Very nicely done!! Just a thought, maybe you could paint the whole dash piece the same color, instead of the black frame around the screen. Again, just a thought. Nice idea for the bracket at the back too. Does the screen rattle or move at all now??
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!
thanks, the screen doesn't move, it is fixed whit bracket and a little of glue. This frame visible in photo don't exist now, I've removed because doesn't perfect, now I will made a frame in plastic, whit liquid plastic for a result like an original frame and some color of the rest of car.
I've unmount the original HiFi, I've install a Radio/Tv card cinergy and connect the audio out of the motherboard to an amplifier.
The next step is to add a soundblaster usb audio card whit digital out at 24 bit and this out connect to a PhonixGold Amplifier R5.1 whit 24bit decoder for a true 5.1 sound in my car.
For the steering wheel command I will buy a irda adapter for about 50,00eur and send the infrared signal to a serial interface like Animax for command the RR interface. Vol+ Vol- Track, ecc. now working whit a normal TV remote.
I've an Epia10000 motherboard whit integrated sound card, his sound suck! There isn't bass! Don't sound well. For this I've plan to add a sound blaster, usb for comodity or PCI if you have 1 avalaible. The sound blaster 24bit sound very well!
What sound card / motherboard do u have?
But your car is some to my in photo? Where are you live?
I have an epia M10000 LVDS motherboard with onboard sound. I live in the UK. Yes my car is the same as the one in your pictures I would like to put a Touchscreen tft in my car and was going to go for the motorized option in the DIN slot. but after seeing yours, it looks great. How much did it cost you to get it molded ? parts etc ? rough price ? I can get motorized screen for about $500.
This Lilliput that I've mount cost about 250,00 eur in Italy. Whit 250,00eur add I've buy the motherboard and the PowerSupply.
After this there is the cost for DIMM, 2,5" HD, and other component, cable... ecc.
What motor and HP have your car? There is a Diesel?
I have a 1.6I Megane 5 Door Hatch. Petrol version. I was just trying to weigh up the cost on the TFT. do you think it would be better to get screen from www.digitalww.com or go through what you have done and put screen in ?
Then I would have to buy amp, amp lead kit ? Whereas I could just plug in monitor ?
This depends by you. If you, like me, prefer to see the LCD screen already, like the new and beatiful car like BMW or MERCEDES the installation like me is OK, If you want to use the carpc only for GPS or TV and sound whit original HiFi car the motorized solution is right.
if you accept my solution and eliminate the original HiFi car you must will buy an amplifier and a new speaker kit for the new power...
