  • Placement of the HW

    ok heres the deal i wanna put my carputer in the front of the car ie glovebox or under a seat but there isnt enough room, and i dont want to drill out the glove box therefore im thinking putting it in the boot,however i want to use a touch screen computer can i just use an extension cable for the usb cable and vga cable to the touch screen? thanks

    Yes, you can do that.
    For your own sanity, run the power wires down one side of the car and the signal cables down the other side.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

          What kind of car? I would look for guides on how to disassemble the car, like an edmunds guide. It should be easy enough to run them down the side and the carpet cover jam thingy.

            I did my car without cutting, drilling, splicing anything thats factory and can be 100% returned to stock.

            Just plan it out well and it will pay off later, dont rush it.
