      Software

      What kind of interface software you use for the CARPC?

          Looks awesome. Where did you mount the PC?

            Nice job! Looks like a very clean install.

            I am interested in where you mounted the PC as well.

                The PC is mounted in the boot in the CD changer compartment.

                Just a few more details for anyone that's wondering...

                I opted for a CD player for sound output for three reasons.
                1. This is my first attempt at in car connectivity so i kept it simple and avoid the hassle of an amplifier which i may still consider in the future as i'm learning more with time.

                2. In the event of my PC failure, i can always revert to the traditional CD player

                3. The ash tray is of no use to me as i don't smoke and i was willing to try my first ever fabrication which in my opinion prove a success.

                Thanks for all your comment.

                  Hi,

                  That install looks great, but it left me with a couple questions.

                  Which monitor did you go with?

                  And

                  What is the name/where did you get the dash kit that the monitor is installed into? It looks very clean.

                  I will soon be starting on an x-type install like yours, and can only hope it looks that good

                      Great! Thanks.

                      One last question, do you find yourself happy with the brightness of that screen during the day?

                        Oh yes! i have that problem in the sunshine but not very often as sunny spells are not for long in the UK. There are transreflective screen which could solve that problem
