Kenwood screen? Is that motorized? Or did you hack up a motorized unit?
the kenwood is an indash touchscreen with dvd. the whole purpose of this carputer install is to gain visualization from playback and run gps in the near future. seeing as none of the headunits on the market are touching the winamp/windows media plugins as far as graphics it seems to be my only alternative. and a kenwood gps rings in at more than $1200.
Sweet car man, damn nice headunit too! I don't mean to insult you or the car but I think the pc may let it down big time. I can only hope you hide it well in the boot! Keep up the good work tho and post more pics!!
Current Cfg: AMD 2200+, Epox Mobo, 7" Lilliput TS, 320MB RAM, 40GB 2.5" HD, 200GB SATA, Slim Combo, ATI Radeon, SMC B/G Wireless w/ 5dB antenna, Bluetooth. S/W: RoadRunner/MapMonkey/NetStumbler. Still working on a box and PSU!
you know, i have been thinking about moving this pc to my supra more and more. i could make better use of it there, seeing as my maxima already does almost everything i need it to.
in the maxima. pros- the pc would allow me to get them cool visuals from the playback, but my main goal was to add gps to the headunit- on the cheap. cons- the resolution isnt all that, and having any type of input device in the cabin would just add clutter.
in the supra. pros- there isnt a stereo in there at all, the pc could be mounted basically anywhere other than the front seat considering the car is stripped inside. i could also use it to tune my standalone ecu if i decided to go that route. cons- im not sure how well the fuel cell will act with a pc clickity clacking electrostatic next to it. sounds dangerous.
