  • My first Carputer :)

    Hi friends,

    First of all i'd like to thank everybody around here who helped me directly or indirectly to make something like this.

    I made it for my Chevrolet Optra and had to make some changes to the dash, actually quite a lot, since the Lilliput 619 touchscreen was taller than the Double DIN slot i had.

    Here is the configuration at present:

    - Intel® Desktop Board D945GCLF with Integrated Intel® Atom™ Processor
    - M2 ATX DC-DC Supply
    - 1 GB RAM
    - 60GB Sata Laptop HDD
    - BU-353 GPS Receiver
    - Satguide(Specific to India, basically Destinator Technologies) GPS Maps
    - x830 TV Tuner card with FM

    I made the casing out of Aluminium, so its a little(actually a lot) rough to look at but its serving the purpose.

    System is working all well, except for a few things. Once in a while it reboots when i turn on the ignition.

    I'm running Windows XP/MediaCentre/Centrafuse, all of which are working fine.
