2003 Jeep Wrangler in dash plan
This being my first post I'll give a quick introduction. Several years ago I got the idea to make a car computer and spent a lot of time reading how-to's and fantasizing about all the fancy things it was going to do then realized I had no money. Now, a few years later I've sold the car originally planned for the install and I'm buying a 2003 Wrangler.
So, present day I'm trying to bring myself up to speed on the new technology that's available. It seems like I can get a lot more stuff pre-assembled today which is great for me since I'm pretty handy with software and stuff but never built a PC from the ground up. So here's my current plan and I'd appreciate some feedback (did I forget anything, will everything work together, etc.)
Lilliput 629GL-70NP/C/T 7" VGA Touchscreen w/ Auto Back-up Camera Switch
I'm not planning to install a back-up cam right away but would like to eventually.
Fanless Micro Intel Vehicle Computer
Windows 7 Home Premium
4 extra USB ports
Vehicle power supply
40 GB SSD or 40 GB ruggedized HDD (pros or cons?)
Centrafuse Navigation 3.0
BU-353 Weather-proof GPS Receiver
Will this antenna work if I have to mount it inside the Jeep? I don't really have a roof to mount it on...
Andrea Electronics Superbeam Array Microphone Bundle SUMA
I'm going to use this project as a guide. Is that too ambitious a project for someone who's never done something like that? I'm nervous I'm going to end up with a nasty looking hole or putty all over or something.
I'm also planning on getting a small amp because my understanding is the stock one is in the HU but I'm not looking to upgrade the whole sound system at this time. I should be able to use pretty much any decent amp with this set up, right?
So is that enough to get me started? Besides wiring and stuff is there anything else I need to buy to get it up and running?
Thanks so much!
