  • 1997 mondeo mk2 first carputer Kondrez

    So i have been looking into this forum for a few months and finally om going to start my own project.
    I own a ford mondeo from 1997 it's an mk2 darkpurpled and for now i have intalled some amplifiers and speakers and i have a jvc unit(avx-830) wich im going to use as a monitor.I know is not the best display to output a carpc but for now i dont have any other solution so i would have to play with the fonts resolution and size of the items. maybe later i instal a second screen with vga input.

    I live back in the netherlands and my english is not very good but im going to try to write everything in english.
    these are the specs of my carpc there are some things that i already have and some things that i am still waiting for because i have ordered.

    small factor factor case (dell optilex 790) 29.0cm x 9.3cm x 31.2cm
    cpu: i5 2400
    4gb ram ddr3
    radeon hd 6450 video card
    mini itx motherboard dell
    250gb seagate 7200rpm hdd
    slimline dvd rw
    m4 atx 250w
    usb wifi adapter 300mbps
    usb bluetooth adapter
    globalsat bu353
    ipazzport wireless keyboard
    vga to composite converter (if someone would know another solution like rgb signal for my hu(KW-AVX-830) i would like to know)
    And im going to build an lcd screen in the armrest of the back seats.

    So here is a picture with the items im going to use and how im going to use them so that you can have a an idea.

      well everything seems ok but i still need to learn a lot about the software thoug. And there is another problem since the vga to composite converter needs power to remenber its settings otherwise the image wont fill up the screen. i also dont know where i am going to put the carputer i prefer it to be in the front rather then in the back.but there is just no space onderneith the seats or behind dash but i figure out some place to put i guess. is there any free gps software just for testing the bu353 ?
