              Good work - I've got a '2 aswell - great cars!
              Are you on the IMOC list perchance?
              As you say - space is at a premium in these things :/
              Where have you put the GPS mouse for best reception without being in the way?

              Here's a sample picture, there's tons more on the website, and although it's complete, I've still got much more to do. Currently used for sat nav, movies and of course MP3s I plan to improve the interface, add more features such as cameras, security interface, obdII and better car integration.

                      It's in th emiddle of the dashboard at the moment, but it seems to work under the seat (!) so it might end up there!

                        It's a merconnet screen, non-vga using composite video at the moment, I will be changing it when I have some spare money for something better, however!

                              I have a 91 MR2-T and I've been wondering how I can fit a 7 inches LCD into the console. I'd probably want it to be where the double din is at. Any of you have any ideas or pictures? Thanks!
