Under Passenger front seat
In dash (somewhere, poss. behind 7inch screen in DIN space)
Some questions tho:
Is the glovebox likely to be too enclosed for a TC1000 temperature-wise? Will it get too hot in there? I dont want to cut large vents in the glovebox etc.
If I put it under the seat, am i likely to get problems with cable lengths (vga mainly) and interference from other car components, such as alternator etc?
I have done many searches, but no great answer has been found. Glovebox would be awesome, as I was hoping to replace the 6xcd changer in there for the PC, to make the PC look like a standard changer and therefore less-likely to get stolen. However, I am worried about temp, cooling etc.
I am likely to be running: USB GPS MOUSE, USB touchscreen and USB Radio. The keyboard etc is PS2 infra-red and so the receiver has to be line of sight of the keyboard, so this would have to be somewhere in dash.
I have the options of building my own case or making a abs-plastic box/metal box into a case if needed.
Any info or pointers would be great. Really not sure what to do.
