  • Nexus 7 TruckPC 05 Tundra Install

    Its been quite some time since I've posted anything on this site but I'm doing a new install and find my self with a lot of time between buying parts so I threw together a website and now I'm looking for comments/suggestions

      Looks like an awesome project. I recently had this setup, using the same USB SDR dongle. I ended up getting a high pitch whine that I just couldn't get rid of no matter what I did. I also didn't get the best radio reception even with going directly to the car's antenna. I assume you are using SDR touch to run the setup. Hopefully with the updates he has been putting out you won't experience this problem. Timur's USB Rom is out of this world...I mean it's just amazing. I threw a couple of USB DACs at it and they all seemed to work. I just had some weird popping sounds that I blame on poor grounding on my part. And his start up and shut down implementations have been flawless. Ultimately I think I rushed the install a bit which led to all my noise problems. Looks like you are taking your time so hopefully you will experience more success than I did. I eventually "gave up" and wen't for a simpler setup utilizing a sony head unit and their new app remote (see signature). I am still using Timers USB Rom though and it has not failed me yet with start up, charging, and shutdown. Good luck and looking forward to your results!

        Hey, sorry for the late reply I've been pretty busy, and thanks for your reply. I haven't had any real whining issues yet though I don't get anything for reception, I'm going to try and get a FM amp but if that doesn't work I'll just deal with what I got now. The radio is not a priority for me, as long as it works at the drive in I wont really care. I have yet to see any bad reviews on Timur's ROM so naturally I can not wait to get a n7 and put his ROM on it and get it in my truck, I hate bills haha. I wish I had that awesome PSU you are using that thing could almost run my whole planed setup! Ill be looking forward to how well the bluetooth streaming works with your setup as well as hands free and what not.

        Thanks and good luck

        P.S. I updated the site.
