  • Guino's Mazda RX-8 :)

    Well, it's about time I posted some details of my latest install..

    Had some delays to get some parts, and with my TS going bad then cracking a touch-screen placing it too tight, but finally got it all worked out..

    CarPC Setup:

    -MP3CAR Transflective LCD Touchscreen (Replaced OEM LCD -- IR remote works normally)
    -Pundit-R Asus Book Size PC P4 2.2Ghz, 512Mb, 100Gb (in Trunk)
    -Sirius SAT Radio with MitchJS interface board (in Trunk)
    -Cinergy 600 FM/TV (No TV antenna currently -- still have stock HU)
    -Rikaline 6033 Bluetooth GPS
    -Slot Load DVD player/CD Recordable
    -PIE Aux Mod for Mazda (for Aux In)
    -Car2PC Adapter for USB interfacing with HU
    -Temp Sensors to measure Inside, Outside & Trunk (PC) Temperature
    -ATI Remote Control (RF)
    -WiFi (PCI) & Bluetooth (USB)
    -Inverter under the hood (Yeah, I know -- I just wanted it simple to wire)
    -RideRunner
    -Phoco for my Cingular 8125 (Thanks Zorro!)

    There's nothing so new about the RX8 I guess. Pretty much Stock, Bose Sound, Navigation (now replaced).

    Here are some Pics (2 Videos Below too):






    And here are some Videos (Sorry, google reduces the video quality)...

    Feel Free to ask more details,

      Nope, I asked a friend to build me a plexi-glass case for the computer in the trunk, it fits well under the "recess" space in there, the wires just go under my spare tire, so it's not that visible, but don't have much trunk space (well, never had anyway).. I'll try to take a pic and post it.

          Looks good Guino, guessing the skin was a quick 'addition' with it having the Honda logo.

                Hahaha, everybody gives me hell about that honda logo, it was just an early picture... I'll take some more now, but the videos have the right logo

                @Enforcer: Thanks, still learning english after 7 and half-years of it

                @JC-S60: No HQCT, I received one for testing/dev and it only has sound on the right speaker (broken I guess), plus I already had the Cinergy 600 in place anyway.

                @-zip-: I guess I better

                          how did you get the monitor to flip up with KOEO?

                          and then flip down again?

                            Very nice install, Guino. Looks clean with nothing appearing "out of place." Gotta agree that the Honda emblem throws a nice wrench into the machine. Great looking car though!
