  • double indash (2x Lilliput 7" motorized) in Golf IV

    Hi there!

    This is my first post here, although I've been reading mp3car.com for long time ... I usually participate in a Spanish forum www.solocarputer.com and I just wanted to say hello to everyone (cool forum and super-useful information, guys!) and to present my little experiment here.

    When I first thought about installing a carpc, I didn't like the idea of having a little (7" or 8") monitor and tried to install a normal desktop TFT, but failed miserably; there was no room to place such a thing, it would be _very_ notorious from the outside, and it wouldn't even look good from inside.

    The solution proposed was very simple: multiply

    At first it was intended to be used as a simple multi-monitor carpc; but now I'm into using it to be able to run both Linux and Windoze at the same time, using a spare laptop.

    ( Again, thanks to everyone for your contribution to the "carpc science" )

    Cheers!

    That's wacky, but cool....
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

            when shifting, how do you not hit the bottom screen with your knuckles?

              get a pickup truck shifter. And if that isn't long enough, get one of the shifter from a semi.

                longer? you want a shorter shifter so that it goes under the lcd. A longer one will just make you hit it sooner but at a higher height

                  Even with the inverted screen a little bit angled, I have no problems to change gears. I have to be careful when opening and closing it, but that's ok for me

                            very innovative, but I have to ask why?

                            I drive a MKIV GTi as well, and I can't even imagine having another screen down there, let alone going through the process to close the bottom screen....

                            think you could get a video of the whole process? (opening and closing of both screens)

                              The original idea was to simultaneously run different programs such as gps nav and the multimedia player, but then I realized it could be even more useful to have two computers.

                              There are some videos available -opening and closing- , just follow the links a few posts up
