Well its getting close to meet time, you guys think we should start a list like we did last time so we know what kind of turn out to expect? I will definitely be there and this time I am probably bringing a different car with a brand new Intel ATOM Car PC system. I love this system pimarily because it boots from hibernation in about 15-20 seconds! Anyways I will save my excitement for the meet, hope to see you all there!
Dude dont knock yourself for not getting an SSD, they are expensive only reason I have one is I got mine courtesy of work :).
Be carefull what type of SSD you buy they are definitely not all created equally, I'd recommend you buy your SSD from dvnation.com its all they pretty much sell and they only carry quality drives.
I'll start the attendance list
AAAAHHHH!!! the lcd that john gave me fried too :( Im having horrible luck with these things. Although its possibly because of connecting it straight to battery. I bought a carnetix so now I have wire it to the trunk so I have space and catch anything on fire.
Lok wat cpu did you get one yours? Im looking at the 330 atom is there any lag on your system?
Anyone willing to do a meet in the Treasure Coast area? I could find a park, and set it all up (already have a few places in mind; specifically the Vero Beach/Sebastian area)
On the first lcd I cut the power cord so that the barrel connector goes to the lcd and the other i soldered wires to the ground and to battery this one lasted a month.
2nd lcd did the same but to cig lighter but this made me uncomfortable so I rewired to battery again but with a fuse but I cracked the lcd screen somehow in the process :censored:
the 3rd one was johns it needed a little trick to work and it reqired the motor to move a switch but the motor died on me and while I was trying to figure out that it was the motor the screen went black hasnt turned on since and to the garbage that one went too.
connecting it to radio harness? hmmm never heard of that going to read up on that.
My plan now is to do it the right and hard way im going to have the pc setup in the trunk and have nexson make the shell of the case for me and have the lcd and laptop powered by the carnetix power supply. That will be after I paint the car though :peep:
@Radracer: I see why not, just read the first post and pm john1701 once you find a spot that goes along with the first post
