          I just ordered the final components.

          1. AGU FUSE 20A for Carputer Power
          2. USB Repeater/Extension 16'' for Lilliput
          3. VGA Extension 15'' for Lilliput

          Hopefully I'll be able to install the screen while I wait for these item to arrive.
          I think I'll cry when I dremel the holes for the screen

              Looks good so far. Mounting the VoomPC in the trunk? It fits nicely under the front seat as well, but less worries about dirt/water if its in the trunk.

                In my case, I would worry more about dirt/water under my seats :P

                I'm from Puerto Rico = Beautiful beaches = sand in car.

                Besides, I usually have a mess of stuff inside the car... particularly in the back seats.

                Also, my amp is back there... might as well run power near that location.

                I'm wondering if I have to use groung on the AMP REMOTE of my M2-ATX....

                    Yes. Already tested with laptop.

                      Where exactly is the gps mounted? I was having problems with mine, the windshield seemed to attenuate the signal a bit. Would work great for a while (full sats), then just cut out. Seemed to be an ionization effect in the windshield. Ended up putting my GPS on the hood.

                        The GPS has a magnet inside. It's on the metal plate (roof) of the trunk.

                              Well, I just tested it today. Everything seems to be working ok.

                              Next, I'll test the GPS... still trying to figure out what'll do with the screen.
