  • My Car UMPC - 2007 BMW 335i Coupe w/ PROcede v2

    Just wanted to start a thread to show you guys my car PC implementation. It's an Asus R2Hv with a 7" LCD touch-screen, 1GHz Pentium M, 1.25GB RAM, 80GB SATA HD, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, fingerprint scanner, and webcam, running Windows Vista Home Premium. In the glovebox, there is a small USB hub which connects to the PROcede, an ipod, and a USB cable for my phone. It is mounted using the vehicle-specific and tablet mounts from (thanks RiXst3r!) My primary functions for the device are as follows:

    - Touch-screen Navigation/GPS using StreetDeck v1.1
    - PROcede v2 software control + guage display
    - Full media center capabilities (MP3, video, dvd, pics, ipod, etc..) using StreetDeck v1.1
    - EVDO internet access via bluetooth DUN or USB cable in glovebox (USB hub)

    future plans:

    - hidden cables + hardwire
    - ODBII software + StreetDeck integration
    - backup camera
    - Valentine 1 display

    It looks like a great little setup, but it could be so much more if it was integrated better. It kills the smooth lines of the interior on your 335.

      The car from outside, WOW.

      The carputer... Same opinion as redls1bird has. Maybe some fabricating, and it would be nice..

        Is that software your running for the procede supplied direct from vishnu tuning or 3rd party program that you skinned yourself?

        sweet setup man

        EDIT - forgot to mention that is a BEAST of a car!

        now all you need to do is step into the darkside

          thanks guys... Obviously a fully integrated in-dash solution is much cleaner looking, however this car is a lease, and hacking up the dash isn't really a viable option. Also, I really like the fact that I can just take this with me as a laptop-replacement, and safely remove it from the car nightly. Also, when I dyno my car, I am able to stand ~20ft away with it and data log w/ the PROcede software.

          Ces///M3: the PROcede software came with the device from Vishnu. I just made the guages a little bigger. Stock boost is 8.8psi, I am running at ~15psi. 100+ WHP over stock Does RR work on Vista?

              Hi There....

              I just got my 2007 335i, I want to set up a computer in that like what you have set it up. The store is charging me a lot just to install it as I will get the computer on my own. Do you think you can give me some guidance on this so that i can start the install on my own? Please advise.
