    Like RevheadKev and Kosti, i am worried at the price of the unit. We always get shafted with shipping + units that are slightly different for Australia (in this case DAB+ only)

    Hi, im in Australia and am researching DAB+ integration.

    I am about to start building my second carpc, but will be testing indoors replicating the car first.

    sure did... for anyone interested... ill post the Purchase List:

    order has been placed, and have bought variations of different components and resistor values, etc. if i need to alter it slightly.

    thanks for the help.. i have added the zener (not sure if its right), and changed the resistors 18kOhm and 10kOhm and to 1/4 watt.. leaving only the 100ohm as 1/2watt.
    Ive also added a Diode at the...

    ok.. ive changed whats needed. and added the input as you suggested using the resistor voltage divider. my car runs between 11.5 - 14.4v.

    which will change the input on the PIC from 4.1v to 5.1v ...

    Awsome!

    Well i need 12v input signal (which is from a sensor in the car), but i can use a regulator... or the main PIC regulator with a relay...... doesnt bother me
    and a 12v output to activate a...

    ahh well. i might try the decade counter idea first, and if that fails, ill try get into PICs..

    So as for the parts..

    1 x NOT Gate... like...

    I need to figure out a way to enable a long trigger (which i need to be around the 2 second mark) to ouput a short pulse, say 0.5 - 1 second... However if the trigger is under the 2 seconds, i need...
