  • 2007 Hyundai Sonata

    I recently upgraded from an 05 Elantra to an 07 Sonata. The one thing though, was I missed my Carputer. The main thing which made this install difficult is the "premium audio" that came with the car.

    This required by-passing the factory amp in order to get direct wiring to the speakers, which are pretty good. Hyundai has a great tech website, and had the wiring diagrams to make the job somewhat easier. I removed the factory amp and put my amps in it's place.

    Now, on to the computer install. I purchased the EBY701-NP 7" screen to use with this screen bezel from Korea (http://dreamka4u.com/m_mall_detail.p...83&ps_goid=83).

    The rest of the components came from my Elantra install:

          Just showing the SlingPlayer. I can watch TV via wireless Internet (Verizon Wireless Broadband).

          I'll post more details and pictures of the install over the next couple of days. I wish they gave you more than 5 pictures at a time...

              Very NICE install! I have an 06 Sonata and I'm glad someone put a carputer in, I was gonna try and do it but I really have the slightest idea how (actually I have a basic idea).. please, if you can, give me the info I need, I'd appreciate it. It's either a carputer or a VERY EXPENSIVE double din headunit for me, but I'd rather go with the carputer. Thanks!
              First Sonata on 22"s, that's me!

                    Agreed, very clean. I would like to know what FE it is also.

                      I'm using mediaengine. I've also dabbled with roadrunner with the new freedom skin, but I keep coming back to mediaengine because of its simplicity and stability.

                      I modified one of the skins somewhat to put in the Hyundai logo, etc.

                            Can you post the link to the Hyundai tech website?
                            I've signed up under "my hyundai" and I can't get any wiring info.

                            Thanks, and very nice install!
