Installing Mac Mini in My 05 Alti SER
Hey everyone, I've been reading a lot of these forums for over a year now, just restarted to read a couple of days ago. Anyways I have an 05 Altima SER, was looking into a Pioneer Avic Z2, but at 2200$ USD, I rather build myself something that I could be proud of, especially that I have an almost brand new mac mini, not being used everyday...So I thought, why not put it in my car. I've been researching a lot, and had a few questions...here goes.
I know, I know, I shouldnt ask this, but what touchscreen should I get that works well with the mac mini? 7" I think the stock navigation bezel is 7", so which works the best with the mac mini.
I really want to get rid of my standalone xm satellite radio in my car and incorporate it into my carpc. I will be running windows on my mac, as obvioulsy there is a ton more support for windows then mac. I would like to know what I need to get it to work. I checked out the store on here, and it seems I need a universal tuner and usb thingy to get it working...but does that give me a satellite radio id, and then i call it in to activate it or how does it work?
How do I plug everything up in my car? My car has a stock amp, but I have no idea how everything works in car audio, therefore I never looked at it...
Also about how long from engine startup to enjoying my stuff on my mac should I expect? 90 seconds is about right, right?
This is the list I have till now...please add in if Im missing:
Mac mini(already have)
Carnetix P1900 with Mac mini cables
GPS antenna (already have)
Thanks and I will probably add on more questiosn when I think of some.
Thanks a lot again and I appreciate everyones help in advance.
