    Great suggestion. Install a carPC, costing about a grand then just live with the crappy sound quality.

    Think I might try my ideas first.

    Tried a ground loop isolator to see if it would help, and it has.
    Both buzz and whine have been banished.

    Well that's a first.

    Thats what the guy at the car audio fitters said, when he tried it. He said it had never worked in all the installs he had dealt with, but we tried it just in case.

    I finally found the charger for my camera, so I can finally show a photo of my install.


    Currently loving the car pc. The next thing I want to add is GPS but am completely lost on the software to go for. Was thinking MapMonkey and Destiantor but it sounds like this is becoming unworkable. Any other suggestions?
