    Yeah more or less the same. I have inline switches in the ACC line in front of the head unit, the PC, and the LCD screen in my center console -- basically so I can turn them off if I want, even though when ON they are controlled by the car ignition.

    I have a switch on the ignition line so I can prevent the PC from coming on if I am only switching the ignition on for a few seconds. I want to change it up to a 3 position switch so I can also keep IGN signal to the PSU and keep the PC running if I shut the car off for a moment, such as when dropping something off at work or getting gas.

    Yeah I want to do exactly the same thing -- problem is I just couldn't find a 2 pole switch I liked the looks of ;-)

    Thanx for reply guys. Need some help here with wiring.

    Rocker Switch is not turning on my Motherboard and PSU. I have connected the both + and - wire properly to Swicth as instructed here.

    I can see the Blue LED glowing.So connection is perfect. but it is not turning on my PSU and Motherboard.

    I am thinking to put this Rocker switch in one of the blank switch near A/C Fan control as you can see in the pic.

    Thanks ;-). Sadly I don't have any pics of the inside/bottom, but I'll take some next time I take it out. Basically I left the main part of the cup holder intact, just dremeled out parts of it to make more room, bu tI'm using it for the "floor" of the little compartment so I have something to rest the stuff on, like the USB hub and the mini-paq. As far as the spacenav, I took it totally apart, and its mounted by having the flange, which you can see, sitting on a circular hole of a slightly smaller diameter. In other words the flange fits on the panel just like it used to fit on the silver metal base it came with.
