My CARPC system idea, Is it possible? Help!
So, I want to install a CARPC. I have a PC built, programmed, and RR installed.
I have an 08 Nissan Xterra. It has the rockford fosgate HU and speakers which I will most likely replace. I have Pioneer premier with Blue Tooth
Ultimate goal. Run my mp3 collection, nav, internet etc...Keep my stock options.
Wants - I want to keep my steering wheel conrtols - Volume, Change track, Mode, Phone(Bluetooth). (Understand mode might not be possible.)
First idea...Keep the RF HU or an equivelant to sustain use of the factory steering wheel conrtols and the 6CD in dash. Run it through AUX from the CARPC. This would suck because I would have to find somewhere else to put the TFT touchscreen and the options are small.
Second idea... Ditch the HU all together, place the touchscreen in dash. Is it possible to keep the steering wheel controls? The bluetooth? The blutooth runs through the stock deck and the microphone is in the ceiling (factory). The activation for the phone is on the steering wheel as well. I understand some people will move the HU to under the seat or in the glovebox to maintain its controll over the system...ANY IDEAS guys? Any input would be most appreciated.
