Hey guys, semi noob here, but looking to learn and eventually hopefully create my own carputer. I'm currently working on figuring out where and how to mount the screen before I do much further planning.
I drive a 2007 Honda accord SE v6, with the integrated radio and 6 cd changer built in and the cubby pocket beneath that on the front console. the cubby is already modded with an auxiliary audio input jack connected to the aux port on the bottom of the radio behind and above the cubby. My issue is wanting to keep things looking pretty factory so it doesn't look cobbled together, but avoid too much alteration to the car if possible, at least for a start. I also don't want to block the radio as I still use that.
As far as what I want out of a carputer, I've not chosen anything yet as far as parts (waiting till I'm certain I can mount the monitor), but I do have ideas as far as what features I want:
phone connection integration (Bluetooth, etc)
ODB monitoring display for personal logs
other features as project progresses possible
So, all that said, for now I'm just looking into ways to mount the touchscreen. can't decide if some sort of mold on the dashboard would work, or remodel the sunglasses holder (its just the holder and personal lights, no extras) as a kind of flip down screen or something like that. also can't decide on an OS between android or linux or, if features require, an extremely stripped down windows. so any help would be very useful right now.
