  • Suggestions for installing a carpc in a 2000 Honda Odyssey?

    I am looking to install a CarPC and I have seen some decent installs, but looking for some direction from someone that has done it to a 2000 Odyssey LX for vehicle specific items, and anyone else for CarPC related issues or items.

    Below are my requirements (thoghts) for the integrated system. Some of the features may end up being on the HU and will be under HU and Other section.

    ITX Mobo w/ 2Ghz or better
    1-2GB RAM
    120GB + storage for MP3, etc
    Dash mounted touch screen (either manual or fixed, not motorized as it is another thing to break)
    Under front seat mounting of pc

    CarPC Features
    Media (MP3, Video, etc)
    OBD2 integration (bought OBDPro USB today)

    HU and Other (possible integration in PC)
    Radio and TV (HD on both if realistic and stable, Radio is preferred, TV is wish list item)
    RDS (on the touch screen is the preferred display location)
    Dual Video for rear seating, headrest or ceiling mounted without blocking driver's vision. (currently have 2x removable/portable DVD players that hang from head rest)

    HU supporting RDS, CD, other normal features, etc..
    4x75 AMP (possibly Blau THA475, mounted under front seat with PC)
    Front components (Pioneer 720PRS, DLS UL6, or similar)
    Rear speakers (DLS PS4 or similar off HU power)
    Sub (eD SQ10, 7kv, 9kv or similar mounted under other front seat, off bridged channels on amp)

    I should be able to do this and keep it somewhat stealth like.
    The rear video doesn't have to be integrated into the PC system, it can be stand alone.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I'd recommend searching the work logs section for odyssey.

    I wouldn't expect anyone else with the exact same vehicle to just be waiting to respond to you though since there aren't many odyssey installs on here.

    Your best bet will be to do some digging, some reading, and some testing with software to get exactly what you want.

    to the forums and good luck on your project!
