  • 2007 Subaru Liberty GT CarPC Install

    Hi, I've almost completed my CarPC install in my Subaru Liberty GT Spec B tbSTi. Took me a few months to gather parts and setup the software correctly but I'm very happy with the result so far. I wanted to keep this project looking as OEM as possible and have been rather successful in that regard.

    Anyway, here's the parts used.
    MB: Asrock H77M-ITX
    RAM: 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz
    SSD: OCZ Agility3 60GB
    CPU: Intel i3 2100
    PSU: M2-ATX
    Screen: Lilliput 669 (touch, auto switching, high brightness)
    GPS: BU-353S4
    Bluetooth: ebay CSR Radio
    Software: CF 4.2.7
    OS: Windows 7 64bit


    What I started out with.

    Tight fit, but it'll work.

    Just a matter of tidying up the wiring and putting the trim back.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    This computer has so much potential. So far I've got, reversing camera, OBD monitoring, GPS, handsfree bluetooth. Not sure what other cool stuff I can get it to do

    Great work with screen install, looks very original. Did you just use body filler for the screen install or did you do any fiberglassing as well? Also, can you put some higher res photos specifically for the lcd. I'm trying to do something very similar on my friend's Legacy as well.

          Old thread but ill give it a go. Is this still working in your Legacy? I have 06 legacy with carpc installed. You say you have OBD working? what dongle you used and what SW? i have tryed with a BT OBD dongle but no info is coming to CF obd plugin as of yet. From other forums i have seen that Subaru use modded OBD protocol and maybe this might be thats why its not working for me.
          Also i notice you installed the pc hw under the stock radio? does it get hot or is it just fine?
