        well... pretty much all available space in the dash will be the LCD in portrait mode using fancy software to have a 768*1024 resolution, and I still have to figure where the computer will be housed...

        I have to get a spare of the plastics of my corolla to work on it without having half a dashboard for the mean time - I have lots of other things to do and this cool hobby cannot get my attention all the time so I cannot do it all at once.

                I'm almost done with my install.

                This weekend I got the wires in and tested the whole system but I'm shorting somewhere, the fuse for the 12V switched circuit to my ITPS keep blowing. I beleive I may not have gorunded the case right. Hopefully everything is OK and the PS and ITPS are OK.

                BTW: I work in VSL

                    Cool i'm living in terrebonne (rive-nord) and i'm planning to put a computer in my car.

                    VWMAN, i would like to know if your Morex 3688 fits in the car radio slot?

                    And did you bought the case and the via motherboard in montreal?

                    Je parle français aussi, peut être même un peu mieux que l'anglais

                      ya pas beaucoup de places a montreal pour acheter du materiel custom pour ordinateur, encore moins pour mettre dans un char... good luck.

                        Ca ne me dérange pas trop que ça soit pas à mtl même mais si je peux trouver seulement des sites web canadien pour commender mes choses, j'aimerais mieux ça parce qu'ailleurs il faut que ça passe la douane et ça met plus de temps à arriver.

                        Pour l'instant j'ai trouvé une motherboard pas trop chère (enfin je pense...) à 165.60$ CAN.

                        Here's the link for canadian people who wants to buy a EPIA-V10000A for 165.60$CAN:
                        http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...NOLOGIES%20INC.

                        I'm now looking for a cheap case (to fit in a radio slot) to order in canada

                        If somebody know a good place...

                          Well got all my parts from http://www.koonline.net/
                          Except the Lilliput, I got it from C A R P O D . C A, but do not buy anything from him this guy.
                          He is the worts person I have ever delt with, he lies and takes your money...He still owes me money for an undelivered product.

                          mp3car.com has an on-line store you can get the screen from them at a decent price.

                          The morex case does not fit in a DYN slot, the case is 10" deep. My DYN is about 6" deep.

                          I put my case in the glove box, I'll have pictures soon. BTW my install is 99% complete, woohoo!!!!

                          Guys we should organize a meet and if you need any help with your projects I'm glad to give it to you. You can learn from my mistakes...

                            Yes I do, but I recentely installed the case in my glove box and these last few days it's been hot, not has hot as it will be. But the case stayed pretty cool. I'm not too worried about winter yes it will get to -45 but I think the PC will be OK.
