    Ok, another question for the power pro's..
    is it ok to power the PC through the 20pin plug obviously, but then the HDD, and ATX 12V, and the LCD from the 1 cable on the M2-ATX PSU?
    or maybe i should get

    so i can use the correct power point on the M2 ..

    The only thing I would be worried about is the LCD overloading it all. I can't see the rest drawing too much... But I haven't looked up the specs on the M2..

    I don't think it's showing the native res for the lilliput, because the lilliput isn't plug & play? it just shows as 'generic non P&P monitor'
    Your video chipset may not allow the native resolution of 800x480.

    A few more questions though..
    What do most people use as a mic?
    What about bluetooth? just any old BT dongle?
    How do i incorporate that into everything else including the mobile phone (including mute) etc?
    Keep researching.

    That will work for the ATX aux power.
    The M2 should include a harness with HDD power connector(s).
    Screen can tap into a HDD power connector for 12v power.

    Perhaps you should.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Yeah as far as i can tell, the M2 supplies 8A on the HDD rail? or is that total?
    And the LCD PSU is rated t 1.1A, so that still leaves 6.9A for everything else.. should be plenty..

    With the stock speakers, is there any way to work out which pin is meant to be negative and which one is meant to be positive? or does it not matter?

    Electrically it does not matter. The electromagnet will conduct either polarity. However, mechanically not all speakers can do that. Usually speakers "push" on direction more than they "pull". So mechanically they have a direction, electrically they do not.

    Usually there is some sort of marking to denote the negative terminal. Also sometimes you can physically see it. Hook it up one way and see which way it booms with bass. If it first shoots towards you, then retracts back in, then all is good. If it sucks in, then shoots out, switch it.

    Actually i think it might be easier to work it out wire side rather than speaker side as i found this:
    http://www.lextreme.com/Lexradiowcd.pdf
    RF+ LTGRN
    RF- BLU
    LF+ PINK
    LR- VIO
    RR+ RED
    RR- WHT
    LR+ BLK
    LR- YEL
    SUB+ RED/WHT
    SUB- BLK/WHT

    I think i got it worked out right

    ^ that would work, though if you realy run stuck, you can use a 9v to pop the speakers to see which way they move.

    OK, Toyota in their wisdom have hidden the wires to the rear speaker under the rear parcel shelf, and then where they come out to the speakers they have changed color.. i cannot see the wire colors, or the speakers in order to see them move.
    However, the speakers have a larger connector, and a smaller connector.
    Would i be right in assuming the large connector(red/blue) would probably be the positive, and the smaller connector(black/orange) the negative you think?
