Just wanted to say it looks really nice. The buttons look like stock. I especially like the keyboard & USB plugs in the dash
Hi I am new to this board, I wanted to see if I could get some feed back on a system I have started. Here is the way I turn my Book PC on and off as well as my subwoofer volume controll setup. please check out my photo album to see more pics at: http://albums.photopoint.com/j/Album...122&Auth=false it is listed under Passat Computer. The Pc specs are:
128 megs of ram
30gig 7200 rpm drive
I need help setting up some voice support and remote control applications, right now I use a micro keyboard and finger track ball, but any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Nice & clean
sweet setup....... i was just wondering why u need a spare ECU?
i like the sliding drawer in the trunk......does that come with the passats?
amzing work on the knobs....looks stock!
Thanks for the good words, no the drawer was custom made for the car, the spare ECU has the factory chip that came with the car, I currently run a race chip that bumps my turbo pressure to 14-16lbs for about 47hp gain over stock..all the while I can switch back if need be for warranty purposes. The switches did take a LONG time,i had to unfold the USB connector cut the hole file...file.scrape....test fit....you get the picture, which leads me to my next point..the usb is a little flaky probably due to the length of the run, does anyone know of a cheap powered repeater? Thanks again, I can see I found a new place to hang and swap ideas..
Nice! Where did you pick up the power and reset buttons and switches? I don't wanna have to go out and buy a case just to cannibalize the buttons.
What voice software are you going to use? I'm planning on using Game Commander 2. It isn't perfect but I'd say the accuracy is about 80%. Every now and then, GC2 will pick up voice commands that weren't issued and I have no idea why. I'm going to install a mic with a switch. Then I can switch on the mic when issuing commands.
For other control, I'm going to use Logitech's cordless keyboard and cordless trackball.
You mentioned putting in a remote: the infrared receiver most people use is the IRMAN, found at www.evation.com/irman
I use it and it works great, especially with Winamp.
oh...btw...beautiful install job, but the keyboard has to go
