    Did you ever purchase a MK802 or other A10 board?...

    Did you ever purchase a MK802 or other A10 board? I've been looking into the A10 chip a lot lately, seems like a perfect candidate for a small footprint CarPC. I really want to get my hands on one of...

    I'll poke around in the dash again. When I added the 12v relay, I checked/tightened all the connections to the amp itself.

    I would have thought that I botched the install as well, but I got 3 months of use before anything screwy started happening. Haven't checked the fuses, I figured if those were blown it wouldn't power...

    Theres a program called MiniCam from CuriousTech that overlays GPS and OBDII data on a webcam feed. Haven't set it up myself, yet. Need to find a good place to mount the cam.

    So, it turns out putting that 15 amp auto-resetting circuit breaker was a good idea. The usb initialization "thump" apparently causes the amplifier to pull over 15 amps. If I start the car and allow...

    If it is completely dead, a post-mortem will be fun. I'd like to know what the root cause was; seems like a bizarre way to fail.

    You guys may find this amusing:

    Went out last night and grabbed a relay and a 15 amp auto-reset circuit breaker. Wired it all up, tried it out, and it worked great. I thought to myself "finally...

    I figured buying a cheap amp would bite me in the long run. What brand would you recommend? I guess I could bump up to a 5 channel while I'm at it. Short term, would a standard automotive relay...
  9. So, I bought a better meter. My screen and...

    So, I bought a better meter. My screen and auto-on circuit draw less than a 5th of an amp at peak. The amp remote wire was peaking at 3 amps at a quarter volume. Why would the remote wire have a...

    Do not have a clamp meter. Bought a meter that could measure 10 amp, but the display is bad. Hopefully I can exchange it tonight and try to determine what I did wrong.

    Thanks for the reply.

    To clarify, I am not running a headunit. The only devices on, what used to be, the radio accessory line are a minitouch 700, remote wire for an amp, and the auto-on circuit....

    Not sure if my little multimeter can handle the amperage (I think it only goes up to 600mA) that something on the circuit is drawing. The screen is rated at < 9w/1 amp, and from what I've read, the...

    There are x86 android builds tailored for Eee netbooks. This would give you all the hardware flexibility you could ask for and allow you to use android as the OS.

    Is there anyway one could assemble this circuit in a manner that it would create a high current draw? In other words, how important is it that the relays are rated at one amp? I added this circuit on...

    Did you ever get further with your research in to RPi? What HDMI to VGA converter did you get?

    Experiments with this configuration have proven unfruitful. I have tried running XMBC and Boxee on the netbook, and using the respective remote application on Android to control them, but both media...

    The router actually provides two things, in theory: a cheap way of reliably booting the netbook, and constant wifi connection.

    I admit that the setup is more complicated than it would be with a...

    Preface: Woot had the Velocity Micro Cruz T301, a 7" android tablet, for $75 shipped a few days ago, so I jumped on the deal. After purchasing, I did some research and found that it was 533mhz MIPS...
