  • This is where is starts. tC CarPC

    **Okay, I am a car audio idiot, and forum dumb also.**

    So with that said, I stumbled upon bembowe's CarPC in his midnight blue tC and I thought it was hot. So I started researching. I came up with a parts list, and I made a diagram.
    I would just like your advice, and your inputs, did I draw anything wrong? (I'm sure I did) Just tell me how to correct it and if my parts list sucks or the information is incorrect, please give me suggestions. I have not purchased any parts yet since I'm not back in the states. This is for: 2007 Scion tC.



    Thanks in advance!
    Help?

    Insert a fuse close to the battery and use distro blocks to distribute +12 and ground. You can tap into your cigarrete lighter wire or somewhere in your fuse box for the ignition lead.

      looks good, except for a fuse on the main positive feed, and a missing fused distro block (can never be too safe)
      also you forgot the USB/Serial cable from the Touchscreen to the main board

          With wire...

          Seriously...
          Search the forums. This is something that has been covered many, many times.
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?

              New here too, Thanks for posting such a detailed plan, this will help us all. I am going with a laptop setup, which you may think about with the costs of components that you are getting plus the addition of an OS.

                  Up there by the monitor, you don't need a relay, you can connect the "turn-on" wire directly to the M2. Also, you can power the monitor by taping into the M2's +12 and ground output.

                  EDIT: Good luck with that M2, it's a toss-up whether it will work first time around..
