  • shuttle xpc in an 89 volvo 740

    Hi,

    I'm about to install my ****tle X computer into my volvo with a 10" monitor but am having some trouble deciding where to put the monitor and the case.

    Has anyone done an install in this car and where did they put it?

    Any help would be appreciated

    The computer is a
    Shuttle X SB52G2
    P4 2.4
    768 RAM
    radeon 7000 Video
    dvd/cdrw
    8N1 card reader
    30gig HD

    Thanks

    "****tle". Heh. Funny.

    1) PIcs of your interior might help.
    2) It's your ******* car. Why don't you find a location that works for you?
    3) A 10" monitor, in my opinion, is best suited to a large dashboard area or a flip-down on the ceiling.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      I'm still trying to find a good reason for putting a 10" screen in a car! an 8" is huge in most cars. manufacturers use 6 to 7". As DP said, better suited to flip down and i presume he means for the rear passengers as if you do a flip down 10" in the front you anit gonna see ****!

        yeah 10 is kind of big but I thought 6 or 7 seemed small.

        Here are some pictures. This is not my car but mine is the same.

        I was going to install it in front of the sunroof there. It is a flip down. It will block the rearview though.
