        Well, Priority mail tape i have plenty, and it's strong. Also free... The phone is my cellphone, and i used it for internet. (verizon) Was very good. It'll be a part of the system...

            Nice work so far. How are you connecting your mobile to the PC? Bluetooth? What are you mounting it all on, it looks like the side of an old pc. Are you going to mould in the Xenarc into the dash?

            Keep up the good work!

              I bought a USB cable off of ebay fo it, and use Verizon Mobile Office to connect to the net. Uses only minutes. Eventually the Xenarc is going to be mounted. For now, it's just gonna stick there. You'll see. Thanks for the cheers. Really need it now...

                almost done. Ran wire from battery to the back, also got the AUX in for my alpine, and wired that to the back, have the rikaline GPS module on th trunk, nicely in the middle. also have the wireless usb atapter up under the back winow. everything is wired up nicely, and the pc has it's place, when the Xenarc dies (sort-of). waiting for zip-lock to reply, ans RMA it back. so beside the little glitch with the xenarc it's done...

                      Please do post more pics. That Xenarc would look so sweet in the dash, that's if you'll mold it in. Plenty of room.
