  • Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep CAR2PC interface beta testing

    Guys,
    I've almost finished developing interface for the new Chrysler OEM radios ( Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep ). The boards will be hear in about 1 month ( mid June ) and I'd like to ask you to participate in beta testing for these units.

    What is it ?
    CAR2PC interface allows PC to "communicate" with the stock headunit.
    It will play sound through the stock speakers, you will get control over your digital data and can display track information on your stock display.
    You will be able to assign any program/action on your PC when HU buttons are pressed.

    Why ?
    CAR2PC allows you to use your CarPC in a blind fashion without even using the touchscreen saving you time and money for installation. You still can have touchscreen but just use it for visual things like GPS or search only.
    You can place PC anywhere you want and "talk" to it from the very ergonomic and slick headunit keybord.

    Can I see the demo ?
    See the demo for VW Car2PC adapter: movie on my test bench (3Mb).

    Which frontend can use it ?
    Car2PC adapter has support for WinAmp, Windows Media Player, MWI and RR
    Here you can download these plugins/links:

    For all interested the CAR2PC interface library for Windows/Linux available in sf.net CVS. Just askk me if you're interested.

    Which HU it supports ?

    Chrysler 2002-2005 Concord
    Chrysler 2002-2004 LHS

    2. Attach the adapter to your stock headunit (or CD changer cable in the trunk) and PC. Most original harness are included !
    3. Run the PC and get the sound from it on your speakers instantly after you switch you HU in CD changer mode !

    Can it serve as a AUX adapter ?

        GM and Ford are pins in the butt. They have so many different connectors and other stuff so I am afraid to even go there
        Honestly GM is interesting and I'll take a look at it. Later...

            I do not know if it will work in 300C. But connector looks the same.
            I will run beta testing in 2-3 weeks. Be around please.

              Where do I sign?

              Will be installing in a 05 Grand Caravan SXT. I believe the head unit is a RB1. It has the square 10 pin socket on the back for adding a cd changer etc. Also has steering wheel controls.

                  The 300C, Charger and Magnum are all CAN bus instead of Chrysler's PCI bus, so a different interface is needed.

                          I am working on a project currently that will allow you to hook a car PC to any stereo deck that supports XM. The deck can be stock or aftermarket. I have a few bugs in the code that I am still working out, but I will be posting it once it is done. I will have it finished hopefully in the next few months.

                          I dont mean to steal your posting here Im just trying to see how much interest there is in this sort of thing. It looks like you have invested a lot of time and money to get as far as you have.
