  • n00b with a few questions.

    Hey, I apologize in advance if somebody beat me to the punch for this question but I looked around and can't seem to get one that would be an answer for the setup I'm looking to use. I'm about to be looking at getting a Honda Civic '07 or '08. Here's the list of the basic setup of what I'm wanting to get put in.

    CarNetix CNX-P2140 185W Dual Output Intelligent DC-DC Regulator

    In Dash Touch
    Xenarc 700IDT In Dash 7 inch Touch Screen VGA

    ASUS EEE Box B202

    Now I'm a n00b at the whole CarPC thing but i'm very knowledgeable about PCs in general however. I know that the EEE Box won't just simply hook up to the CarNetix CNX-P2140. What do I have to do to wire them together. Preferably how can I hook them up and not have it look totally jury rigged. Is there anything I'm overlooking or missing to get the stuff setup? Thanks in advance for any of the help.

    Chop the connector off the power brick and do a nice soldering job to connect it to the wiring from the Carnetix. Don't forget to use heat-shrink tubing.
    It may still look "jury rigged", but it will also look neat and well thought-out, as if a professional made the splice.
