPS screen or navigate between songs. Not the best, but...

                              Impossible (too extreme), bad - yes.

                              I have looked at the OEM Navigation system in Honda Pilot (as provided by the company). The angle is the same as mine; I assume the brightness of their screen is better.
                              BTW while I used the DWW-6500, the screen was installed at the same angle, but the brightness was better. So I assume that with a better monitor it may work better.
