    Hmmmm........ maybe I am not imaginative. But I cant seems to find the spot you place your mike. Perhaps some pics speaks a thousand words? Also I check out the StreetDeck bluetooth adapter but I find the description too brief to integrate this item into car pc.

    It's working pretty good with StreetDeck voice commands but will test when I get StreetDeck compatible bluetooth adapter. The StreetDeck Bluetooth adapter work with phones ONLY!

    I'm also considering fishing the mic cable down to rear view mirror if it doesn't work well with phone.

    Wow okie, that's a lot of alterations for just one mic. Let me test where I should place my mic to get the best results.

    By the way, just wondering. Since you install the USB touchpad already, why would you still need a Liliput touchscreen? Of course, since this is sun readable, I presume that is a strong point to install it. Suppose, there is a sun readable non-touchscreen, am I rite to say that you would install that over your present monitor given that you will be using your touchpad?

    The mic install wasn't difficult at all, maybe took 15 minutes to run line for mic (only had to remove 2 screws).

    Concerning the touch screen I didn't think of the touch pad till well after I had installed the screen. With the touch pad installed I really don't use the touch screen. Although I do like the cool factor of touch screen, being transreflective factor was the major selling point.

    As far as installing a non touch screen that was transreflective I donít think it exist (I may be wrong ) but price would have been the determining factor if a trans nontouch screen were $300 less I would have probably gone that route.

    Men, that touchpad is a great addition. If I had known earlier, I would have ordered it too with all my parts. How is it treating you though? And you know I cannot forget to mention that the install is NICE. U did a good job bro. Kudos. I'm feeeeling inspired minute by minute here on mp3car.

    The touch pad works great haven't had any issue's and saves me from putting finger prints all over my screen.

    Concerning the Rockford Fosgate 3sixyt.2 sound processor check the link for detailed product info.

    In a nutshell its a sound processor/line output converter/equalizer/crossover controlled via bluetooth device (laptop, pc, palm smartphone). I used it as it would allow me to connect my factory stereo to after market amps as well as improve sound quality.

    Hi Kimota, been bz with getting the parts for my car pc. All of them are here now. But guess what? I am stuck because I cant get power to the stock nav. The person who sold me didnt include the harness or cable. So I managed to hunt for a circuit diagram that I can connect to the pins found on the stock nav for power. Unfortunately, my electrical knowledge is way rusty. I cant relate the diagram to the finished product.

    Maybe you can help?

    Hey XMatrix

    What you have there is a diagram instructing how build your own circuit board instead of using the one on the factory Nav monitor.

    I'm a bit rusty too but this should help.

    Hi what's a relay? Where do I find it on my stock nav? Or is it a component I need to buy? What about the photo? Where does the components on the circuit diagram fit on the photo? My problem is that I dont know which pins on my stock nav to connect. Can you help?
