    My new custom control panel, multiple inputs and an LCD

    Hi. I added a custom control panel in the place where my cup holders used to be:

    • Space Navigator (for things like scrolling lists, selecting different centrafuse modules)
    • Arcade-style buttons hooked to an Ultimarc mini-pac (for play/pause and triggering voice recognition)
    • 16x2 LCD (shows obdii data and other random things, custom code in-work)
    • All of this compliments the original touchscreen-based system


    A picture:

    Looks good until you spill soda into it because you don't have a cupholder

    Not sure how willmeyer did it...but I just put an ON/OFF rocker switch in line with the IGN signal wire. So I can cut off the ignition from my power supply. Just a cheap way to allow me to restart the PC.
