  • 2006 Mazda 3 In-Dash CarPC Install.

    Well, my setup is finally coming together and looking more and more like it's complete.


    Here's my current setup (also in my sig, heh):

    - VoomPC I Mini-ITX case
    - Commell LV-677 DC-DC Motherboard
    - M2-ATX 160w PSU
    - Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 1.66GHz 667MHz FSB 2MB L2
    - 1GB (2x 512MB) DDR2 667 RAM (i believe it's Kingston)
    - Dynamix 8" Touch screen
    - AuxMod
    - Audio line loopback filter (filter out noise on audio line)
    - Holux GR-213 GPS receiver
    - Targus 4 port USB hub
    - My cell phone as internet (Sanyo PM-8200 w/ Sprint PCS Service)

    Future Plans:

    - OBD II interface\setup
    - Permanent Wifi connection.

    here are some pictures i took, it's a mixture of different times when i took it, the water look is the most recent ones.

    Click here to go to my Villagephotos.com photo gallery. (There's 3 pages of photos on there.)

    I do have a 1 question though, does anyone know how, if at all, to get an actual 10, 20, 30, 40 etc MPH picture behind the speed on my GPS stats page? it's just a blank white box.


    let me know what you think, comments\suggestion\questions of your own (even if you don't know the answer to my question.)

    thanks

            Can't access error - might be the network here, maybe I'll try it elsewhere

              does your network have some type of filtering or accessability restrictions or is it full unrestricted\filtered access to the internet?

                  that's exactly the one i have.

                  it's kind of a pain though, it's only mounted with industrial strength 3M double sided tabe used in car installation stuff. i nor anyone in the bestbuy mobile install bay at the store i used to work at could help me mount it permanently because the backplate of the screen is like a very thin aluminum and has holes literally the size of o that.

                    Question on ignition sense connection

                    Hi,
                    I like your install. I'm doing something similar myself using the Japanparts box and the VoomPC-2. The M2-ATX supports an ignition sense connection. Where did you get this? Did you splice cables from the HU?

                    Thanks,
                    AQ

                      the PSU should have a lead on the board that goes to the ignition power line on your vehicle.
