    corsa carpc stage 1 it works !!!!!!

    Hi all,

    after much work , research and testing i finaly have a pc in my car.

    it's at stage 1 get it in and see if it works.

    next is get rid of the bugs / problems and then tidy it all up.

    so far the biggest problem is a lack of a volume control to quickley change it. I would like to use the wheel mounted controler but so far no luck. Any one ever got a 2000> corsa/astra steering wheel control working ?

    I also need to get gps working but thats an easy one as i have a hicom gps and navigator software.

    Some pics of the install so far.

    epia cl1000 mobo with 512mb ddr with opus 90w psu. the hdd is behind the mobo and i have to fir the slm dvd in too. It wll be coverd with cloth possble leaving the area with the mobo clear. I think it needs a fan grill too.


    SPL 1200w 5.1 amp from ebay with usb soundblaster mp3+


    Both in the boot


    Front screen mounted in pleace of the dual din stereo


    complete with velcro mountng system


    i might fit it into the dash later.
    It's hard to see in the day with sun glear.

    running frodoplayer very nice.

    I have a usb wintv with fm radio so i can also use a rear view cam but had problems with radiator. A friend is getting me a dlink to try.

    I happened upon this USB InfraRed webcam on eBay, thought I'd leave a note for you. I haven't used it, didn't look into it, and in no way recommend or have any opinion on it.

    I would look for a wide angle camera for backup - here is the cheapest one I could find, but it does not have the LED's:

    here is a pic from another seller:

    I don't have this camera, since I am still deciding where to put one, but I can't see much use of a normal (not wide angle) camer for a reverse camera.

    sorry i have not replied sooner and thanks for the cam links everyone.

    you can just see them at the side of the heater control.

    Everything is still working but i am having keyboard problems. I have a usb mini keyboard but windows does not find it the next time it re-boots.
    I was thinking of using a sky navigator with girder or something I think some one else did this here before.

    Hey, I like it.
    But you should use another Skin, Try Brushed Aluminium Skin Brushed Metal its not so dark as yours so ist better to read with sunlight. It will also fit better in your Car, because of the silver
