Chevrolet/Holden/Vauxhall/Opel Vectra 2003
Yes, I know, the title sucks....
Anyway I got a Opel Vectra 2003 and its pretty nice :) But it is obvious why we are here: To make a CarPC.
Currently, the only PC related mod I have (if any, this is laughable) is a head unit with USB. Thats it :P
- Audio: This is priority number 1. In general, the Vectra has a good sound system but we are looking for more: Amps, speakers, etc....
- Sensors: Everything from wind, speed, rainfall, forecast, etc. Lets make the car detect surroundings.
- Wireless technology: GPS, GLONASS, Bluetooth, Wifi, Infrared, etc. If its wireless, lets put it in the car
- Easy of access: From what you will see in the pictures, this car has 6 button on the steering wheel. I want to be able to control the car PC from these buttons. Also, voice recognition is a must.
- Cameras: All four sides.
Thats my starting point for now. I plan this as a 6-12 month project.
Ill leave here some picture and see if you guys see any constrains as in wires, speaker sizes (Im worried about the small ones in the car doors), trunk (no problem there for a PC or a amp), etc.
Here is the trunk:
Its even better than the picture actually shows....
Length of the car:
With this cause wiring issues???
I think it is a double DIN so looks good for a touchscreen. Above there is a small GID2 display........Im thinking of replacing it as well as it pretty much says nothing; Maybe have this as the rear view camera.
6 button steering wheel:
If you guys need any more pictures, just ask :)
