  • AFKfest 2009 - Greg Planthaber Car Computer Installation


    Rob Wray from mp3Car takes a look at Greg's car PC. Greg's Lexus has been tricked out with some very clean looking computer components.

    Under the stock flip down panel reveals the normal Lexus screen. Greg has re-wired the open button to allow it switch the video input over to Centrafuse.

    Every time I see that car, it's more awesome than the last time. Major kudos for your install Greg, one of the cleanest I've seen.

            Thanks for the kind words!

            Now my issue is "What's next?"

            There's always room for improvement, but I don't want to add things just for the sake of adding things.

            - A Sprint or Verizon AirCard would be nice but...$50/month for CarPC Internet access? Can't really justify that.

            - Replacing the factory screen with a high-resolution touchscreen? The issue with that is I lose my factory navigation system...which I use frequently.

            - I now have a really-cool Fusion Brain (thank you for that!), but I'm not sure what to do with it. I know what it CAN do, but I haven't thought of something creative (yet practical/useful) to do with it.

                  Greg, I gotta say great job. I like how you kept the lexus oem look. I'd like to follow in your footsteps with my 2008 Lexus IS 250. Could you point me in the right direction? In the IS, the AC controls are in the indash unit.. Is there a way to control the AC unit via Centrafuse? Or is the only way toggling between the two inputs? Any thougts suggestions or tips would be much appriciated.

                  Once again great work!
                  Gus
