    Need help with first car pc in HSV GTO

    Hey guys,

    Finally bought the car I wanted ever since they came out a 2005 HSV GTO, I dont mind the factory looking setup with audio but I would like navigation iPod OBDII etc.

    Ive decided to go car pc over tablet at the moment due to more options being avaliable, I know I want to run centrafuse front end with a double din Mini-ITX from bybyte but mp3 car make a facia thats fits standard gto surround can I use both the bybyte double din and the mp3 surround or is it a case of one or the other.

    What happened to infill g4 and stand alone double din pc ? are there any good ones on the market at the moment

    Having all the computer mounted in the dash while having a factory looking surround is ultimate.

    Has anyone used the bybyte double din is room going to a issue as I want a contained system but would like to add things in the future, I want GPS sat nav iPod and even the abilty to tune my car via OBDII and tuning software running on the computer behind the centrafuse.

    From looking at both items to me it looks like one or the other.

    But the GTO bezel looks pretty neat and can't see why you will not find a simple method used by other on here to mount a mini itx or other board.

    it kind of died. the lack of support really did it in. there are a couple models by revosys, but i have not really read any reviews of them.


    the mp3car version includes the screen, a double din screen bezel as well as your cars double din mounting kit. they show it fully assembled, these are the parts that make up that item(they would ship it to you assembled):

    the bybyte link is for a full case. the most recent person i saw interested in that was unable to use it due to it's extreme depth-- so i highly recommend that you find out how deep your dash is before ordering that. also, don't forget that you will also need another 2-3" past the back of the case for wires and motherboard connections.

    Android is an operating system, just as WindowsXP is.
    No, you won't be able to put any Windows software on an Android device.
    No, you won't be able to upgrade it later on, other than replacing the device with a newer one.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
