Hey, I saw this idea before, but you're the first to do it that I've seen! Really cool! Now someone needs to outdo you and have FOUR! HAHAHA...
Good luck on your exams.
Thank you all for the nice comments.
I will post about the doble carpc Windows/Linux A.S.A. my college exams are over.
Not a chance! 4? hahahah
That _is_ nasty!
My project: double indash, Golf IV
very innovative, but I have to ask why?
I drive a MKIV GTi as well, and I can't even imagine having another screen down there, let alone going through the process to close the bottom screen....
think you could get a video of the whole process? (opening and closing of both screens)
The original idea was to simultaneously run different programs such as gps nav and the multimedia player, but then I realized it could be even more useful to have two computers.
There are some videos available -opening and closing- , just follow the links a few posts up
how did you get the wiring done behind those screens. I have a jetta 4 and all the connectors in the back dont let the unit to lock into place.
It took a lot of effort to get that done... I had to cut small pieces of plastic here and there in the double din space to make some room. Driving the cables not horizontally but vertically to the AC/Climatronic and the coaster (literal translation of "posavasos", maybe wrong, but trying to relate to the "can holder device"... btw: What's the name for that?) helped a lot. Even so, the two screens were still a bit too big. They never fitted perfectly. This was one of the reasons that forced me to move to a double manual indash installation. I've got everything installed and tested OK now, and I'll write about it and publish some pics soon.
Just curious, I am planning a setup similar to yours (I have more room for it, though). Did you have the bottom screen invert the image so that it was right side up? If so, was that setting contained in the monitor hardware, or did you do it on the video card side? I do not know much about the onboard hardware of these monitors, and what they are capable of out of the box.
You said you went to a double manual indash installation. Do you mean two fixed screens, or manually operated folding screens?
I found the manual for the Lilliput touchkit, it answerd my question about rotating the screen display.
