    I am really impressed by the work you've done. Especially the accomodation of electronics just below the roof. I have almost the same car and to tell you the truth, i was looking for a better place for the liliput or xenarc 7" display. Did you think of the front of the Double DIN? if there is no head unit there???

    talk about using up waisted space eh? how is nRoute off road, can you load trails into it???
    Life Dosn't come with a reset button, if it did you might as well turn the game off.

    Hey guys, thanks for the positive feedback. Havenīt been on here for a while, been busy enjoying my off-roading carputer experience.

    To answer your questions, well indeed the roof was basically my ONLY option to mount the carputer, I though about under the seats however space was too tight, and with constant beach trips, the carputer would quickly take a beating. Iīve found that the roof location is ideal, it takes advantage of wasted space, looks fine, and doesnīt obstruct anything.

    I was also iffy about the screen placement, the double DIN was an option, however I am using a headunit, so there was not enough space to place the screen and the head unit in the double DIN, plus I find that this would have placed the screen too low for comfort, the height it is right now is ideal.

    As for nRoute maps and offroading, they are awesome! nRoute was pretty much my ONLY option for GPS maps here in venezuela, but the program and maps are great ( I have the whole country very detailed) I can custom create all my routes if I am going to remote unchartered places (read no paved roads)
