    Does anyone have a complete wiring diagram for a carputer?

    I am a little confused on where to start.

    I am not sure on getting the power to the carputer.

    I would like to know how to get the power to the carputer , starting from the battery and ending at the pc.

    I have been searching and have ended with no luck.


    Thanks

    search the show off your projects forum, there are diagrams in there and also more than enough pictures to allow you to visualise yourself, half the fun is figuring out the hard stuff yourself....wiring is actually the easiest....

      You need a piece of hosepipe, just make sure it's downhill to the pc.

        It's simialr to wiring up an amplifier.

        basically use GOOD ENOUGH wire (like 20amp)

        BATTERY ===[fuse]====|cabin=====================CARPC
        ignition yellow wire--------------
        ground=====================
        HEAD UNIT ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~audio wire

        make sure it's all fused.

        If you buy an Opus PSU you get a wiring diagram with it.
