    Show me your pics of what you have designed and implemented??

    Once you been in this game long enough you realize that it is NOT EASY to get one that is perfectly functional and looks good too!

    ...

    Please NOTE: that is a FULL BLOWN PC in their...hence the loss of the IN-Dash real estate...what you gonna do ...mount yours in the TRUNK LOL or somewhere else?...
    I would take a "lol'able" mount in my trunk over that ANY day. Who cares, ANYONE can go buy something, anyone with the money. It takes a real man, or as you may say a "big boy" to build, install, troubleshoot, and run his own.

    lol - some ultra sensitive people on here!

    I agree, I don't like it. I'd much rather build my own and install it the way I want it.

    It just like the Drive Soft stuff to me. When someone sees my system and immediately says "Hey look! Itís that Drivesoft stuff!" I get irritated that someone would think I took the easy way out and don't have a clue about what I'm doing. That I just spent a bunch of money and bought a premade and manufactured system and slapped it in my car. Other people would be perfectly fine with it. Heck, I know there are people on here who have done it because for some reason or another they haven't been able to figure out how to put a computer in the car themselves.

    IMO - it's no different than a computer nerd getting all bent out of shape when someone asks if that computer on their desk is a dell, when in fact it's no where near a dell and has been put together by them etc.

    There are some people out there who get more out of building it themselves than buying it already made...some people voice those opinions and they are shot down for it...why? I guess it's a bunch of insecurities, but it is lame none the less.

    Ya know, I think it's funny to get all the responses of "oh, it's not custom enough so it's crap"... that's just plain personal opinion... & not even a well thought out opinion,

    By that I mean this could apply to anything really.... I mean, how many of you actually built your own car because all of the commercially available cars aren't custom enough (I have )..... How many of you have built your own engine because every car like yours has the same engine & it's not custom enough (I have)... how many of you have built there own suspension, there own amplifiers, there own speakers....this could go on forever.....

    I am not against custom at all, quite the opposite really..... & I wouldn't consider this unit for myself... but that's because I know that I can custom build a system that is going to be much more integrated & better suited for my purpose.... but that doesn't make this piece any less amazing for what it is..... & I wouldnít criticize anyone for using this any more than I would criticize someone for using a flip out touch screen alpine multimedia head unit as-is.... sure I would rather chop it up & remote flush mount the screen for myself, but that doesn't make the guy who can't automatically "crap"......

    Yeah, for a lot of us here this isn't the solution we would choose, but if you can't see the uniqueness of this piece, or appreciate the technology involved in something like this, then youíre just cheating yourself & being way too closed minded..... I think a piece like this can be wonderful for CERTAIN people & a technically amazing piece, to say its crap because it's not custom is pretty dumb... no offence intendedÖ

    I think the majority of us are saying that we wouldn't use it and that we don't like it....not so much that it's crap

    Your right red... I wasn't targeting the majority... I even said I wouldn't use this myself, but the attitude of its no good because its prefab gets me sometimes...

    Ironically I too prefer custom over prefab, but at the same time itís pretty ridiculous to insinuate that itís no good if it's not custom... I guess it just sounds arrogant & pompous to me...

    this thing is great for those installation shops that need something that they can throw in a car fast. I prefer the built in look myself and I like to roll my own systems.

    I never could understand the appeal of a motorized fold out screen, they always seem to be in the way of something when they're out.

    The webisite's flash presentations sucked.

    The person who started this thread appears overly excited about this product.
