  • 2006 VW Jetta 2.0t

    Well, I don't want to jinx it, but it seems that my project is mostly done. All the major issues have been resolved and there is only some minor software tweaking left. First of all let me thank this forum and some members in particular (Yev, i'm looking your way) for helping me in this project. This is absolutely the best resource there is on the topic. Pictures in this post are pretty shoty, I'll update if I have time on a good weather day.

    Specs:
    Mini PC
    1.5 Celeron M processor
    512 MB DDR Ram
    40 GB 2.5" HD
    Toshiba MiniPCI wireless card
    USB Bluetooth adapter
    USB External Sound card Sounblaster Live
    MTX 440 Amplifier
    Lilliput EBY701-NP Screen
    SIR-JVC1C module with Mitch's mod (Great work Mitch, works flawlessly)
    7 port USB hub
    Lots of wires and other little things off the shelf and home made.
    BlueDevil skin

    For those wondering, the frame is the piece that took the longest time. All in all about 1.5-2 month it took me from starting to look for proper setup to finish.

    Here is the end result (the foil over the sound card is my attempt at fighting RF interference from Wifi and Bluetooth):




    Here are some screen shots:
    Firefox

    Games



    IGuidance

    Main Screen

    Sirius Radio


    First I found out that there is not enough space at the back of the glove box to fit VGA adapter and the actual VGA plug. For this I had to create a flexible adapter/extension. Here is the result:



    Once that was done and everything fit and started working, I had some shutdowns related to heat. First I tried to cut out one side and top of the case, but no help. Then I decided to cut the other half and add the fans on the side. Now the issue seems to be gone. This is what the mod looks like:







    The only two major things that are still missing in the project are:

    1. No proper support for my pocket pc phone (wm5) in neither Phonecontrol nor in RRMobile yet. So I can't use it with my volksputer as yet.
    2. I can't get the damn screen to auto turn on. I have one of those lilliputs that are like Ex-Audio clones (EBY701). Tried all codes and tricks from this board with no luck. Lilly people really need to get their act together and make it easy. Oh well, I'll think of something (suggestions are welcome )

    nice.

    im attempting to do the same thing.
    the only problem i have is how to turn on the AMP.

    I have a 2006 Golf GTI. I cant work out how to turn on he dam AMP. I think it gets turned on via the CAN bus??

    anyone ideas on this?
    do you have a stock amp?

      I have an aftermarket one that turn on with a remote (ACC) wire. My car came with basic radio (VE) so it didn't have an amp.

              Congratulations, well done

              i am finishing the upholstery, for the seats, and doors, and decided to go with have the rear speakers in the back rack, rather than in the passenger doors

              fabricating that one too,

              I also managed to fit 19 HDTV monitor on the trunk lid, but that's just an excess to get me more sponsors.

              i finally got a garage to work in, my friend went on vacation, and gave me his garage for 2 weeks, that would speed up my progress. Cause i got kicked by my condo boars association for indirectly killing my neighbors with fumes

              later,

              Yev

                It is the 2.0T, right?...same engine...only difference between the GLI is suspension, trim and seats...

                  That's a nice car! Good work so far, but if I were you I'd work a little more on the screen bezel...center it, sand it a bit more until all the curves are gone, and paint it with a mate paint, that glossy effect doesn't look stock.

                    In Canada I think the suspension is the same as well. I think the only difference is seats, trim, steering wheel and cluster.

                      I know that bezel needs work. But this is the first time i did this and it took me such a long time to do that I don't think I want to do anything about it until prolly next spring. Matte finish would be better for sure, but I think this bezel has seen so many sandings that it'll have holes in it soon So I'd have to get new parts again.

                        That's pretty impresive for a first time! Congrats!

                            That's a nice install but I'm not crazy about the display frame. The right side looks wider than the left and really not crazy about the finish. I think a flat black would have looked better. Also, copy the new Hot Weather icons (BlueDevil skin) over to the RR folder, they look nicer.


                            Good Work

                              Thanks. I agree about the frame's finish. It's wider on the right because that's where buttons used to be and the VGA connector goes. If I made it even it wouldn't fit with the connector attached. As it is, I already had to break pieces of the connector off to make it fit.
