  • AFKfest 2009 - Will Meyer Car Computer Installation



    Rob Wray from mp3Car talks with Will Meyer, member of the mp3Car Forum about his car computer installation.

    Will runs Centrafuse along with his space navigator for control, integrated webcam, dashcommand gauges, game emulators and OBD 2 data.

    Will has written some custom code to have an display panel on his console update with OBD 2 data and GPS data. He has also written some code that allows him to sms his car to retrieve information such as speed, gps location and OBD 2 data.

    Great video!

    It showcases what a clean installation Will has done. All the custom-fabricated and perfectly-fitted panels really make this one of the best CarPC installations I've seen.

    Although, I have to draw the line with the wife being able to SMS the car to find out where it is and how fast it's going!

        @SFiorito -That's funny, she's a good sport for coming out. And that Mazda WAS a very nice install. I think the slick matching plexiglass control cluster is what did it for me.

            ROFL!

            I was looking at the video thinking "God, I REALLY don't want to see how bad I look on camera. I'm sure I talked too fast and stuttered through the whole interview!"

                Sounds like something else to add to the list of what to improve for the next one - an outline for video that includes something like: name, MP3Car UserName, hometown, car type, brief description of CPU/hardware/software/special novelty items, 5 minutes for demo, and whether or not anything is available on the forums that make it special (RRCode, Autoit, custom code, custom hardware, etc). MP3Car could distribute this at the meet&greet so owners could prepare for a day/jot note on it/etc prior to the show. This way everybody is basically following the same format.

                  I thought you were cute..... OOPS did I say that out loud, LMFAO.......

                  Anyways I love the finishes. Only thing i hated was that they didnt show the actual PC and were it is. Also I hate those arcade buttons. Every time I see them I think a Tekken Arcade machine is going to pop up. I do see why you used them though, they match 100% with the finish. Can I ask though, why didnt you kill the headunit. I think I recall you saying its digital and has no CD player, I have never seen that before. It is cool it has the little screen with the MAZDA logo, and the red background makes it look technologic. I wish my interior was bling bling like that. If I try to go that route it wont look OEM though, since everyone knows Dodge makes boring interiors, or at least on their trucks they do....
