    Aisdale, I would still like to hear your thoughts on the audio out.

    I really like the idea of an in car pc, but I would like to know what the sound to noise ratio for the audio out is before comitting. Any hi-fi options available? Dealers?

    Thx

    Took me a while to get back but finally got the carpc installed. Running CF 4.2,of course...


    gaps to be filled.


    OBDII


    Destinator, OZ map



    MP3 Player

    ...now here's the story. Initial problems encountered so far. With the TC1000,the only prog loaded is CF and I was playing MP3 while navigating...Voice prompts are all garbled in destinator. I've got 512 mem, i'll try and update all the drivers see if this will help bec. the TC1000 appears quite slow. The unit is noisy but once connected the engine noise drowns the units fan noise.

    GL701-TV/C/T. There is this TERRIBLE humming noise as soon as you turn on the unit that increases with speed. Even with the unit properly grounded and noise filters connected the noise is still there. This unit comes with an analog TV tuner that does not work even with the best antenna around. FM is weak and can't pick any AM signals. Even with professional installers doing the job, I THINK the noise is inherent with this unit.

    Be warned, other than the good looks, I honestly think this combination (Lilliput TC1000, GL701-TV/C/T) is a resounding DUD.

    I just bought one and it's killer. I upgraded mine to an SP13000 with 512MB ram. The front buttons are programable for use in winamp which is beautiful. I can control my music without a touch screen and save some money. The front USB ports are also slick.
    ....
    I looked at the option to upgrade my unit to SP13000 as well, but I have found that the layout of the connectors of the SP13000 and the EPIA TC-1000 are different.
    Am i missing something :
    Epia TC 1000 - http://www.epiacenter.com/modules.ph...howpage&pid=33

    SP13000 - http://www.epiacenter.com/modules.ph...howpage&pid=58

    Alternator Noise - GL701-TV/C/T

    GL701-TV/C/T. There is this TERRIBLE humming noise as soon as you turn on the unit that increases with speed. Even with the unit properly grounded and noise filters connected the noise is still there. This unit comes with an analog TV tuner that does not work even with the best antenna around. FM is weak and can't pick any AM signals. Even with professional installers doing the job, I THINK the noise is inherent with this unit.

    I just installed same GL701-TV/C/T in my '06 Corolla and also have bad engine noise. I was about to get a noise filter from Radio Shack and also throw another ground on the chasis to see if I can get noise out. I chose this unit so that my computer-hating wife will still be able to listen to the radio without booting up the PC, so really like the setup. BTW, you just saved me $50 on a powered TV antenna for it! Thanks! Let me know if you were able to get rid of that hum please. Thanks for the write-up.
