Nice job! I'm getting close to completing my install, but have chosen the no HU route. Amp will be sitting where your computer is and the PC will live under the passenger seat. I just finished replacing the rear speakers today, I'm not sure the wizards at acura could have made it any harder
Love the dampers and the fan cover.
Where did you put your gps receiver?
Carputer installed!!! Nlited XP+Minlogon, EpiaM10k, 512mb, Seagate 40 gig 2.5" HD, FM Dlink usb radio, DWL122 USB Wifi, XMD1000 tuner, PT5071 6 amp regulator, Xenarc 700TSV, and 1 ikea key box.
I put the GPS receiver right in the middle of the windshield (on the dash).... i get at least 10 or so satellites in site most of the time. Yeah, i gotta agree with you, the integra was definately NOT made for a carpc!!! in fact, its not even made for an LCD since the A/C controls come outwards. Oh well... the good thing is that i can always move this carpc to my next car in a year or two. (hopefully a new 2006 BMW 4-Series Coupe)
How long ago did you order that motorized housing? I'm still waiting to find out what's going on with the one I pre-ordered months ago. It seems like everytime someone mentions how consistently terrible Armen is with customer service, someone pops up and says "Oh, don't worry! He's consistently terrible with customer service!" It's like telling someone who just got stabbed "Don't worry, you'll bleed now!" But I'm not trying to make this a "where the **** is Armen" thread. I'm just wondering when the motorized housing was ordered.
if i dont want it to hit my AC controls.... yup, thats the farthest back it can go... (my next car will be more touchscreen friendly! I also just made a power and reset switch which i will post pics of very shortly! stay tuned....
I gotta say man.. when I saw this post and looked at those pics I was for sure I was going to see some riced out piece of ****.. But I'm very pleasantly surprised.. that's a really nice setup you got going there..
What does GPS service usually cost anyway?
Btw, how does that 7" screen REALLY look... I mean I'm worried about going with a smaller screen.. I can easily mount an 8" screen into 2 of my DIN slots and make it look really nice but I'm just so fricken afraid that it won't look good.. I plan to run windows desktop a lot.. however, that carmedia software **** looks pretty good with a touchscreen setup.. just makes me worried that I'll have to have everything so huge in order to see it..
With a bit of dremel'n and bondo work I could get a 10" screen to fit in my DIN slot area.. gotta remove the ashtray of course and cut into some of the plastic around the whole DIN slot area.. but it would look pretty sick I think.
